Here’s a wonderful restored 1959 Bugeye we now have for sale called SOLO. It’s an extremely nicely modified car with a five speed datsun transmission conversion, aluminum head, front disk brakes and performance exhaust which blasts a nice note from a rebuilt 1275 power plant. The car was extensively restored by the prior owner, who drove the car just 138 miles before he got sick and sold the car. You get the benefit of thousands of dollars in restoration work that he funded. We have just replaced the master cylinder with an uprated sleeved model and gone through the car (changed transmission oil, for example, and run the car through our extensive check list) to make sure it’s ready for the next owner. Most of the restoration work was done in 2005.
The car also boasts a 3.7 rear end which, coupled to the overdrive five speed installed, makes this car a great highway cruiser for anyone looking to include freeways and interstates in their Bugeye experience. New chrome wire wheels give this car a striking and very popular look.
An impressive stack of receipts come with the car, detailing $19,710 spent at British Specialities in Stockton alone, who rebuilt the engine, rebuilt the transmission, rebuilt the front end, set up the car for wire wheels and installed disk brakes and air horn and rebuilt the gauges, Dozens of other components were also replaced, like the starter and generator. That 20k investment doesn’t include the excellent paint job and beautiful interior with custom buckskin dash cover and wood steering wheel and shift knob.
The car has a matching tonneau and custom fabric security panel that blocks off the trunk from prying eyes. It’s well executed and unsnaps to allow access to the plush boot with matching custom carpet.
The car is very clean and virtually like-new. It does have one small ding on the top of the nose in front of the windshield wipers, it looks like someone closed the bonnet on something that made this small dent. Otherwise, the car is rust free, dent-free, well-sorted and ready for a new home!
