    Nice ad, John. When I had my bugeye in high school, I'd have to walk through the showroom of the local BMC dealer to get to the parts department to keep the poor thing on the road. There sat a new Mk IV in BRG (along with a Metallic Golden Beige BJ8 with red interior). Boy, did I lust over that Sprite with such creature comforts. Like Mary Ann and Ginger, the Mk IV was potentially within reach, while the big Healey was totally unatainable.

    thanks John. That will be a nice piece to go with my '67 Sprite project. I just wish I was still under $2000 in it.
