We are building a long-idle tub into a special Sprite, with the best mods and all the wisdom provided by the 162 Bugeyes that have come before it.
In this video, you can see more pieces going on, as we prepare the car for a rebuilt supercharged 1275 engine and final paint. The rear disk kit takes a lot of time and fabrication to get it all to fit and work on a Bugeye, but we love the end result.
I have also included a second period video circa 1960 about reliability testing at BMC. While no Bugeye is featured, you can see the same stock 948 Bugeye engine put to the test in the featured Morris Minor and Austin A40. Back then, 25,000 miles of engine life was a daring claim! Check it out!
