Colin is now sold and will soon be relocating to North Carolina. For more great restored cars, please click “BUGEYES FOR SALE” in the right margin of this page.
Colin is a recent restoration with a stock 948 engine, smoothcase transmission, and a new disk brake upgrade which includes an entirely new front end–new kingpins, bushings and front hubs. He has a newly rebuilt correct original rebuilt speedo and tach, which document the new beginning for this restored vehicle.
Colin now shows just 9 miles on the odometer, and looks brand new!
The car was beautifully restored by the prior owner in a multi-year project and now Colin is wonderful to drive and ready for you. We’ve just added brand new blue seats with contrasting Iris Blue piping, to complete the stunning interior! These have the correct seat patterns and colors as they would have been offered when new. New foam provides a super comfortable ride.

The exterior is finished in Iris blue, one of the five original colors offered new on Bugeyes. White wall tires were popular with these cars when new, and these tires are fit with vintage Atlas “flap walls” (also known as “porta-walls”)laid over new Khumho tires. (If you prefer blackwalls, the white flaps can be easily removed.) In my opinion, the white walls add a great vintage feel to an already vintage color.
This is an excellent restoration and the car has no rust. The engine compartment is very well detailed and was painted when the engine was out of the car during the restoration. The engine has been upgraded to HS2 carburetors from a later Sprite. These are slightly bigger than the original H1 Bugeye carbs and a nice upgrade.
We can ship Colin anywhere in the world.
I love the range of Bugeye possibilities-from modified to a completely stock Bugeye like Colin shown here. We offer Bugeye fun for everyone!
