Every online beauty that’s marketed as “perfect” seems to inevitably end up as an array of removed parts like you see below.
This stuff is old.
We can do better.
In the case of our Yellow Bugeye “Sharpie,” which we just sold to a client in Vermont, he was interested in investing in reliability at all costs. So we’ve gutted the car in favor of maximum drivability and optimized improvements.
The parts we sell in our catalog, (mentioned in the video below) are field tested on the roughly 400 Sprites we have now modified. As we continuously improve, we edit what we use to get the best result. Each car we put on the road is a data point, and the feedback from each of our customers helps us improve.
The changes we make improve the beast. Hopefully they will bring a new level of modern reliability to what was formerly a less than reliable classic vehicle.
With the recent surge in popularity of online auctions, it’s easy to be lulled into a serene sense that an online beauty is perfect, especially when the online audience agrees with the seller’s self-assessment. More often than not, sadly, the needs are plentiful, and a visit to our shop will help! We’ve had several cars here after victorious purchases from online auction services such as BaT, for assessment and extensive upgrade. We can pick up your classic roadster anywhere in America and transform it so that you and your partner have the greatest chance of making it home after date night! Call or email if you would like us to transform your classic car. All English classics are welcome!
Of course, if you’d like to install some of the upgrades shown in our video above on your own car, click the photos below to check some of them out or click here for our full catalog!
