“Delores,” striking restored 1960 Bugeye Sprite for sale!

img_3618
This is a beautiful, restored, 1960 Bugeye called “Delores”(AN5L 30460). She shows 60,133 miles. Bodywork is all done, a full restoration is now complete and the paint is new in Olde English white. The build is correct and accurate throughout, with stock parts and new radial tires in the correct size. White with red is stunning on these cars and always popular.

Take a look at the interior details–we’ve fit the correct red door check straps, the correct door weather-stripping which is finished off just like it was at the factory, the correct door plugs and even the door linings and door pockets. Seats are new, dash is recovered with leather (original dashboards were vinyl, this is a nice upgrade). The result is a stunning all correct interior.

img_3578This straight and nicely restored car with a ton of new parts, including new drum brakes, all new hydraulics, front sway bar, and a great red tonneau that matches the interior. No top yet, but we can fit one in the same red color as the tonneau.

Engine is the freshly rebuilt 948 stock powerplant and the transmission is a rebuilt correct smooth case stock four-speed model. Oil pressure and power is just like new. Transmission synchronizers are excellent and the car is a joy to drive. We have checked it out thoroughly. Click the engine picture (and any picture) to enlarge it and to see how beautiful everything looks.

Stock look with the best upgrades!

“Sara” is a 1960 Bugeye Sprite in a mostly stock configuration with a 948 engine and drum brakes all around. We sold Sara in 2011 to passionate parents in Virginia, who have generously upgraded the car through their time of ownership. In April of 2014, they hired us for an expensive upgrade… AN5L 23816 got a five speed ford gearbox conversion, new dashboard with all correct gauges and switches and a new leather dash covering (vinyl was the stock cover material). A newly rebuild zero-miles speedometer was installed at that time, which now shows just 543 miles.

Here’s a nice 1960 Bugeye driver that’s ready to enjoy! Come for a drive with me in the new video posted below!

We have just completed a major engine-out service that included a new clutch, new rebuilt transmission and new timing chain and gears, as well as new seals and gaskets. Now the car purrs, and the transmission shifts beautifully!

I recently found this Bugeye in a warehouse, where it was parked year ago, collecting dust and waiting for a new clutch. Now that this work is all done, the car is great to drive and ready for a new home! We’ve also just freshened all systems with new front brakes and wheel cylinders, replaced the radius arm bushings, properly shimmed the steering column, tuned the engine and adjusted the valves, all to prepare the car for the next owner. The car has also been completely rewired to stock specs, the entire wiring harness is also new, an excellent reproduction of the original.

Silver and burgundy is a knock-out color combo and we have brightened it up with a new carpet kit and matching new interior panels, door pockets and a matching ever-flex tonneau. A good black top is also included (a matching new red one is also available) and original side curtains for rebuild are also included.

AN5L 23910 is a very solid car with recently repaired floor panels. The car has a strong 948 engine mated to the rebuilt original smooth case transmission as mentioned above. The flip-forward nose is a nice addition since it makes engine access a delight. We fit nice leather hold down straps. Tires are nearly new radials, another bonus! This week we fit a new fuel tank and pressure tested the fuel sender, so it is ready to go.

This is a great driving stock Bugeye you can enjoy right now, at a very reasonable price! $17,495. Call or email with questions, or if you are ready to take this car home!

Passion for the Preservation of Austin Healey Bugeye Sprites

At Bugeyeguy.com, you can count on us to offer a wide selection of great Bugeyes at prices to suit all budgets. From completely stock to radically modified, we work hard to maintain a great inventory of at least ten great Sprites. We cater to buyers around the world who are looking to get into a turn-key car.

Each of these cars carries with it the passion and care of its former owners. Each car has been further improved in our workshop, where we use our wealth of Bugeye experience to make these cars their very best.

We are crazy about these cars. We love their big personalities, the stories that come with them, the people who have traveled millions of miles in them, and the simple systems that drive them. We are committed to improving these special vehicles and to the mastery of their preservation.

I became addicted to Bugeyes in high school, and in In 1979, I found a Bugeye for sale in the New York Times Sunday Classifieds which I ultimately bought for $1100. “Gumby” was parked on the Street in New Haven, CT, when I found him, in primer gray with weathered turquoise seats. The car is the only thing I still own from 1979. Look what he spawned 33 years ago.

As an anniversary present, Gumby is undergoing his second major restoration, and will be ready next Spring for car shows and club visits.

Our goal is to ignite or rekindle the passion for Bugeyes within you. Please call or email if you would like to give one of these wonderful little cars a new home.
