1974 MGB GT for sale- One of the best values in classic cars today!

I just love the MGB GT. I have one in my little collection… the hatchback allows me to carry my bicycle in the back and the car looks like a baby Aston Martin, for several hundred thousand dollars less. These cars remain one of the best values in collectible cars ever. These chrome bumper cars still look very vintage, and they will elevate just about anyone’s image. You can have this well-sorted example for just $12,995.

This particular car is just about perfect in my book. The rust has been cut out, new metal was welded in place, the car has been repainted in the correct color, the seats were replaced with new leather ones and the steering wheel is uprated. The dash is excellent. The whole car is excellent. The air filters are improved lifetime K and N brand and the car runs nicely. Tube shocks are present in the back. There is a large file of receipts for work done by others.

It’s ready to drive anywhere.

The car sports its original 1800 engine and four speed fully synchronized transmission. A single 12 volt battery has been fit in one of the lockers to replace the six volt batteries that would have come with the car.( a common upgrade). Stainless steel exhaust has been fit, as have new front springs, poly bushings and (I believe) a slightly larger sway bar because the handling is great. Headlight relays have also been fit, a great electrical system upgrade.

The interior is quite nice, I will get more photos next week in better light to showcase the condition.

1974 was the last year for chrome bumpers, in fact, late ’74 cars were changed completely to the taller rubber bumper style (or lack thereof).

It is not immaculate, the car has been driven… it is not a recent rotisserie restoration. Instead it’s a solid car that looks great and that you could make your daily driver and actually get where you are going. This is the one car I would own if I wanted an inexpensive sports car I had to live with day in and day out. Shows 32,045 miles on the clock.

Great value, shade from the sun and tons of fun! Click “read more” to see the photo album! [Read more…]

1978 911 SC Targa for sale with 65k miles!


So many British car owners we meet confess they also love air-cooled 911s. I was lucky to have a dad who loved these cars, so I love them too and I’m always on the lookout for good ones. I bought this car as part of a larger collection, and I have been holding this 1978 911SC for about four years in my own small collection but I am not using it and it’s time to send it to a new home.

This car is unspoiled and feels like a time capsule. Everything is as it was when it left the factory, except the steering wheel, which is a very nice and high-quality “Dino” brand replacement. Coco mats help evoke the spirit of the era, as does the distinctive and simple mechanical targa top. By the way, have you seen the current 911 targa tops in operation? The entire rear window lifts up automatically and a motorized assemblage of levers and arms moves the top into the back of the car. It’s an engineering marvel, and I shudder to think of the repair costs down the road.

This is not that.

This is a top removed by flipping two levers. The top assembly easily collapses to fit in the trunk. Simple. From another era.

In fact, the window mechanism is also simple, this is a wind-up window car without factory A/C. In the engine bay you can see the air pump bracket, which we removed when we last serviced the car, because it was in the way and no longer connected anyway. I have saved all the pieces in a box to travel with the car.

Included are the two factory sales brochures from 1978, which verify the accuracy of this example (see photo album below). When you get into this car, the factory shag carpet and colors stand out because this seems nothing like modern automotive color palettes. When did you last see a dark brown car? For me, that’s what makes this car particularly special.

Turn the key and iconic round warning lights come to life. (These are the same lights I would see in the ’69 911S my dad once owned- this car gets you that look and feel without breaking the bank). I have a 1997 993 as well, and that car’s square warning lights (and there are a lot of them) just don’t as beautifully convey the soul of a 911. This dashboard is much more reminiscent of the older cars, which is one reason I love this vintage so much–more affordable, but still with the heritage and feel of the early 911s.

This car certainly seems to have spent much of it’s life garaged, the dashboard and gauges are great, they are not sun-faded or worn and there are no cracks in the dashboard. Thus the car looks much it would have in 1978. The interior is excellent.

The car comes with a notebook full of receipts and information from the prior owner, including the Porsche COA as shown. It was repainted once and shines beautifully. Everything works (except the horn) and it’s a blast to drive. The transmission is excellent, with no complaints from the synchros and the gearbox is a joy, with easy downshifting.

We have done a bit of maintenance on this car during my four years of ownership. We added a new premium Deka battery two years ago. We changed one rear wheel bearing and rebuilt both front calipers. We adjusted the valves, put in new gaskets, changed the injectors, air filter, plugs, wires, cap and rotor, as well as the oil, which has few miles on it since. New tires will be mounted this coming week.

This car has the original engine, as verified by the pictured Porsche COA (see photos below). The timing chain tensioners were upgraded by the former owner about ten years ago. Receipts are included.

The car is a blast to drive! $34,995. Click “more” to see photo album! [Read more…]

Bugeyeguy-Ten Year Anniversary Celebration-Sale!

Wow, what a fast-paced ride!


We never imagined when we started Bugeyeguy in 2007 that we would sell 207 Bugeyes in the next ten years (which we believe to be more than anyone has ever sold). Or that we would become a national service center with cars coming to us from all over the country for upgrades and modifications. Or that we would build Caitlyn Jenner’s Bugeye, perhaps the most publicized Sprite in modern times. Our national gold concours car was perhaps the most difficult and fulfilling project. Fuel injected cars have broadened our skills. Custom leather work and stitching is now routine in our Quonset hut loft. Our catalog provides a great resource for brand new and long-time Bugeye owners worldwide. Our YouTube videos have been viewed almost two million times.

Thank you!

It has been a great adventure. And we are excited about what lies ahead.
Our new foundation for our back yard addition is finished. Soon our new building will be erected and we will have more space to be of service. Let’s celebrate with some great deals on a few of the classics we have in stock:

NOW SOLD for $15,495! Congratulations Tom! We’ll be sending this one to San Diego! 1973 Triumph TR6-I’ve further reduced the price of this great Triumph -This is a killer deal on a car that has had thousands spent by the last owner, from new interior pieces to a brand new clutch, you can’t go wrong with this classic car that never goes out of style

1969 MGC-Price reduced to $29,995… It’s rare that I sell cars from my personal collection-remember, this is a car that I kept for four years because it is such a rare find in terms of rarity, uniqueness, originality, condition and color combination! I have the chance to keep lots of cars, and only hold the best of the best. This is one of those examples, which I am selling to make space as we transition into our new facility. Someone is going to get a great deal on a very interesting classic car, with roll-up windows and overdrive!

NOW SOLD and heading to Virginia, Congratulations Dave! 1963 Austin Healey Sprite-Price reduced to $4,995. Another killer deal-this is a complete kit with all the hard body work and rust repair complete. Thousands were spent upgrading the front brakes to disk and laying-on an excellent paint job. This is a fun project ready to ship. If you are looking for a mechanical assembly project, this is worth serious consideration, with all the dirty grinding, sanding and bodywork already done, and done well!

1971 Volvo 1800E-Price reduced to $16,495. Click to enlarge the new photo at left-no scratches or dings, very shiny, strong paint work. I never get tired of looking at the unique shape of the 1800, I love the rear fins and the lines of this car. There’s nothing quite like it anywhere on the road. This is a lot of classic for the money. It runs beautifully with fuel injection, the overdrive works every time and this car looks fantastic in British Racing Green. I am seeing great sale numbers on these cars in the marketplace but more importantly, I can’t believe the market for these will ever go down, so here’s a chance to own a very interesting car with minimal (if any) downside, and great potential upside.

Call if you want to take one of these home! We can help ship any car right to your door!

1952 MGTD for sale, no malware!

Our website just took a full sick day due to malware. As I reflect this unexpected intrusion, my mind wanders to the white 1952 MGTD we have just revived (seen at left in an alternate universe), which seems the appropriate antidote to a stressful day fending off invasive bots. If you are reading this, it means the humans I contracted (with their team of helpful bots) have successfully reactivated our website, for a fee perhaps about equal to the MSRP of a new MGTD in 1952.

Why is the MGTD relevant in this age of servers and web hosts? This car is very basic. So basic, in fact, that one feels in a TD like they are riding a horse (that’s a complement) because life in this car becomes very simple. The ride is smooth, while not plush. The entire experience is well-damped by a wood and steel structure. 57 Horsepower seems just fine to me as malicious code invades my database and root files (whatever they are). All I really want to do right now is emerge from the mist on the moors with perfect patina. I love technology and the web and our modern computing power makes our business possible. But TD motoring remains a precious reminder of something that we once were.

This white TD pictured here last rolled under its own power when Hip Hop was not even a glint in the eye of Disco, and the former owner might have been heard humming Bee Gees riffs (“Stayin Alive, Stayin Alive?”) as his bell bottoms hustled the pedals of these wooden floor boards, last in 1982. We rescued this car out of its 35 year slumber for a new owner in Maryland and the car is now just about ready to depart for its new home.


To be fair, this car did have some malware of it’s own under the bonnet after our mechanical restoration… in the photo above you can see Russ scanning the fuel filter and purging all the malicious crud that populated this car’s memory, that is to say, there was still a little residual junk in the tank after we removed, boiled, blasted, soaked and cleaned the 35 years of debris out of the fuel tank. We apparently left just one fuel filter full of nastiness in the tank, which promptly filled the filter and shut off the car, which might have ruined my nice motoring experience were it not for Shawn, the 12-year old who lives up the street, who was happy to push me back to the shop. “Just like pushing the blocking sled at football practice,” he said.

And so with a new fuel filter now installed, the TD is ready, waiting only for the new steering wheel to arrive to replace the wire hoop that is all we have left of the original wheel.

If you like this sort of thing, we are selling another 1952 MGTD, this one a green in nicer cosmetic shape, fully restored about ten years ago. I owned this green TD twice before, and sold it to two different great customers who loved and respected this car. Scott has asked me to sell it for him now on consignment. You can see it in an older post linked here. The car still looks identical to what you see in the photos and videos, as it has only spent most of intervening time nestled in Scott’s very nice garage in Rhode Island.

It’s an excellent, capable and sorted TD we are selling for $22,995, so you too can enjoy next time your (bug)iPhone seizes, your antivirus software is out of date and tech support for your devices means a conversation with someone halfway around the world who you would love to talk with to hear about life in a foreign land, but when it comes to fixing your phone or television, somehow something just seems missing.

MGTDs are here to fix all that…
