John Sprinzel's Austin Healey Sebring Sprite Coupe 1961

"The only one of the original coupes to have survived intact, and even that has had a new set of alloy panels, the hardtop having been extended into a fastback style by Peter Clarke, its second owner. Now owned by Chris Clegg who has campaigned it for a number of years in historic racing events, it is a very original car. In its day it was owned by Cyril Simson and frequently driven by Paul Hawkins. The car was practiced at Sebring by Stirling Moss although, due to a slipping clutch, he transferred to PMO 200 for the race and his sister Pat then took over S221. During 1994/5 the car was restored by Archers Garage, and they now carry out pre-race preparation of the car for Chris. "
