MGTD Barn Find for sale-sitting for 35 years!

NOW SOLD and heading to Maryland! Congratulations John!

This 1952 MGTD (TD 21176) has been parked in a garage in Pennsylvania since 1982. The prior owner acquired it in 1975, rebuilt the engine in 1976, used it regularly, and then health issues caused him to park it exactly where it sat for the next 35 years. We recently freed up the brakes (she now rolls easily), brought it to our shop, drained the old fuel, changed the oil, lubricated the cylinder walls, established oil pressure and started it up. The car is is ready for mechanical freshening to make it a wonderful driver once again.

She’ll require all new hydraulic and rubber cooling system parts to come back to life. The fuel tank will need to be cleaned-out or replaced to ensure a good fuel supply. The bias ply tires are old and need replacement. The door hinges need work. So there is work to do.

But there is something quite magical about this car, just as it sits. It has just the right patina, with an older inexpensive respray in off-white that looks just fine. The interior is mostly original, including what appears to be the original vinylide dash covering and the original now decayed steering wheel (reproductions of these are available). The seats too look just right and overall, this car has time-warp appeal. It’s the kind of car you can drive without worry, while still impressing everyone as you go. There is something very attractive about this kind of ride.

The underside is excellent. There is no rust. This has been a dry car. There are a few nicks and scratches in the paint, but the structure of the car is exceptionally solid. Maybe that’s why this car feels, to me anyway, just about right.

The top is good and so are the four piece side curtains! Lots of documentation is also included.

Call or email if you would like to take this MGTD home!

New product! Bugeye Sprite/Midget thin wheel spacers

This new 1/8 inch spacer solves a recurring challenge we have seen in our shop… some cars have rear tire rub issues while cornering, especially with wider than normal rear tires. With 165 or 175 series tires, these are essential and all you need to ensure the tires will not rub. Sometimes even 155 series will hit the radius arm support in the rear wheel well on spirited cornering. So we designed the perfect spacer to give just enough additional clearance and keep rear tires from rubbing.

Other spacers we have seen on the market to not fit tightly so we designed our own that fits right. This one centers on the hubs nicely to properly support the center of the wheel so you can run larger tires. Bugeyes came stock with a slightly narrower rear track and these spacers also help to make everything look a little more balanced.

Note, make sure to check the torque settings on the rear lug nuts when fitting, and after a short drive, be sure to re-torque your lug nuts. Proper torque for stock rear studs is 38lbs. When these spacers are installed, a few threads of the stock lug nut will be exposed. We also have longer studs available if you prefer to change them.

We’re excited to offer yet another custom product to fix a recurring Spridget issue!

Caitlyn Jenner’s Bugeyeguy Bugeye in People Magazine

Caitlyn Jenner has done a lot for Bugeye Sprite awareness. I can’t think of any other 60-year old British classic car that is enjoying such great publicity, all courtesy of Caitlyn. (EG in People magazine recently, as shown here.) Her new memoir features the story of the family Bugeye from the 60s, and also includes pictures of the new Bugeye she purchased recently from us, as shown.

All of us who love Sprites are lucky to have Caitlyn’s support for our cars (and for collectible cars in general), and her notoriety will only continue to support enthusiasm for the car we all so dearly love!

1959 Austin Healey Sprite, restored with automatic transmission!

This is a Bugeye we call “Scarlett,” (AN5L 9824). If you are a purist, then this car is not for you. But if you love Bugeyes and need an automatic transmission (for whatever reason), this car is the greatest thing going, and it could be the ticket to a summer ride that otherwise would not have been possible. Over the years, we have met quite a few people who could not operate a manual transmission for a host of reasons (ranging from physical challenges to pure preference) and this car helps bridge that gap. We had one other auto Bug with an Opel driveline, which went into service in Louisiana to provide a lot of smiles for a collector and his wife.

This car is very well-restored with a 1.6 liter Chevette drivetrain and three speed automatic transmission with an electric overdrive fourth speed. It was built about 15 years ago in Texas, then sold roughly ten years ago to a couple in Virginia. The odometer currently shows 13,763 miles, and it looks to me that this is the mileage that was put on the car since the restoration over the past 15 years. Everything looks quite clean. It is common for restorers to zero out mileage after a massive project such as this one. As with most British cars of this vintage, actual mileage is unknown.

The finish is excellent and shines beautifully. The builder removed the beading strips on the top of the nose and fenders, which always makes Bugeyes look cleaner. This too was very well executed, as was a very smart bonnet lock in the footwells the locks down the flip forward nose.

The fabricator who built this Sprite did an admirable job fitting the driveline and trimming the cabin. It’s all clean and well customized. The GM transmission is of course wider than the standard Sprite gearbox, but by removing the battery and heater shelf, everything fits just fine. The transmission tunnel in the cockpit is also slightly wider, and very well executed. The large radiator is clearly up to the task of keeping everything cool, with two substantial electric fans mounted to help when needed. The car drives quite nicely, with acceleration similar to what you would get from a stock 1275 engine. HP is about 70, similar to the later Sprite power plant. Front disk brakes are also fit and the stopping power is quite good. Roll bar is nice, as are fender mirrors.

Check out the short video below for a more detailed look at the installation and controls. This car is well-sorted and ready to go. Too often, this sort of project is a bit half-baked. But this car was lucky to meet a great builder, who made a very well-modified user-friendly Sprite that has stood-up to the test of 15k miles, and seems to be ready for a whole lot more! Note: This car was built in 1959 but is titled as a 1960 model. Many British cars seem to have been titled in the year after their manufacture, perhaps they sat for a winter and were sold the following Spring?

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!


New! Deluxe Bugeye Sprite floor cover kit!

Here’s one of our best new products yet! These new mats will transform your Bugeye Sprite cockpit! This rubberized floor mat set is true to the heritage of a Bugeye Sprite while adding durability and style. It’s easy to clean and a perfect match for original Bugeye trunk mats.

For years we have tried to develop a practical non-carpet solution for Bugeye Sprite floor covering. The original cars came with thin rubber footwell and tunnel mats which were not very durable and did not last. They have proven difficult to manufacture.

Instead, we have now developed a new kit that uses the same material used to make the original trunk and rear shelf mats, which allowed us to create an elegant yet authentic extension of those rear mats. Now, you can cover your entire Bugeye floor in a non-carpet material that looks correct. It’s durable, lined with horsehair for sound deadening, and it also looks more appropriate in a Bugeye than carpet.

Carpet is nice, we’ve been selling our own carpet sets for years. But this new material looks to me like what a Sprite should have on it’s floors. I love this product so much, I have built it into my personal car. I think you will feel the same way and want to add it to yours!

The tunnel mat is the centerpiece. It’s molded into a single central cover, unlike the usual two piece carpet kit seen on most cars. It’s then French stitched with contrasting thread for an elegant longitudinal detail. These seams are inspired by the ribs that were molded into the original rubber mats.

We have also improved upon the layout that’s common in carpet kits. These front footwell mats are one piece, thereby eliminating the need to glue in the small inboard triangular pieces found in carpet kits. It’s one more improvement to make installation easier.

Above you can see our green kit installed in my Bugeye “Gumby.” Contrasting thread helps to produce a high-level result. A heel pad is also available for the driver’s footwell, which are available in rubber or deluxe wool sisal-just ask. Color combinations are extensive, each kit is made to order. We stock the most common Bugeye colors, Black with white stitching, red with white stitching, blue with white stitching and green with silver stitching as shown.

All the photos shown do not show panel kits in place. Once installed, the stock vertical panels will cover the edges of the mats and secure those edges. So please excuse these prototype photos. We’ll have more pictures once Gumby’s custom leather green seat and panels are built, which will further finish off the edges. All edges that remain exposed once the panels are installed are finished-off with matching binding bound in contrasting fabric.

We’ll also add pictures of our red and blue prototypes shortly!
