Great 1959 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite driver for sale

Now sold and heading to Phoenix! Congratulations Jeff and Dena!

This Bugeye is a black runner and looks great. We’ve just done a major service on the car, and it’s now ready for a new home. Price is $16,995.

We call AN5L/8136 “Becky.” She has a strong 948 engine and drum brakes that have been fully restored just this week in our shop, along with a new master and slave cylinder too. The car looks quite racy with roll bar, flip-up Aston fuel cap and mini light wheels. The racing stripes are vinyl (and removable if you don’t like them–we think they look quite nice). They are well-executed without blisters or peeling. It’s a nice looking shiny package and great fun to drive.


We have also replaced the front shocks, aligned the front end, replaced the combination oil pressure and termperature gauge, heater valve and anything else needed to prepare the car for a new home.


The car has lived in Connecticut for the past 15 years with a local owner. He installed the solid state electric fuel pump, spin-on oil filter conversion, exhaust header, leather steering wheel and stereo, all nice upgrades. The car comes with a good used top and side curtains. There is no tonneau, but we would be happy to make one for the new owner.

The yellow roll bar is optional and would look better painted black (or white) with the velcro strips removed, but we figured we would wait to see if the new owner even wants a roll bar in the car at all. While the paint on the car shines very nicely, there are some imperfections in the paint.

The “A” pillars have some blisters, which didn’t stop the last owner from enjoying the car one bit. Hinge mounts (as shown) are in nice shape, which means any patches installed would be confined to lower outer “A” pillar skin. Most people would leave it as is, because the car has an impressive appearance, shines nicely and is offered at a great price. The underside is very solid.

We have other cars (priced higher) with better cosmetic details-just ask and we can recommend a car based on your budget and taste.Give a call is you would like to take Becky (or one of our other cars) home!

Great 1959 Bugeye Sprite for sale-Shiny driver!

Now sold and heading to Maryland! Congratulations Matt!!!

“Marco” (AN5L 15432) is a 1959 Bugeye and a very nice Sprite that feels just right, with an exceptionally shiny paint job on a very straight and unmolested body. I purchased this car from a friend who has collected Bugeyes all his life. He has had this car for more than 20 years and had it painted about five years ago. The car shines beautifully. He had four Bugeyes when I met him, and none of them were used very much, so this car has been mostly sitting for the past 20 or more years.

Marco is fit with a 1275 engine and HS2 carbs, with a larger throat than the original H1 carbs that would come with a 948 engine. The 1275 is quick and the car is a joy to drive. Brakes are drum all around, and stop the car nicely.

We’ve just lowered the rear with our shim kit to make the car look level and we have also fit our ignition guillotine to better secure the ignition switch to the dashboard. Great lifetime K&N air filter elements are also fit in the stock air filter housings. We refreshed the brakes and replaced the rear flexible brake line.


Marco’s restoration is not brand new, and it doesn’t need to be. You might say this car looks like a much more expensive freshly restored car, without the extra cost–it’s an extremely nice driver. We’ve put in brand new carpet and panels so the interior looks great. The seats are a bit older, but still have plenty of life.

The car comes with an older top that will get you home in the event of sudden shower. Also included are aluminum side curtains that need restoration but are the correct aluminum original type. The car would look stunning with a tan top and tonneau, which we can fit on the car if so desired by the new owner.

You’ll see more than 50 photos by clicking read more. Call if you would like us to ship Marco to your door! [Read more…]

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.
