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!

73 TR6 for sale, excellent driver, thousands spent on restoration!


This is a really nice 1973 Triumph Tr6, #CF676U. Engine number is CF823UE. We’ve known this car for a while and we’ve done restoration service work totally more than $8000 on this car. Tires, carpet and a host of other parts are brand new. Previous owners have spent thousands as well, all documented in a giant stack of receipts that will travel with the car.

Included in the file are receipts documenting the engine was rebuild in 1989. The machining and engine parts receipts are included. In 1993 the bodywork and paint was done. So the car was easy to buy when it was offered to me, when the owner decided to get a new boat. It’s a great driver that looks great, with lots of new interior parts too. Odometer stopped working recently; the car shows 51,074 miles on the clock.

Most recently, we replaced the clutch with the best one available (“magic clutch”), as well as the master and slave cylinder. Rear springs, all shocks and all hydraulics are new too. The car is fully sorted; call if you are looking for a great driver for your summer!

I will post the underside pictures shortly-I didn’t get a chance this week to get the car on the lift for photos!

64K mile 1971 Volvo P1800E for sale, overdrive!

This Volvo P1800 #184363034961 has just 64,000 miles and drives wonderfully, with a four speed transmission, aftermarket sunroof and factory electric overdrive. It has the original engine and fuel injection, and starts and runs beautifully. It was driven sporadically by the last owner who had the car since about 2000, when receipts place mileage at about 60,000. Thus the car has traveled just 4000 miles in the last 17 years. All service records are included since that time and the car was maintained with no expense spared to keep the car in excellent mechanical shape. Note the recent new front brake calipers and brake lines.

I bought this car for my personal collection. It’s solid and I love the lines of this striking and unusual classic. I just haven’t had time to enjoy it, and since I need the space, I have decided to pass this one on to someone who enjoy it.

The car was repainted dark green over the original code 104 turquoise. The paint is very good and shines beautifully. Chrome and trim is also in very nice condition. The engine bay is very clean and the underside is nice and solid. Overdrive works nicely. This car is a lot of fun to drive.

This car presents beautifully! The interior would be the next place to invest in restoration, although it is quite serviceable as is. There are a few cracks in replacement ABS dash board cover, so one might remove the dash and recover it with the original pad, which is easily available. The seats and foam are also older, which makes this car a candidate for seat restoration. All those interior parts are readily available from vintage Volvo parts specialists.

The exterior of the car looks so good and it runs so well, in many ways this is the ideal car that allows you to restore the interior at your own pace while you enjoy it. Or drive it as is, but either way, the body is nice and the car looks great. The price is $17,995. I can’t think of many classic cars this unique, this head-turning, (with overdrive and fuel injection) for this price!

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!
