I’m a big fan of the work of Steve Hall and his small yet bijou team at Hall’s Garage in Bourne, Lincolnshire. Within their stable sits the Tifosi brand of Austin-Healey Sprite based kits that currently features the Rana, Tifosi SS and Jacobs J.E.M.

A new addition is the range is a Sebring Sprite Fastback or rather a replica of the aluminium-bodied version produced by Robert Peel Sheet Metal Works in Kingston-upon-Thames in the sixties. Why Robert Peel? Well, the company’s founders, Fred Faulkner and Alec Goldie were located by a pub called yep, you’ve guessed it, The Robert Peel!

Anyway, A Sebring Sprite is really a term that denotes either a Sprite with disc brakes or a later version with – as in this case – a fastback body.

Hall’s Garage has made their ‘Peel’ kit available at £1176 although you’ll need to pay an extra £211 for the windscreen and about £200 (tbc) for a rear screen.

Want one? Kits start at £1160
