Re: The Triumph Mayflower.

I want a Standard Eight or Ten now.

Re: EBay Finds

I'd love it but simply not for me as far too many cars and not enough time. I really need to get my existing projects done and on the road.

Re: EBay Finds

A bit more info on Wikipedia here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austin-Healey_Sebring_Sprite Basically I think they're a conversion from a basic mass produced car into more of a race prepared vehicle.

Re: EBay Finds

The structure of design and engineering is very different between my MGB and Midget. The Sprite MK1, MK2 and Midget MK1 had a different rear end quarter elliptic leaf setup which was more in-keeping with race cars of the time. While offering a tighter back end, the travel was reduced. Hence those ea...
