When Bill Prout bought this Sprite it had been a race car its entire life. He painstakingly converted it to a Sebring Sprite, by locating a rare Williams and Pritchard hardtops and then this year changing the nose to a Sebring model. He has raced the car every year as the transformation has unfolded. This year we also installed a 1275 race engine, five speed Ford conversion and rear disk brakes.
Here are some pictures of the original nose, the raw fiberglass replacement and then the painted Sebring version in the paddock at Lime Rock this weekend, where Bill is qualifying for the fall festival vintage races as we write this. Good luck Bill!
