1959 Bugeye Sprite for sale-excellent restored example!

This 1959 Bugeye is AN5L 11929, a nicely restored Sprite we call “Lynn.”

This is the perfect car for anyone looking for a stock Bugeye that is completely restored and offered at a great price. The car was completely rebuilt about ten years ago. She shows 3348 miles on the odometer, likely the total mileage the car has covered since its complete restoration.

The car features the original 948 engine (as verified by the Heritage Certificate, included with the sale). The engine was rebuilt during the restoration and shows great oil pressure. The car is completely stock, except for an upgraded high-output starter motor and a brand new rubber mounted electric fuel pump we put in just this week. We have gone through the car and sorted any issues. She now has a new fuel tank and filter, new premium front wheel brake cylinders, new steering column bushings and new rear hub seals. We’ve also fixed a number of annoying smaller issues, to get this car ready for the new owner, and it shows… the car is a delight to drive, better than a new Bugeye when it left the showroom floor.

The floors have been patched and repaired, as has the body, so there is no rust at all. The interior is excellent, with new foam cushions, seat covers and matching blue carpet. The windshield was also replaced during the restoration, as were the rubber gaskets. The paint shines very nicely, as you can see by the vivid sky reflected in the photos in the gallery.

The car wears stock wheels and radial tires. A top bow is included, as well as an older top, which should get you home in a pinch. We can fit a new top instead if you prefer. A new tonneau and side curtains are also available. A scissors jack and lug nut wrench are included in the nicely lined boot, as is a correct original spare tire fit with a newer radial tire.

If you are looking for a delightful and handsome Bugeye this Spring, this could be the right car for you!

Offered at $20,995. To restore a Bugeye Sprite to this level would cost considerably more! Please call for more details. And check out our new shop coming together behind the car in the picture above! We made good progress this week!


1960 Fantastic restored Bugeye Sprite for sale! Video drive!

This is AN5L 25015, a 1960 Austin Healey Sprite called “Rose.”

We completely restored this car-in the spring of 2016. It is one of our best ground-up restorations, and everything was brand new and no expense was spared when we assembled the car at that time. She has a rebuilt 948 engine, rebuilt smooth case transmission, rebuilt front end kingpins and new drum brakes. Rose was also beautifully painted in primrose yellow at that time and the paint still looks brand new. The mileage when she last left our building was 21073… it sits now at 22940, so the car has traveled 1867 miles since restoration.

Rose’s former owner Ron C. has just purchased our “Bees Knees” Bugeye, the third Bugeye he has purchased from us. Ron is the second person to score a Bugeye hat trick… Bill H. was our first customer to score three Bugeyes).

Each of Ron’s Bugeyes has been different and personalized. Ron is moving on to a little pocket racer Bugeye, from “Rose,” an otherwise very stock car. His freedom to sample different Bugeye personalities is actually a phenomenal testimonial for what a Bugeye can do, and what a Bugeye can be. Ron went from a modified supercharged stock-looking car, to this car-stock and 948cc, to Bees-Knees, 948 with just Brooklands screens. We serve all the factions of the Bugeye-sphere. It’s a lot of fun to create the next car with Ron, since he hangs out with all Bugeye factions, from stock to modified. We’ll show you the cool new mods he has planned for Bees Knees in future posts.

Back to Rose… this is a wonderful car. Ron has used it to visit shows and to enjoy on weekends (winning “best paint” one year at the British Motorcar Festival in Rhode Island). He has added a few custom mods, including original NOS Amco wind wings and period Speedster wing mirrors. I had not seen these on a Bugeye before, but I love them because they match the curves of the car. The mirrors feel like the product of 60s accessory shopping in the JC Whitney catalog, back when the car was a car and not something so precious it couldn’t have tasteful mods. I like the mirrors for that, they remind us that people used period accessories all the time on these cars, which is one reason why there are always so many extra holes! (see next post).

Come for a drive in the video below! (this video was shot two years ago, before the mirrors were installed by the most recent owner. She still looks this good…

Ron also put in the Amco style arm rest and painted the piping white for nice contrast. The frog on the grill is also along for the ride.

The interior and the engine bay feature everything new, although with about 2000 miles on it all it’s clean enough to win shows, and dirty enough to enjoy the drive and not freak-out if a shower is in the forecast. The top is like new. No windows or tonneau, but we can fit those…

Give a call if you want to hear more about this fine car, it’s a winner. Super clean, superb restoration, runs and drives great, smooth riding and great fun!


1958 Thin Windshield Bugeye Sprite driver for sale called “Hampton!”

If you like the earliest of Bugeyes, this one is for you! PRICE REDUCED to $19,995!

Of the original 49k and change that were made, how many Bugeyes do you think are left? 2500? 5000?

And of those remaining cars, how many are left that were made in 1958? I am guessing 10% (and that may be high). So there are somewhere around 250-500 1958 Bugeyes left on the planet. And that’s why I wanted to share this car “Hampton” with you again. It’s a rare car, and should be a great investment, given its rarity.

To be fair, this is not a correct factory color and the larger engine and Weber carb are not stock either. But the correct thin windshield, the correct original ’58 only door levers, the correct ’58 rocker panel gussets at the B pilar, and other ’58-only features make this a car well worth considering.

To make Hampton even more attractive, we have lowered the price to $19,995. Call if you want to take Hampton home! This is a great car with a sweet performance exhaust note and a wonderful shine! Spring has come early in New England, let’s get you ready to enjoy the warming weather!

Hampton is car #AN5L 3418. If you are unfamiliar, at roughly car #5500, the windshield frames changed to a thicker assembly, and these early assemblies are now quite rare. We almost never see these properly fit to the appropriate early cars so it’s great to see one shown here. They are more slender and graceful, and it’s nice to see one still in circulation where it belongs. Notice also the long door levers, which also changed to a much more common shorter flavor later in the Bugeye production run. You can also see the correct early windshield wiper motor in the engine bay.

This is a very sharp driver with a larger 1275 engine, rib case transmission and disk brakes, so the power is great and the braking is excellent. The car is also fit with a performance exhaust that makes a very nice noise. A single Weber downdraft carburetor has been fit too. We just put in new front shocks. A solid state electric fuel pump has also been installed. Front anti-roll bar is also present for optimized handling. There’s a nice air horn too.

This car is ready!

The paint is quite good with a lot of luster as shown. We put in new carpet, new panels and new door seals, which made the car quite stunning inside too.

Floors have been repaired. They look good and you can see this in the photos of the tub before we installed the new carpet and panels. There was a roll bar once, and you can still see its former mounting holes in the floor pan. There is no top or tonneau, but we can make a new white or black one for you if you like. New windows are also available.

This is a strong driving car that would be a welcome addition to any stable!


1958 Excellent Restored Leaf Green 1275 Bugeye Sprite for sale, “Luigi!”

This is “Luigi,” (AN5L 3057). The car is fully restored and ready for a new owner. It’s a really nice car and it drives great. 1958 Bugeyes are the most rare and have a few unique features you don’t find on the later models.

This is an early thin windshield 1958 car, about the 2500th made (of about 50,000). Notice the factory gusset in the rocker panel at the “B” pilar, and the early style windshield wiper motor top, visible under the bonnet. These are all rare features original to the early ’58 Bugeyes. Windshield frames changed at car #5277, and the fatter frame continued through the end of the production run. Early cars are getting more and more rare. Thus, Luigi is a very special Bugeye!
The car was named Luigi by “Perry,” the former owner, pictured here. He has lovingly cared for this car during his ownership since 2012. The car was completely restored in about 1985 in Alberta, Canada. Receipts are included for the engine rebuild at that time. In fact, there is a large book full of receipts from both recent owners. Perry brought the car to our shop from his home in Montreal for a major service a few years ago, and he drove the car less than 200 miles since. While he loved the car, he decided to sell it so someone else can enjoy it. The new speedo we installed a few years back now reads just 161 miles. It doesn’t look like the car has traveled many miles at all since the ground-up restoration years ago.

The underside is solid and quite clean and the car is still very sharp.

The car features a strong 1275 12V engine, from a later Sprite or Midget, with many upgrades, including lifetime K and N air filters and better (bigger) HS2 1.25 inch carburettors. It also has an electric fuel pump, auxiliary electric cooling fan mounted in the nose, exhaust header, fuel pressure regulator and coolant overflow reservoir to help keep air out of the cooling system. The electric cooling fan has a switch under the dash board as shown in the photos. There is a nice tonneau included (see picture) as well as new side curtains and a good top.

The interior is leather, the finish is excellent and the car drives beautifully–everything works. We just changed the front brake wheel cylinders to service the brake system. I have driven this car quite a bit and it is ready to go.

If you are wondering about the white reflective cap on the passenger side of the engine bay, it’s just a spray can cap over the fuse box. It’s not something you need, but it’s a nice way to store some reflective tape under the hood. I suspect Perry thought it might keep some moisture off the fuses.

The yellow “Frogari” stickers on the A pillars look great and will come off easily if the new owner desires. They are not hiding anything and were put there strictly for decoration. We should also be able to remove the Calgary event plaque on the dashboard if the new owner prefers (the car was restored in Calgary before Perry bought it). We can work out any cosmetic revisions with the new owner, but the car looks great as it sits. Another nice cosmetic (non-stock) touch is the chrome wheel trim rings.

Cheers Perry! Thanks for taking such good care of this great Frogeye!


Why buy a Bugeyeguy Bugeye?

This week, we paved the driveway and rear parking pad. It was a great milestone as we expand our facility and continue to expand our car and product offerings. With all this expansion coming to a head, this seems an appropriate time to ask,”why should you buy a Bugeyeguy Bugeye (or BugeyeguyPART) from us?”
We stand behind what we sell and we have the experience needed to produce great products. Buy from others and take your chances. For example:

In a recent interview with a seller of an old British car, I asked if there were any issues downshifting from third to second and if the transmission was in good shape. He told me it was perfect. “No issues,” he said.

I purchased the car and when it arrived, I went to back-it off the trailer and much to my surprise, I was unable to engage reverse (or any gear for that matter). The clutch barely worked. I started the car in gear and backed the car into the shop for repairs on my very first drive. (We have since fixed the issues).
How was it possible that such a nice guy who was so forthcoming could neglect to disclose something so elemental to our transaction?

This sort of thing happens more often than I can count. Once, a truck showed-up with one of our new acquisitions and the driver asked me who was going to push it off the trailer. I had just bought this car from a national sports car club president… how could he of all people forgot to tell me that his car didn’t run?

As the internet continues to expand, we all have more buying choices. Anyone can find a Bugeye Sprite (and anything else) online, with a seller’s promise of “perfection.” But you have to ask yourself, if Bugeyeguy is having trouble getting cars online that are accurately represented, what am I about to step in?”

Even cars that are “vetted” on social media platforms are subject to the same challenges. Internet crowds sometimes fixate on red herrings, leaving an online auction winner with a serious undisclosed challenge that could not be detected from the photos shown. We get a lot of calls each year from people who say, “I bought such and such car online. I am kicking myself that I didn’t buy one from you instead.”

We work hard to make sure our cars work. We’re not perfect. We occasionally miss things. We are working with 60-year old machines that were never built to last this long. Things break. But we have sent more than 200 serviced Bugeyes out the door and we have learned a thing or two about how to produce a wonderful British Sports car.

I drive every car we sell, bring it back to the shop with a punch list, and when that list is complete, I drive it again and repeat the process. We have the experience to know what matters. We know what might fail before it fails and we discuss with every client how we can improve and accessorize their car so that it is optimized before it departs.

We look at our car business as a partnership. We want you to be happy. We want you to have fun. We want your car to work. We have videos to help you enjoy your car. We sell parts in case something goes wrong. We explain how things work. We answer the phone, often when other businesses are closed. That’s worth a lot in today’s economy, where outsourced phone support is far from satisfying.

What we sell is different. We stand behind our product. If anything isn’t right, call me and we will work together to address your concern. It’s difficult to offer a guarantee on a 60-year old classic car. But we do a great job producing a quality product and we stand behind what we sell.

We work hard to keep our prices competitive. But even if you pay a little more for one of our cars that has been fully vetted, what you get is peace of mind. You know we went through the car. You know there will be no surprises. I‘ve bought hundreds of cars, they are almost never as represented. That’s not how we operate. Let us show you the experience we bring to the classic cars we sell.

We look forward to being of service!

Fully sorted Cherry Red 1959 Bugeye Sprite for sale-New video drive

Here’s a really nice Bugeye for anyone looking for a fully-sorted car that looks completely stock. The body color is an accurate match of the original cherry red that was available when new. It looks great with the tan top and tonneau. This car is available for $19,995 (and it would cost you a whole lot more to build one to this level)

And the car just keeps getting better…we pulled the engine to put a new clutch in “Mitchell” this week, and here’s a video from my first test drive once we put the nose back on. This car looks completely stock (even though the 948 engine has been upgraded with a larger 1098 head). This is a great Bugeye, with no issues, new carpet and a whole lot more. We’ve been through every inch of this one and it’s a great car for anyone who wants a car with all the kinks ironed-out.

Take a drive with me in the video below!
