Awesome restored 1960 Bugeye Sprite for sale with wire wheels and all the right upgrades!

We have been busier than ever. This is good. We have never had a summer as crazy as this one, and so it’s tough to get everything done and still find time for this blog.

This week I am going to “wing it” and share the new cars that we have coming available even though I don’t have time to prepare a complete photo album. If you are interested, call and I can get you what you need to help you make a decision, especially if you still want to enjoy one of our cars this summer. There’s still time!

This is “Eggplant” (AN5L 49187), a Bugeye built in late 1960 (near the end of production) and titled as a 1961. The car was originally red and was completely stripped to bare metal in 1999. She was then painted this very deep and luscious color of aubergine. She shines beautifully!

This is a great performance Bugeye with 175 (wider) tires, front disk brakes, rebuilt 1275 engine (with under 100 miles) and a nice ribcase transmission. Nice chrome wire wheels are a bonus. These are quite popular, and properly mounted on the factory splines (not the dangerous bolt-on conversion) The car has been completely rebuilt with all new parts very few miles ago, which makes this a very attractive and very sporty Sprite. This one is available for $23,995

Engine bay is very tidy. Nice exhaust header! And signed by Donald Healey’s son Brian (BIC)!

Call if you are interested!

Striking five speed 1959 Bugeye Sprite for sale!

This is a new “Goldie” (AN5L 10900), a 1959 Bugeye with another striking paint job, this one metallic gold. This is a performance Bugeye, with a street friendly 1275 engine, front disk brakes, 175 (wider) tires, minilight wheels and a Datsun five speed transmission.

This car also has a flip forward nose for better engine access and an alternator upgrade, as well as a roll bar and stereo system. This would be a great car for anyone wanting to enjoy overdrive cruising in fifth gear. These five speeds also offer fully synchronized gear shifting so anyone can drive this car with ease.

This is another striking Bugeye, with all the popular performance upgrades. If you are new to “the bugisphere,” there’s a strong demand for tastefully modified cars, and this one is no exception, as it provides better traction, more power, improved cooling courtesy of an aluminum radiator, a fully synchronized gearboxe, improved disk brakes, and upscale wheels.

This one is for sale for $22,995. Fly in and drive it home!

I’ll have more pictures of these cars next week! But if you are looking for a solid Bugeye with nice upgrades, this car is a great option!

Porsche 911 SC Targa for sale-1978 with just 65k miles!

Many British car owners confess they also love air-cooled 911s. I was lucky to have a dad who loved these cars, so I love them too. I’m always on the lookout for good ones and I was excited to find this nice low mileage example in a unique original color. I bought this car as part of a larger collection, and I have been holding this 1978 911SC for about four years. But I am just not using it so it’s time to send it to a new home.

This is a great car. 911s have been climbing in value and these 3 liter SCs have been appreciating nicely! This one is stunning, especially if you like a 911 in something other than red, white, black or silver.

The body is great. There are zero dings on the sides of the car. It’s very clean, as you would expect with a low mileage vehicle. The engine is strong. Leak down and compression numbers are all excellent. We recently put in a pop off valve and replaced the hydraulic engine lid damper and replaced the oil S hose. The car is ready to go!

This car is unspoiled and feels like a time capsule. Everything is as it was when it left the factory, except the steering wheel, which is a very nice and high-quality “Dino” brand replacement. Coco mats help evoke the spirit of the era, as does the distinctive and simple mechanical targa top. By the way, have you seen the current 911 targa tops in operation? The entire rear window lifts up automatically and a motorized assemblage of levers and arms moves the top into the back of the car. It’s an engineering marvel, and I shudder to think of the repair costs down the road.

This is not that.

This is a top removed by flipping two levers. The top assembly easily collapses to fit in the trunk. Simple. From another era. And it was all professionally rebuilt just last year by a 911 specialist.

In fact, the window mechanism is also simple, this is a wind-up window car without A/C. It also has a mechanical radio antennae (listed on COA). In the engine bay you can see the air pump has been removed because it was in the way and no longer connected anyway. I have saved all the pieces in a box to travel with the car.

Included are the two factory sales brochures from 1978, which verify the accuracy of this example (see photo album below). When you get into this car, the factory shag carpet and colors stand out because this seems nothing like modern automotive color palettes. When did you last see a dark brown car? For me, that’s what makes this car particularly special.

Turn the key and iconic round warning lights come to life. (These are the same lights I would see in the ’69 911S my dad once owned- this car gets you that look and feel without breaking the bank). I have a 1997 993 as well, and that car’s square warning lights (and there are a lot of them) just don’t as beautifully convey the soul of a 911. This dashboard is much more reminiscent of the older cars, which is one reason I love this vintage so much–more affordable, but still with the heritage and feel of the early 911s.

This car certainly seems to have spent much of it’s life garaged, the dashboard and gauges are great, they are not sun-faded or worn and there are no cracks in the dashboard. Thus the car looks much it would have in 1978. The interior is excellent.

The car comes with a notebook full of receipts and information from the prior owner, including the Porsche COA as shown. It was repainted once and shines beautifully. Everything works (except the horn) and it’s a blast to drive. The transmission is excellent, with no complaints from the synchros and the gearbox is a joy, with easy downshifting.

We have done a bit of maintenance on this car during my four years of ownership. We added a new premium Deka battery two years ago. We changed one rear wheel bearing and rebuilt both front calipers. We adjusted the valves, put in new gaskets, changed the injectors, air filter, plugs, wires, cap and rotor, as well as the oil, which has few miles on it since. New tires were just installed and the Targa top was also completely restored by a Targa specialist. Headliner, vinyl and all rubber are now new (not pictured).

This car has the original engine, as verified by the pictured Porsche COA (see photos below). The timing chain tensioners were upgraded by the former owner about ten years ago. Receipts are included. VIN number is included in photo album. Build date was 12/77.

The car is a blast to drive. Call if you are interested!

Great 1960 Iris Blue Bugeye Sprite fully restored and for sale!

This is AN5L 36845 “Morrie.” We have owned this car before and it has received a ton of work and new parts. It is an excellent driver, restored and quite sharp. I just drove the car to lunch and enjoyed the smooth ride courtesy of recent tires and new shocks all around! Check out the video below!

It’s a very stock car, with a 948 CC power plant and drum brakes on all four corners. The interior is quite nice, with new seat foam and great new seat covers in the correct navy color scheme with light blue piping. Carpet and panels are also nearly new.

The tires are nearly new as is everything else. This car has been the subject of a comprehensive restoration about ten years ago. Fewer than 1000 miles have been driven since. This is a great Bugeye for anyone looking to tool around the neighborhood in a mostly stock Sprite, with a big smile on their face!

Three point inertia seat belts and a great blue tonneau are nice upgrades! Also included are top and window storage bags. The top is good and the windows are nearly new.

This is a very clean restored car and ready to enjoy this summer! Now available for $21,995!

Bugeye Dance

Bugeyes are coming and going in every direction! ‘

It has been our busiest summer ever, as we swim in a sea of Bugeyes of all configurations (there are about 20 in our building at the moment). You might have noticed that we blew through our 250th Bugeye sold We have barely had time to celebrate.

Thank you for believing in us, for trusting us, for buying our parts and our cars, and most of all, for your support!

Frogeye bums

FrogE electric Bugeye number two nears completion

We’ve begun drive testing on FrogE #2, destined for a customer in Maryland. We are not done yet, but here are pictures of our progress to date. This car uses different batteries than car #1, with a goal of increased range. Below you can see the completed battery array, complete with Ferrari-like lexan viewing panels over the battery cells.

Above you can also see the heat exchanger in the radiator brackets, 220 charger (in front of the batteries) and the single master cylinder for the brake pedal. We would love to sell electric conversion kits, but the complexity is such that for now we can only do conversions in our building. Call if you would like us to pick up your car and bring it here for conversion. Our trucks can go anywhere. Until we can simplify this installation, our kits will have to wait, unless you are a very skilled installer.

Above you can see the framework Kenny designed to hold our batteries. This cage will allow the entire battery assembly to lowered in place with an engine hoist. You can see the blue AC electric motor in the photo above, in the transmission tunnel, where it lives low and aft.

Above you can see the level 2 (220) charge plug in place in the flip-up filler cap. We had to modify the cap to allow use of the charging station plug to fit, but we are very happy with the result. Car #1 had a 110 plug in the filler neck, but this charger allows both a 110 and 220 plug in the same receptacle with an adaptor. So car #2 has one recharge receiver instead of two.

Notice also the larger brake pedal and absence of a clutch pedal

Above you can see the nearly complete new blue interior. Below is how we got the car. While here, this car has received a new welded up dashboard with navy blue cover and new electronic gauges that speak to the electric systems on board. One big challenge is routing the wires from the rear of the car to the forward compartment. We built a fat box over the inner rocker panel on the passenger side which serves as a soffit for the wires. You can just see that the inner rocker panel cover is a bit thicker than usual because of the heavy wires that run inside. In this way, we can hide the wires that communicate between front and rear of the car.

New seats and steering wheel go in next! We’ll have more pictures next week of the completed car!
