• On the latest episode of “Jay Leno’s Garage,” the famed car enthusiast showcased his prized possession, a 1959 Austin-Healey Sprite. Despite the car’s slightly rough appearance, it’s actually in better condition than when it was found after sitting in a garage for half a century. Leno has always preferred original and unrestored vehicles, and this Sprite certainly fits the bill.

The car was owned by a single person, so Leno chose to preserve its authenticity rather than go for a full restoration. His team made necessary repairs, including rebuilding the engine, and cleaned up the car to get it running again. The inline-4 engine may produce only 40 hp, but with less than 1,400 pounds to push, the Sprite is still a zippy little car. By eliminating unnecessary features like roll-up windows, exterior door handles, and a trunk, the Sprite showcases what can be achieved with simplicity and efficiency. For those who wanted more power or luxury in the past, they would have gone for a “big” Healey, like the 100-6.
