In 1962 Douglas Wilson-Spratt and Jim McManus produced the first of their special-bodied Sprites to subsequently be called WSMs, now generally known as Wuzzums, using the initials of their two surnames. The immediate interest in the car led to the production of nine cars for owners in the UK, Europe and the USA, with aluminum bodies being constructed by Peel Coachworks. WSM 201 and 203 also had aluminum bonnets while all the other cars had fiber glass ones. Two ultra-lightweight bodies were built in fiber glass by Ray Halsall for Douglas (WSM 206) and club racer Mike White (WSM 205). Three cars were built to GT specification, intended to be comfortable grand touring cars which could be raced at weekends and driven to work on Monday. They were heavier than the Sprint model as they retained more of the original Sprite floorpan/chassis.
