Five speed Bugeye-70MPH highway drive

This is a slick 1959 Bugeye we have for sale called “Pal,” equipped with a rebuilt 1275 engine and a Ford five-speed transmission.

I am often asked if these cars are highway capable, and with the installed five-speed on this car, and the newly rebuilt front end, no problem! I hope you can see that in this video, as Bodhi and I head onto interstate 95.

This car is for sale in our current inventory (scroll down to see more about this car in the next post) and it is for sale for significantly less than what it cost to build one like it. Please call if you are interested in driving this fully-restored wire-wheel Bugeye home! We also have another five-speed Bugeye for sale, which you can see by clicking here…

Bugeye Sprite cockpit details-windshield gaskets, washer pumps, choke and starter knobs, door pockets…

Details matter, especially in the cockpit, where you spend the most time with your car and where everything has to be right. Too many restorations are only 3/4 baked. We work hard to change that whenever we can, by correcting and detailing the subtle features that help differentiate a good restoration from a great one. In this restoration, you’ll notice overly busy door pocket fasteners (now replaced) and a flat windshield to body gasket, which should be rolled under or it will leak at the windshield wiper posts (done).

In the video below, I show a few of the these subtle details we changed on our newest Bugeye listed called “Kelly.” The sum total of those details can really improve any restoration.

Austin Healey 100 M sorting

We are big Healey lovers too here are Bugeyeguy (I have a BN2 and BJ8 in my personal collection), and this week we had the pleasure of sorting out this stunning 1956 BN2 with an “M” kit. We didn’t build this car, but it was very satisfying to work on the last 20%, to make a great car even better. In particular, we fixed the worn throttle linkage to allow full throttle to be attained, which made the car so much more responsive and quick. It was formerly only getting about half of what was possible, primarily because of lost motion in the worn linkage.

We also fit this nice blue tonneau and removed yet another plastic sinking fuel sender float that was ravaged by ethanol and on it’s way permanently to the bottom of the tank. We fit a metal float, pressure tested the tank, and ensured that it was wells-sealed.

Check out the video below for a tour of this great vehicle (above). We’ll be finished next week with our 1960 BT7 interior restoration, and we’ll post a new video about that project soon. If you have a big Healey that needs sorting, give us a call, we would be happy to help.

Bugeye Sprite summer nights

August seems the perfect time for Bugeye fun, when we in the Northeast can jump into our convertibles and enjoy the night air, with no temperature differential. Most summer nights here in Connecticut we dress-up like George Clooney for dinner dates in our Bugeyes (at least when the cars are well-prepared… otherwise we wear MOWOG coveralls).

This photo shoot is for a luxury magazine in the Philippines, “Philippine Tatler,” with a borrowed Bugeye. I am betting that this car now has a genuine George Clooney butt-print in the back deck! (We have seen many cars with dented back decks from people sitting (or sleeping?) on them-not recommended, even when there is a beautiful model at the wheel!) But then again, it’s always nice to know the provenance of your car’s butt-prints…
