Now available in Australia,
any Austin Healey MkII, MkIII or MG Midget can be easily converted to a classic bug-eye / frog-eye sprite.
This is an easy conversion as they all have the same base body and floorplan structure.
1958 - 1960 MkI sprites (Bug Eye / Frog Eye) can also use the kits for a re-body.
Terry N. Toomey - Automotive Engineering Consultant; Trading as Tandem Chassis Developments has been appointed as the Tifosi Rana - Austin Healey Bug-Eye / Frog-Eye replica conversion kit distributor for Australia.
Tifosi Rana from the UK has real heritage to express an element of their own engineering craftmanship in the finished artworks.
The kit utilises the donor vehicle of a MkII, MkIII Austin Healey Sprite OR MG Midget components & therefore the Tifoni Rana kit successfully retains a significant amount of the originals character & appeal which has it's roots directly back to the original Austin Healey Bug-eye / Frog-eye Sprite. Apart from a rear spring up-grade & front brake changes, no changes were made to it's monocoque contruction throughout the entire production run.
The model retains it's style and appeal to mainly a mix of gentlemen and a growing number of younger lasses who have discovered it's retro style. In fact we don't know a single women who is not aroused by the marque nor a married one either.
Like a custom Triumph Motor Cycle or Custom Harley... Your bug eye may retain and grow in value as this is one hell of a desired vehicle.
