THE TYPICALLY ENGLISH SPORTS CAR'S WEBSITE

 

The Arkley SS was designed by John Britten in 1969 as a fibreglass front-end and rear-end body conversion to be fitted to the MG Midget or Austin-Healey Sprite. The fibreglass sections were manufactured by the Lenham Motor Company at Harrietsham in Kent and conversions done in John Britten's Arkley Engineering workshop at Arkley in Hertfordshire or they were sold as DIY kits. The retro design was inspired by the Morgan. A performance gain was made from the standard Sprite or Midget through weight reduction and the obligatory wide wheels and tyres. The Arkley SS first appeared at the Specialist Sports Car Show in January 1970.



From September to November 1970, Cars & Car Conversions magazine
serialised the build of an Arkley.
