We have performed an extensive mechanical restoration and made this into a wonderful driving car. She’s extremely quick with an uprated 1275 engine and custom exhaust system which includes a fancy exhaust header and twin-tipped chrome tail pipe. A front anti-roll bar reduces body roll and improves the great handling. She has completely rebuilt carburetors with re-bushed throttle shafts as well as an electronic fuel pump and many other new parts, including new shocks at all four corners and a sleeved and rebuilt master cylinder. We also replaced the generator with the correct Bugeye model and fit a reconditioned original tachometer, new cable, and tach gearbox to make the tachometer work properly just like when these cars were new. Most recently, we removed the fuel tank to replace the sending unit to make the newly rebuilt correct Bugeye fuel gauge work properly. A fuel tank inspection at that time revealed an excellent tank with no rust. We installed a new fuel filler neck grommet, fuel filter and upgraded grose jets in the carburetors while we were at it, to complete the restoration of the entire fuel system from gas cap to spark plugs.
Felice also has a completely refurbished ribcase transmission with zero miles and new radius rod bushings. This all add up to make a very tight, nimble, responsive and great driving Bugeye! The suspension is tight and properly damped with no rattles… she has an impressive ride! As with all our cars, we have put Felice through our comprehensive evaluation process, identified all shortcomings and sorted-out any issues. Felice is now ready for a new home!
Cosmetically, she’s a real head-turner in silver-blue metallic, an excellent color for Bugeyes that changes hue slightly in different light. Excellent interior with new blue seat covers, seat foam and seat pans. Matching correct new blue dashboard cover and new knobs. Cockpit trim is all newly polished. New door seals. Speedometer is also new and correct, with just 83 miles showing. All the gauges are newly reconditioned and correct. Excellent blue short tonneau. Thousands invested!
This is a great Bugeye!
