Striking 1955 Austin Healey 100, former Concours competitor

img_3067
NOW SOLD! Thank you David from New York, and congratulations! I will miss this car!

This is my personal 1955 100 and a great car ready for a new owner. I purchased it in 2011 with the intention of keeping it forever, I love these cars that much… but I am not using it and it’s time for this classic to go to a new home. In my time of ownership, I have made it better, with the addition of electronic ignition and a sleeved rebuilt brake master cylinder, to improve reliability of the brakes and engine. We have serviced everything else, including brake wheel cylinders and oil, as needed. I have exercised it regularly but used it very little. It it was prepared for national concours events so it is quite well detailed and accurate. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Restored 1968 Morris Mini Cooper S, now SOLD!


I’ve been using this wonderful Cooper for errands and it’s exceptionally fast, great fun and ready for a new home! This Mini will smoke any stock 1275 Bugeye. It’s that quick!

This is a Mark 2 Mini with a Cooper S engine. We got the car from a restorer in Kentucky, freshly painted in a non-stock but stunning metallic royal blue with all the floor and trunk welding complete. It’s completely rust free. We assembled the car and completed the restoration. The interior is really nice and the new two-stage paint shines beautifully!

Most importantly, this car screams! Header and 1.5 inch (larger) twin SU carbs are fit, and the car pulls very nicely. Idle is smooth, this is a very street-friendly car that’s quite user-friendly and easy to drive. Front disk brakes stop the car extremely well. This one puts a smile on my face with every shift! This is a very clean and quick Mini that’s tons of fun.

Recent 145 sr 10 Khumho tires are fit, with surprisingly good grip and a very correct look. Oil pressure and temperature is excellent-I have posted a picture that shows great oil pressure at about 55 MPH/3000 RPM with a warm engine, and the temperature right where you want to see it. The 1275s engine is very strong. A fully synchronized four-speed transmission (1968 would be the first year for a fully synchronized gearbox) is also a dream, with great synchros and smooth shifting. Hydraulics are all new. Ride quality is quite nice on an original hydrolastic system.

This is stunner and a whole lot of vintage Mini fun for $21,995. Call 203-561-6929 or email for more details!

Wonderful restored and certified 1965 Sunbeam Tiger! NOW SOLD!

IMG_1003

Sold to Phil in Texas! Congratulations Phil!

This is one of my personal cars.

It’s the only V8 I ever owned, and because of the raw power and heritage of these wonderful cars, I thought I might keep it forever. In reality, I have had this car for about two years and driven it only about 100 miles. So it’s time to let it go to someone who will give it some exercise. Besides, I need more space.

This is a 1965 Mark 1 Tiger, B9471169LRXFE with engine 2208 K22KA, certified as a genuine Tiger in 2013 by the Sunbeam Tiger Owner’s Association. The car was originally delivered in PA but has lived in Las Vegas since the 70s per the stack of receipts that come with the car, which would explain why the car is so rust free. According to the receipts, the correct 260 V8 engine was rebuilt in 1986 and then a $22,000 restoration and re-spray was undertaken in 2012, when the car was shipped from Vegas to Dale’s Restorations in San Bernadino, CA. (Dale’s Restorations is a Tiger specialist.) These receipts detail a complete engine out repaint and many new parts. Indicated mileage is 81,376.

About 7000 Mark 1 Tigers were built. Come for a drive in the video below!

It’s a very strong car with quite a long list of new and restored parts. The prior owner put in a new dashboard, which looks great. We put in a Pertronix electronic ignition and had the tachometer converted to accommodate this upgrade, and now it works flawlessly. We also changed the rear axle pinion seal to stop a small leak. We also changed the rear brake hose. Nothing else was needed and the car drives wonderfully.

The car looks fantastic and is not so perfect that you can’t drive and enjoy it. It’s a blast to drive, with plenty of V8 grunt and great handling. The original hardtop is a nice bonus, and I used the car on cooler Spring and Fall days feeling quite happy to have such a nice lid.

There is a nearly new soft top mounted and stowed in the rear compartment. I’ve added photos of the top being erected. All the original top frame rails and components are present and in good shape. Oddly, the front hold down latches are missing, and need to be simply screwed to the header bow (the holes and threads are good and already in place). The window is in very good shape, and once the latches are installed, this top will pull down nicely. The tonneau is not new but very nice too.

The most elegant MGA in the world– amazing restored car, NOW SOLD!!

IMG_0848

THIS CAR IS NOW SOLD!

I love MGAs. Have two in my collection, a 58 coupe and a 62 Mk2. We have owned and sold many of them.

I bought this 1958 MGA because I thought I might want to keep it, but the truth is I barely drive the cars that I have, so I am reluctantly offering this car for sale for someone who will use it. This one is the product of a masterful and obsessive owner who improved the car in every way. Call it a resto mod if you like, but I would say this is just a pure MGA made into an ultimate driving machine. It has multiple impressive upgrades to make this car both visually spectacular and a delight to drive, courtesy of disk brakes in front, supercharger, Ford five speed conversion, lower rear end ratio and many more modifications.

The colors, while non stock, is exceptionally elegant, and based on the reactions I have witnessed out on the street, Champagne is the perfect color for an MGA. People go nuts when they see this car.
Most of the colors of the era were without metallic, and perhaps a bit flat. Take your average Olde English White MGA, for example, and while elegant, the paint is often somewhat milky. This car is vibrant and alive, much more to modern standards. The elegant MGA form is dramatically enhanced by this elegant color… and the result is outstanding.

IMG_0847

The rebuilt 1800 MGB five main bearing engine is excellent, and it benefits from an Eaton modern supercharger and new HS6 SU carburetor. Power is excellent, even though boost is low to keep engine longevity in mind. The exhaust is an upgraded stainless Flowmaster system, quiet but with a deep roar. The five speed ford gear box is a delight in every way. The ratios feel right, first gear is fully synchronized, the overdrive is dreamy.

There are quite a few other wonderful touches as evidence of the commitment of the builder to build the ultimate MGA. For example, he fit a custom cockpit wind block screen for the back edge of the cockpit, to reduce wind noise. It’s an exceptional custom build, that is artfully integrated with the edge of the cockpit so it looks like it belongs. The head pillows on this wind blocker match the interior perfectly. The steering wheel is custom wrapped in matching leather. The underside of the trunk lid is artfully covered with carpet, to simply make a nicer finished product. The hood/top is matching stay fast deluxe material, as are the amazing side curtains, works of art by themselves. A back up electric fuel pump is fit, with a switch behind the seat in case it is needed. Two twelve volt battery are fit (instead of the stock twin 6 volts to make 12) for a more robust electrical system. The list goes on, but unlike a lot of “improved” British cars, this one is simply done right. Click “Read More” to see video and pictures.

2005 Lotus Elise auction ends Weds June 1!

We’ve got this beautiful Elise up for auction online with good bidding climbing upward.
Check it out for sale on Bring a Trailer.  
The auction ends on June, 1, so if you’re interested, don’t delay!

Here’s a car that handles like nothing else on the road.

This 2005 Lotus Elise was bought new in Texas on July 25th 2004. We know this because the first owner kept a log book, which the subsequent two owners have also used to log all the maintenance. The log book is immaculate, and the car was loved and cared-for in the very same way. This is a wonderful example that shows as new. We cannot find any stone chips or signs of damage anywhere on the car. The car was sold with Starshield, an impressive clear bra system that came with the car. It has also never done any track days (many of these end up doing more track miles than road miles).

Colin Chapman, the founder of Lotus, is often quoted as saying; “Power makes you faster in the straights. Subtracting weight makes you faster everywhere.” The Elise carries on the founders mentality. While it may only have 190 horsepower, when you combine that with a 1900 lb curb weight and a superbly balanced chassis you end up with one of the quickest cars money can buy. The perfectly balanced mid-mounted Toyota motor ties a purpose built sports car with Japanese reliability.

The black powder-coated wheels were installed in December of 2014, less than 4,000 miles ago, a modification which really pops with the orange paint. With just around 20,000 miles and meticulous service records, this wonderful example is quite special and unmolested.

The car is primarily stock. A few tasteful upgrades have been added, such as the wheels mentioned above, rear spoiler, upgraded mirrors and later rear quarter vents. The prior owner preferred the look of these later black side vents and updated them. The key fob immobilizer and alarm has also be immobilized and now the remote only operates the central locks. I personally think this is a fantastic upgrade, as those immobilizers are annoying. I’m glad this one is gone. The flashing light you see on the dashboard in the video is meant to look like an alarm when the car is parked.

The car comes with Lotus trickle charger, sun visors and factory literature that came with the car as well as a factory service manual.

This is something a little different from us here at Bugeyeguy, but a sportscar that any enthusiast should consider. Check out all the pictures and the video below and don’t hesitate to email if you have any questions, and call or email for pricing!
