Hi Patrick,
    The $1795.00 price shown in magazine advertisements was POE (Port of
Entry).  When I bought 
my Sprite (new) in 1960 in California, the base price was $1830.00,
presumably transportation 
cost added in.
        Added accessories were:
            Heater                    $60.00
            Tachometer          $30.00
            W/Washers           $15.00
            Tonneau                 $25.00   
            Sliding windows    $20.00
            Guards (bumper)   $30.00
            Sales tax                 $60.30   
            License Fee 1960  $24.00
            Total                        $2094.30

I just read this off the original invoice -- yes, I still have it, as well
as the Sprite.
Present value?  Don't know...

I am writing a short article on the Sprite Mk1 that needs to include
original sale price and today's prices.


Would someone know the original sale price when the Bugeye was first
released in the US and where I can find what the cars are currently


Many thanks
