Description:keywords: description: CLASSIC SEBRING SPRITE REPLICA BUILD Home Strip Down Rebuild Plans Rebuild Starts Links Sebrings For Sale Articles Photo Gallery contact Rebuild Blog Untitled Hello and welcome to my restoration and rebuild of a 1963 Austin Healey Sprite. I plan to rebuild it into a Sebring Fastback Sprite replica as built by the great John Sprinzel.
I had heard about the car while talking to afriend about classic cars. He said he knew of an old Healey in a garage, and with a bit of investigating I was on the trail, and finally got the car back home in September 2012.
I have managed to get hold of a 1959 Frogeye which i am going to use as the basis for the Sebring build instead of the "63" Sprite,mainly because its a Mk1 and it was a "1 Lady owner car" with every bit of history with it including correspondence from Donald Healey Motor Co. 1959 1 lady owner

Thomas Frohn has built this superb Sebring Coup from an accident-damaged Frogeye which he bought for parts in 1994. Painted Porsche Mint Green and registered for the road as a 1961 car with a 1275cc engine, it has an 8-port cylinder head, twin Weber carburettors, and a Toyota 5-speed gearbox.
