Original 1959 Austin-Healey Sprite
Not only is the ride featured today an original, it’s completely unrestored. It’s a 1959 Austin-Healey Sprite. Sure, this car isn’t as shiny as it could be, but it’s been in a garage since 1973, so I’d say it looks pretty great all things considered. The owner of this ride called Jay up and offered him the completely preserved car. He accepted and took the opportunity to clean it up and get it running. Under the hood is a 948cc engine, producing about 40-hp. The car in total weighs just under 1500 pounds. Check out this basic beauty, right here.
