VEHICLE SOLD: 1967 AUSTIN HEALEY SPRITE MKlll

I want to thank Sam for all his recent help! It was his interest, support and advice that really reassured me, and consequently led me to buy a specific car that he recommended for me.

I was actively searching for the right Sprite, as it needed to be a very special present to mark my 50th birthday, and it was also to be my first classic car purchase!

One cold day in early January, I actually called into Classicwise for the first time to view another fully restored, slightly younger Austin-Healey Sprite, but after explaining to Sam what I was really looking for, he then took me to a local workshop to view an original US imported Sprite. It was destined to reach his sales showroom quite soon, once minor works had been completed. Well it was love at first sight, a true cracker indeed! Consequently, we agreed a deal there and then, for the car to be reserved just for me. Sam proceeded to ensure the car was finished to his high standards, and he got it all ready for my wife to drive it back to our home in Derbyshire. Within 2 weeks from that first viewing date, she arrived in my garage at home.

I feel I have made a good investment, and we will love and cherish this Sprite for many years. I hope she brings us a lot of happiness on our intended trips around the Peak District and beyond..

Maybe it was meant to be, but Sam was the match-maker that made it all happen. Thanks again Sam!
