Helen is now sold. She is the 100th Bugeye we have prepared and sold and thanks to all who supported us to reach this milestone! Helen will be moving to Ontario shortly!
This is Helen, an excellent restored Bugeye, ready to go. We just bought the car back from the 6’5″ former owner who had us build him the LWB Bugeye into which he fits much better!
This car is now better than ever as we have just serviced the car. We had already loaded this car a whole host of great accessories for the former owner, including an electric fuel pump upgrade, electronic ignition, K & N air filters (not pictured), rebuilt carburetors, air horns, a new jack, excellent top and side curtains, and storage bags to boot! The last owner spared no expense, and the car has everything you need to enjoy this car to the fullest.
She’s quick, with a strong 1275 motor with exhaust header, 4 speed ribcase transmission, wide tires, front sway bar and disk brakes. We put in a new performance muffler (with great twin chrome tips) and a new gas tank and rebuilt original fuel gauge. She also has a brake and clutch master cylinder set-up from a later Sprite, a nice upgrade to give you independent reservoirs for your hydraulic components. It all works great.
Helen’s underside is very solid, floors have been repaired with new sheet metal when the car was restored. The minilight wheels are excellent. The interior is nearly new and quite comfortable, with a performance wood steering wheel.
She’s an exceptional Bugeye and a blast to drive- an excellent driving car in every way.
The buyer for Helen wants a nice, quick and shiny car with an excellent interior, disk brakes, 1275 engine and a load of upgrades and accessories-a turn-key Bugeye.
