I'd rather it go to someone here than put it out on Craig's list...be reasonable

Tires less than 5000 miles.

Seats recently redone

Includes orignal wheels, original 1098 engine (not running)
and bunches of extra this and that.

The car has won some awards at meets in the Pacific Northwest.
#1 Box Sprite Seattle, 2013? Third place Portland, 2015. and best Mark III Sprite
at the 50th reunion in Lake of the Ozarks (Missouri) 2008. Yes, I drove it back there from
my home in Washington State.

On that trip I claim the 21st Century longest single day drive in a Sprite... 1187 miles from Gillette Wyoming to Kelso, Washington via I-90 thru Seattle.

Most years I've been driving it the Vancouver B.C. ABFM, about 500 miles round trip.

I've worked really hard to get rid of all the squeaks and rattles and very nearly succeeded.

The down side... Mr. Tinworm has been at work in the usual places, and there is a sping in the hood
where I closed it and created a dimple.

I'm posting it here first because I know it will go to a loving home. If it doesn't sell, Ill take it to the All British Swap Meet in April in Portland. Only after that to Craig's list.

Located in Kelso Washington,... bring a truck for all the extra parts...and a partner to drive the truck back home.
Come have a look and a test drive.
