1960 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite budget driver for sale, wire wheels and 1275 engine!



IMG_2086This is a 1960 Austin Healey Sprite number AN5L 31994, built in early 1960 (30215 was the first Bugeye built in 1960). We call this car “Brady.”

Brady is now sold and will soon be heading to a new home in Massachusetts. We’ll have two more similar budget Bugeyes for sale shortly, make sure to subscribe to be notified as these two cars come online!

Here’s an inexpensive way to get into Bugeyes! This car is not a show piece but it’s solid, drives great and looks great!

Brady is a driver — fun to drive with a lot of work done. Most importantly, he has three very desirable upgrades built onto his strong foundation… strong 1275 engine, front disk brakes, and knock-off wire wheels and good floors! This is a budget Bugeye with a 10-footer paint job. There are some nicks and chips in the paint, and some people would opt for a repaint. But the car is solid, and looks good, and is ready to enjoy.

The interior still looks nice in tan, but shows some wear. We stock Bugeye carpet kits of our own design (available in tan and other colors) and Brady would benefit from a new set. A carpet upgrade would be a fun and rewarding project for the new owner and would be a quick way to spruce-up Brady’s interior. There is a good tonneau and an older top with a worn rear window. Good top bows! Side curtains are good with tinted plexi.

The prior owner spent a lot of time making Brady a good driver. He periodically drove the car at night and all the lights work. He put in a rebuilt generator. The tach is not working, but the car starts up and otherwise runs great.

Brady is ready for summer fun! We have not serviced this car to keep the cost down for the new owner (but we can if so desired). Here’s a great car for a new owner who wants to tinker with a wonderful classic British car! As with all our cars, call or email for pricing information.
