I regularly get calls from folks who want a good car with which they can tinker, and Spike is a good example. From a parking lot mishap, he has a crease in his behind and could use some body work. See the photo album linked below for more details.
Also, his transmission is needing a rebuild, so the engine should come out and that can be replaced with a rebuilt unit (currently jumping out of gear).
This is a good car with a great foundation and great floor pans. You can see more in the video tour posted below.
The car is equipped with a Weber sidedraft carburetor, exhaust header, electric fuel pump all on a strong 1098 (upgraded) engine. He also has front and rear sway bars, a roll bar, three point retractable seat belts and good wide tires. All nice extras!
Spike drives well! Once the transmission is repaired you’ll have a fun driver! We can also fix the transmission for you for an extra fee… we stock rebuilt transmissions.
If you want to reduce your up front cost and still purchase a Bugeye you can enjoy, Spike would be a good choice. This is a good project that will be easy to complete!
