Rescue this 1959 Bugeye Sprite UPDATE

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.

1960 Bugeye Sprite for sale,”Carmine,” Striking & Supercharged!

We just bought back this amazing Bugeye from our customer in Florida who unfortunately had to sell the car because of an injury. We wish you good healing Jack!

“Carmine” (AN5L 37194), is quite special. We have owned this car two previous times and each time, she steps up another level! The car was already well modified, and before we shipped the car to Florida this year, we added a supercharger, aluminum radiator, alternator conversion, new uprated clutch, new transmission, new grill, new electronic tachometer and a completely rebuilt front end! Few miles have been added since those modifications were installed!

1960 Striking restored Bugeye Sprite for sale, “Gibbs!”

This is “Gibbs,” (AN5L 43622) an excellent Bugeye just painted in a handsome metallic (Chevy) green. The car is restored and quite solid, with the original engine rebuilt and still in place.

This is a a great Bugeye, with a lot of restoration work recently completed. Any rust was removed and new metal was welded in place. The paint is quite nice. It’s all new work. I particularly like the light undercoating applied to the underside and inside of the boot. It’s black, uniform and tidy, making for a nice finished look in the trunk and under the entire car. It’s not gooped up like a lot of undercoat jobs.

The engine is a recently rebuilt 948, mated to a smooth case transmission. The wheels are new minilight-type, and the tires are nearly new too. Brakes are drums all around, with all new hydraulic parts.

We have just gone through the car and upgraded it to rebuilt HS2 carbs, a welcome improvement. We’ve also put in new rear shocks. Compression is 120 in all cylinders and oil pressure is also good. The car is great to drive and good fun!

A nice top is included, as are good side curtains. An electric fuel pump upgrade has also been fit. No tonneau, but we can fit one for the new owner.

The floor coverings could be improved-currently, rubber mat is in place, but we can upgrade the interior for the new owner with new carpet or a new hardura kit is the new owner so desires. Seats are very nice, black with matching green piping. No heater is fit-the car formerly lived down south where one was not needed. We also sell heater kits if the new owner prefers.

This restored car shines brilliantly and is available now for immediate driving fun! Please call or email for more information!

1960 restored and sorted black Bugeye for sale, “Wagner,” with 50+ improvements!

Now sold!!! Thank you, Sharon and company!

This week we are lucky to have “Wagner” back in our inventory. AN5L 45890 is a 1960 Bugeye we completely restored and repainted in 2014 and then sent it to a customer in Florida. He has other collectible cars and didn’t drive it much… just 800 miles in the last three years. Now, he is moving out West, and decided to sell it back to us.

This is a special car and if you are the kind of collector who wants a top-shelf product, this would be a great choice, in striking black with black seats. The subtle red piping accent is a great detail, and the anthracite wheels color-coordinate with the anthracite powder coated cockpit trim and windshield frame. The car looks great and the paint still looks new.

The build-sheet includes about 50 of the best upgrades-a bunch of them are listed here: rebuilt 1275 engine, new rib case transmission, new flamethrower distributor with electronic ignition, completely rebuilt carbs, new seat foams and covers, new carpet, upgraded front disk brakes, front sway bar, new generator, re-cored radiator, electric cooling fan, LED lights, upgraded headlights, locking gas cap, cigarette lighter/phone charger mounted in washer pump hole on dash, new sidecurtains, new top, new tonneau, storage bags for all the weather gear, three-point retractible seat belts, twin-tipped stainless muffler, K and N lifetime air filters, shift knob insert, rubber mats, new generator, leather steering wheel and more! The last owner paid a total of about $39,000 for this car with all the modifications just 800 miles ago (it’s available now for less).

This car is well sorted and a joy to drive. It needs nothing to head to a new home. Or, if you like, we would be delighted to supercharge and put in a five-speed transmission. Go even further and make this into a “Super Sprite,” like Gumby, with head fairing, hard tonneau and additional performance modifications. This car is ready to go as it sits, and we are also happy to take this amazing platform to the next level!

PS-Underside of this car is excellent and it looks great with the new deep red tonneau fit-we will post pictures next week with that in place, and when we can get the car into the air…

Call or email to discuss making this great car your own!
