This is a Bugeye we call “Johnson.” It’s a 948 powered car with drum brakes all around, as well as a smooth case transmission, so it’s relatively stock in configuration.
This is a car that was extensively made-over in our shop in February 2020, and we recently got the car back when the owner traded for something different. What’s special about this one is that we’ve gone through every square inch of this car for a great client who pretty much gave us free rein to fix anything and everything and the new owner is going to get a special car as a result. She’s cosmetically not perfect but it looks quite striking- the real value of this particular car is that it has been carefully combed in our factory and sorted-out with more than 190 improvements so everything has been adjusted fully-fettled for a lucky new owner.
Upgraded mirrors, hardura mat custom interior, spin-on oil filter, new clutch, electronic ignition, aluminum radiator, three-point seat belts, you name it (with the exception of the front sway bar), we upgraded it, all the hydraulics have been renewed too. There is an extensive build sheet we can share, if you are interested.
The underside is quite solid. The car drives great. Call if you are interested. This is a car that will show-up on the new owner’s doorstep and work reliably, because we went through it in 2020 for the prior owner and would only release it to him when it was completely sorted. Now you can have the benefit of all that hard work.
The new owner will get a Bugeye that is a delight to drive, and completely configured for best reliability and driveablilty!
