Just right white 1960 Bugeye Sprite for sale






Bodhi is now sold and will soon be heading to a new home on Long Island. Congratulations Rich!

This is AN5L 31485, one great Bugeye, built in early 1960. This car feels “just right” in vanilla white and burgundy (AKA olde english white & red), and it’s just like the one you used to own after college. Or you would have liked to own. Or your friend used to own.

The car has a nice shine, and all the correct switches and dials, and driving it feels like stepping back in time. It’s unmolested, cleaned up, and it all works, and works well! We’ve been through the car, and fixed a bunch of the usual shortcomings, and now this car is ready for a new owner, and a new home.

We call this car Bodhi. The car is named after our new puppy, who is quite entertaining and attracts a ton of attention, just like this Bugeye. You can see Bodhi in a state of bliss in the photo below, and I think the new owner of this car will feel pretty much the same way!

This car has a 948 engine and drum brakes. Floor repairs are complete, with new sheet metal panels welded in place. Tires are new. All the brake components are new last year, including the master cylinder which was upgraded with a pair of brass sleeves for better durability. Carbs are upgraded to HS2, a nice improvement over the the stock H1s, so you get better performance and easier maintenance. The car drives great!

He comes with a great top and newly restored original sidecurtains. See pictures. Tonneau is also nice.

The buyer for this car is looking for an impressive almost totally stock Bugeye, in classic white with Burgundy. This is a car sure to impress at a very reasonable price!
