Early 1958 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite for sale!


Kayla is now sold, to Marty, who can can see raving about her new Bugeye in the testimonials section! Congratulations Marty!

This is a car we call “Kayla,” and she’s a rare one at that… this is car number AN5L 2445, and since production started at 501, this is the 1944th car to roll off the line. You can own this great Bugeye made in the first year of production for just $15,995.

This 1275-powered car is really quick! Kayla is ready to run, and I wouldn’t hesitate to drive this car anywhere!

Further enhancing this great Bugeye are brand new factory front floor pans we welded in place. All seams have been sealed and the metal is painted, it’s a great restoration! I’ve shown a photo of the passenger footwell before we seam sealed the welds and recovered the floors with carpet.





It’s great to see another early Bugeye, as there aren’t that many 1958 cars left. The car has all the original tub markings of a true 1958 car, for example, the door gussets are intact, as are the early wheel arch supports in the boot, and slender radiator supports up front.

This one has been upgraded with a number of later car modifications for improved drivability. She has disk brakes, 1275 engine, exhaust header, front anti-roll bar, Moto Lita wood steering wheel, spin-on oil filter kit, electronic ignition and the brakes and clutch masters upgraded to the dual type from later Sprites.

These are all great driving mods, and the car drives great, with plenty of power and excellent braking.

The front end was recently rebuilt, and the car is tight.

The car comes with an older green top and very nice side curtains. No tonneau, but we can fit one for you if you like.

So here’s an early car with all the best upgrades, especially a 1275 engine and disk brakes, and she’s ready to drive home and enjoy. This is a driver that looks great at a very reasonable price. Take a test drive in the video below!
