1960 Budget Bugeye Sprite for sale! Solid and sweet driver!

Hugh is now sold and will be headed to California. Congratulations Josh! Here’s your chance to get into Bugeyes for a very reasonable amount of dough.

We sold this car a few years ago and now we have the car for sale once again! Hugh is a perfect example of why everyone loves California cars. He’s dry, solid, and rust-free.

We did a bunch of great work to the car for the last owner to make Hugh better than ever: we put in a new Headgasket, New Fuel Tank, New Fuel Sending Unit, Re-wired Fuel Gauge, Re-wired headlights, Conversion to New Electric Fuel Pump, New Lucas Regulator, New 3-Point Seat Belts, New Top (Includes 2 piece top frame to accommodate Roll Bar), New Radius Arm Bushings, Entire Car was wet sanded and buffed to refresh the paint. New front shocks too!

In fact, Hugh is quite impressively equipped with his original floor pans and sheet metal throughout, all very solid. You can see this in Hugh’s photo album linked here. The car has an exceptionally solid foundation.

The car is a driver, with a strong 948 engine that also looks great under the hood. The cosmetics are good, paint is pearlescent white. If you just want an inexpensive Bugeye in which to zoom around, this is an awesome choice! Interior is clean, with very good sidecurtains included. Door pockets have recently been rebuilt too (not pictured)!

We try to find a range of good Bugeyes at a range of prices, and Hugh is a good entry point for anyone who wants to play! Email if you want to inquire about owning Hugh!
