Congratulations Art!!! Colin is now sold and will be local, taking up residency in central CT.
Here’s another superb Bugeye for sale!
We sold Colin here about two years ago and then nicely upgraded the car before delivery to the new owner. He had us modify the car with new disk brakes, minilight wheels and new wider tires, as well as a bigger 1098 head for the stock 948 engine, with new valves and hardened valve seats and a new performance exhaust. He also had us install a new electronic fuel pump and a sweet Smiths vintage ammeter, which you can see in the center of the dash. New three point retractable seat belts were added, as well as a top and window pouch to protect the nice side curtains and top.
The prior owner had us make his new stock Bugeye into a little performance machine, and the result is outstanding.
That owner drove the car just 298 miles in North Carolina (and loved every inch of them), and, because he really wasn’t using it much, sold me the car this month so we could offer it to the next steward. So here is a fully prepared Bugeye ready for a new home!
The car was previously fully restored in Florida by another passionate Sprite lover (from whom I originally purchased this car). He had stripped Colin to bare metal, repaired any rust, and repainted the car. He did nice work too! He also put in a new interior, including new seats with new foam and handsome contrasting blue piping.
The car has just gotten better and better with each new chapter. Let us next send Colin to you!
