Here’s a great Bugeye with an underside quite remarkably original, with no signs of rust. It’s quite rare to find such a solid un-restored underside on a Bugeye.
This is Roger, and he’s spent a dry life in Tulsa Oklahoma, a climate that is quite good for British cars!
Roger has had his powerplant upgraded to a strong 1275 engine. He drives great with good power and good fun. The paint is shiny, seats are nice and the carpet is brand new. He’s got a nice off-white tonneau, and an older top and sidecurtains… all you need!
We’ve restored the brakes and clutch with new hydraulic and brake components all the way around. We upgraded the master cylinder to a sleeved unit that will last a good long time for the new owner.
This week, we gave Roger new shoes, and now he rolls on great rubber, dressed up with “portawalls” (or “slap on’s,” “Mickies” or “flapwalls…”) These are white wall rubber inserts that are held on by the tire bead-they’re fun! And easy to remove if you just want a plain black wall tire.
He’s got a really cool rear nerf bar for the rear bumpers, a period Amco accessory I believe, and it’s in great shape! In fact, all the chrome is nice!
You’ll notice we never list the mileage of our cars for sale… that’s because speedos often break, or are swapped, or cables break, so the data is rarely accurate. This car, because of the surprisingly solid underside, is presumed to be a relatively low-mileage car.
This is a super solid and sweet Bugeye that will bring the new owner many miles of great fun!
