    Front and center is the BC (before Coil) 1964 Super Stock Dodge owned by John Farkonas and driven by Pat Minick. Chicago’s Grand Spaulding Dodge was the sponsor.

    There are still a few of these out there. Unfortunately, most of them have fallen victim to progress or vandalism.

    I agree, this is definitely a Sprite, a Mk2 (1961-1964) to be exact. The Mk2 Sprite and it's sister car the Mk1 Midget had side curtains and therefore no wing windows of the later cars. All Midgets of the 1960's era had side chrome strips which this car does not. I had a Midget Mk1 as well as a Sprite Mk3 back in the 1960's.

    Sprite Mk1= Bugeye (or Frogeye in GB)
    SpriteMk2 = Midget Mk1 61-64 (side curtains, side spears on Midget, 948cc engine)
    Sprite Mk3 = Midget Mk2 64-66 (roll up windows, side spears on Midget, 1100cc engine)
    Sprite Mk4 66-71 = Midget Mk3 66-74 (side spears gone in 1970, 1275cc engine)
    The progression of Mk's usually came mid year so there were both Mk's made in progression years.
