The Fun, Affordable Sprite
Created: April 24, 2012
One of the standard modern-day motoring clichés is the desire for a modern-day Sprite – a synonym for an open-topped two-seater that’s cheap to buy and run. When Austin-Healey launched its ‘Frogeye’ Sprite in May 1958 it cost £679, or not much more than a four-door Morris Minor; this really was fun motoring on the cheap.

That story began forty years ago when engineering entrepreneur Rod Quaife acted upon a chance suggestion from Norton motorcycle specialist Ray Petty. It was tempting enough for Rod to change his strategy he was then involved in and began afresh to specialise in motorcycle gearbox design and production. Enthusiasm and skill made good any financial shortcomings in these early days, and soon the new company - known as RT Quaife Engineering Ltd - began producing the first Quaife transmissions that converted four speed Norton gearboxes into five speed units. Motorsport success soon followed, culminating in John Cooper testing at the TT on a Quaife equipped 350 Norton in 1967.

The classic Mini market has shifted in the last couple of years. Not so long ago, the ideal old Mini was a perfect original from the 1960s, but there's a rapidly growing trend towards buying middle-aged cars, retaining or even enhancing the 1960s look while modernising them technically.

The Bugeye Vintage Racer is in the body shop. It is one of those "do it between the others who are on a tighter schedule" jobs so it will be there a while. I get a weekly update. Sometimes it is good news sometimes bad. In all the effort is holding to cost and on schedule. My problem is staying focused.

After getting serious about the restoration effort of the Bugeye Vintage Racer I am truly impressed with the progress. It is now at the point where all of the mechanical parts have been removed and neatly stored. Every suspension bolt and associated hardware have been removed, cleaned and put back on the chassis roller. It is now time for the dreaded “B” word. It is time to start working on the BODY.

We were struck with some spring weather and I was able to get in some shop time. Shop time always takes precedence. However, one evening I dug into my automotive library and found a program from the 1966 Road America June Sprints.
