Ted- I absolutely love your car and if I didn't have my 69 DHC in French Blue with a fair amount of work put into it I would have bought it from you already without hesitation at your asking price. What a great chance to get an original Sprint in great running condition and with lovely patina. Serious buyers should be all over this car. Actually you should just keep it for yourself if you can! I could use Don Butler at Union Jacks for a few things on my car as well!

Cheers, Mark Whitaker

How stupid they are. Good drivers over shiny garage queens every time for me. 200,000 miles and counting on mine. D

Hi Ted, I have your Sprint's twin! Have followed your car for some time and finally check the build # on mine!?! Mine is same color and about same miles, mine doesn't have a roll bar and has dealer installed Minilite knock off wheels it also has tubular headers (dealer installed? or maybe all Sprints were built that way?? Mine still has Rotoflex axle joints. The serial number on mine is #0296K I bought it from original owner in 1980. He had bought it new when he finished college in N.Y. and then moved to Idaho to teach school. Mine has been parked for awhile and is waiting for me to recommission it. They are wonderful cars!!!

I find this interesting and just thought I'd throw that out!?!

Mike
