1960 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ An outstanding example with only 2 former keepers. Flawless

Key Facts


Delivered new by Streets of Cheltenham to its first owner on 30th January 1960, finished in Old English White with Bright Red leather and equipped with optional Rev Counter, Tonneau cover, Toughened windscreen and front bumper.

The car was kept until August 1962 and sold to its second owner who used the car regularly until 1976. Circumstances changed and the little Frogeye was parked up in the owner’s garage, unused for 36 years.

In 2012, the current owner purchased the car and subsequently spent six years ensuring it was rebuilt to an exceptional standard, no expense being spared in the process. The pictures paint a thousand words.

A handmade bespoke aluminium bonnet was fitted during the rebuild and cleverly front hinged, providing optimum access to the engine bay. The original 948 cc unit was totally rebuilt and features a Cooper cylinder head and flat faced pistons, power being increased from the standard 47BHP to almost 60BHP. Everything else remains as original asides the addition of a heater and electric windscreen washers for added convenience. The front bumper has also been deleted.

In December 2019, the Frogeye was featured in the Automobile Magazine, titled, ‘Back on the Road’ written by Michael Ware, curator at Beaulieu, Hampshire.

We cannot stress highly enough how beautiful this special car is and will delight its fortunate new owner. A new MOT will be issued prior to delivery.
