1960 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite for sale, freshly painted driver!

Now sold! Way to go, Joel (who already has two other Bugeyes)!!! Heading to Indiana soon!

Here’s a nicely re-painted driving Bugeye with new carpet for a very reasonable price–just $13,900. She looks great!

This is a AN5L 27458, a car we call “Whistler.” Body numbers and engine numbers are all correct. This is the original engine. She has mostly stock running gear, with a 948 engine fit with larger HS2 carburetors, smooth case transmission and drum brakes all around. The car was painted about 15 years ago, and has sat ever since in a heated garage. We’ve made it a driver once again and have put in new front shocks and a new master cylinder. We cleaned out the fuel system and now the car runs and drives nicely.

There is more sorting to do… the seats need rebuilding-we have provided seat cores that can be stripped and recovered with the correct mark 1 covers (which we sell in our catalog) – and the floors have some rust-through that the new owner may want to address. But the car is nicely painted in Olde English White and the all the bodywork is done. We are offering the car as it sits now for a very reasonable price, for someone looking for a driving project car they can complete at their leisure. We have put in new carpet throughout (including the trunk floor). We have also put in new door pockets and the doors are already lined. A new panel kit is still needed.

The car comes with side curtains for restoration and no top or tonneau. All the correct fittings are in place for a new short tonneau, which we can fit to the car if the new owner so desires.

Drive this car today and finish the restoration at your leisure! It’s a manageable project at a very reasonable price.

Rescue this 1959 Bugeye Sprite UPDATE


NOW SOLD AND HEADING TO VIRGINIA! Congratulations, Kevin!

UPDATE: To all the people who have inquired about this car, please look at the new pictures and contact me again if you are interested! I’ve now purchased this Bugeye so we can more easily get it to a new home. The car has much more potential than previously thought, although it will still need a complete restoration. I have more history about the car and new pictures below. If you are looking for a project and can help rescue this car, check this out!

This is AN5L 13292, a Leaf green Bugeye built in 1959 and still wearing the original paint. The car has had the same owner in California since 1969! In about 1985 the crankshaft broke and the car was parked under a California carport for about 15 years. That owner moved the car to Colorado in about 2000, where it has sat ever since. It has been outside for these last 17 years, although in a very dry climate, and it shows. The rocker panels and fender bottoms are remarkably solid for a car that has been sitting outside. The dry California climate coupled with the dry weather in SW Colorado have helped make this car a restoration candidate. Let’s get this one back on the road!

The engine block is sitting on the passenger floor of the car. The prior owner thought the floors were still OK, but you should presume new floors will be needed (we have the panels for sale in our catalog). That said, take a look at the photos of the rear spring mounts–this area of the wheel well looks quite nice! So plan on a complete restoration, and let’s hope the new owner is pleasantly surprised to find this car to be an easier project than some of the rusty cars we have seen restored. The battery tray will need to be replaced (we also sell those) but this is not too difficult to weld into place.

1960 Restored Bugeye Sprite for sale, “Palmer,” stock and sorted!


NOW SOLD TO SEAN of San Diego, CONGRATULATIONS!

We’ve been holding Palmer for a client who wanted to purchase the car a month or so back, but a back injury will keep him sidelined for a while longer, so we are making the car available once again. This is an excellent choice for anyone who doesn’t want to hassle with a project, no matter what the prior owner reports. We have gone through this car and it works! Recently added– new seat base metal trays and seat foams. Seats are nice and plush!

This is a really nice and well-sorted Frogeye. The car is very clean, with a strong 948 engine and upgraded front disk brakes. Anyone looking for a solid Bugeye with stock specs will appreciate this handsome example. Thousands have been spent this year to sort and refresh any weak areas, and to make this car ready for summer driving fun.

We first met “Palmer,” a 1960 Bugeye AN5L 27237, in December of 2016, when we were called upon to fully sort out this new acquisition for a Florida-based owner. He spent thousands in our shop to make the car right. We went through every system, and corrected any run-quality, braking, fuel system and cosmetic issues. We also fit a new red top and tonneau. When he offered to sell the car this Spring, I jumped on the opportunity to have a car we knew was filtered through our shop. Someone is going to get a great fully-fettled Bugeye.

The car drives quite nicely. The engine shows great oil pressure and sounds great. The interior is excellent. It’s fun! Click “more” below to see the photo album!

Fresh rotisserie restoration- five speed 1275 Bugeye Sprite for sale, tons of upgrades!


Now sold and heading to Arkansas! Congratulations Amy and Brant!

This 1959 Sprite (AN5L 18190) is one lucky car. It has been completely stripped and restored on a rotisserie and will probably outlive us all. Ever square inch has been renewed, all parts are replaced, it has all the right upgrades, and it is now ready for a new home. Kelly was the builder, and I am delighted to acknowledge a whole lot of hard work that went into a long and costly project by naming the car after him. Thank you Kelly!

You can see in the build pictures that the car underwent countless hours of prep before paint, and it shows. The lines are clean and straight and the car shines wonderfully.

The build included many exceptional upgrades, like a wonderful and quick 1275 engine with a great hotter cam and new carburetors, five speed fully synchronized Datsun transmission with overdrive, front disk brakes and sway bar, electronic ignition in a new distributor, thermostatically operated electric cooling fan, brighter Hella headlights with upgraded relays, new premium interstate battery, uprated gear reduction starter, new interior, nice stereo with speakers mounted in the boot and an accurate dashboard display of switches and gauges. New premium door pockets-we replaced the busy ones that came with the car. New seat components. New windshield to body gasket and all rubber is brand new throughout. Tires are slightly wider 175/70 for better handling and braking and new, as are the alloy wheels.

We have gone through the car and finished the restoration, and now the car is ready for a new home. Just 63 miles show on the clock. For Kelly, the fun was in the build, and he has moved on to the next project.

A non retractible three point shoulder seat belt set is fit, which I would change for our inertia reel set up before the current seat belt flips out and hits the stunning rocker panels. That’s why I love the retracts, they are less apt to chip the paint.

Exhaust is a nice stainless steel new system, fed by an nice header up front. Lifetime K & N air filters are also fit. Radiator core has been upgraded to modern specs for better cooling.

The paint, incidentally, is base clear great work, with painted on stripes that have been cleared over, so they are a part of the finish. All very well executed. You can see the nice finish in the A pilar area as shown below.

A passable top is included (see picture) but it is not up to the caliber of the rest of the car. We can fit a new one if the new owner so-desires. Original side curtains are also included, but they too will need restoration, or we can provide new ones. The tonneau is new, and fits nicely.

This is a turnkey Bugeye, the recipient of thousands of dollars of new parts and hundreds of loving restoration hours. It’s an excellent final product. We can further upgrade the car with a supercharger and more (ala Gumby). Or use it as is.

R&T 1959 Restored black plate Bugeye Sprite for sale

NOW SOLD! We are excited to announce that this car is now sold to Kim Reynolds, who owned this car in the early 80s while starting his journalism career at Road & Track Magazine. You can follow Kim’s writings now at Motor Trend, where we hope to read about this car as Kim continues to drive and test cars around the world!

This 1959 Austin Healey Sprite is #AN5L 8620. We call it “RT.” It’s a California car that was owned by several Road and Track staffers including road test editor Kim Reynolds in the 80s (Reynolds is now writing for Motor Trend). It was then purchased by R&T art director Richard Baron (who now art directs Panorama Magazine for the Porsche Club of America, among other things). Bugeye Sprite references are recurring in Road & Track even today, and of course in many Peter Egan pieces, so this car has an interesting history, and it certainly left it’s (oil stained) mark on a magazine that inspired so many of us to ultimately become the car collectors of today.

The car moved East in 1998, where it was restored completely, and purchased in about 2000 by a fellow in Pennsylvania with a very large car collection, and the car has pretty much sat in his heated warehouse ever since. We have acquired the car recently and run through it to get it on the road again. As you can see from the photos, it’s a very solid little Bugeye, very clean, with a nice 1275 engine with better HS2 carbs and a tight transmission with great synchros. The car shows 47,981 miles. I would bet it has driven less than 500 miles since its rotisserie restoration.

The engine compartment and underside are very clean. There is no rust. The interior is new and the dashboard is correct, with all the right dials and switches. The car was repainted when restored in Speedwell Blue, an original Healey color (lighter than iris blue). It’s not a perfect restoration, but it’s really nice– and you can drive it anywhere. There is no top or top bow, but we have just fit a new ever flex deluxe blue tonneau, which looks great. We can provide a new blue top is the new owner so desires.

Check out the pictures–this is a good one, someone spent a lot of money on this restoration, and it’s a car with a great history that will give the new owner years of great Bugeye fun.

Call if you would like to have us deliver this car to your door.

Sweet 1959 Austin Healey Bugeyed Sprite for sale!

This is “Yuri,” a 1959 Sprite ready for you to enjoy. He has a brand new fiberglass front bonnet, which fits better than the steel one we replaced. The finish is excellent and the car looks quite sharp. We fixed the driver floor pan and put in am entire new passenger floor pan as well, and new dashboard, as well as all the correct switches and gauges. This is a sharp car and it’s attractively priced at $19,995.

The car has a strong 1098 engine from a later Sprite and drum brakes that we have been fully serviced to refresh it for the new owner. The tonneau is workable, but could be replaced. There is no top, but we can easily fit one for the new owner.

This car was owned by the prior in Florida for about 35 years. He had a minor fender bender with the car and traded it for another Bugeye we were selling. Damage was minor, confined to the front of the nose. We removed the dented nose, put on the new fiberglass one you see here, and refreshed the rest of the car for its next owner. The result is excellent, a very nice shiny driver at a reasonable price.
