Fun drive in “Carmine,” a great 1960 Austin Healey Sprite Mark 1, for sale!





Carmine is now sold and will soon be heading to Texas! Congratulations Phil!

This is “Carmine,” a striking black 1960 Bugeye we have just added to our inventory of about ten Bugeyes for sale (click the current inventory tab in the right margin to see the other cars). We always have a range of Bugeye choices in stock, and Carmine is unique. There aren’t that many black Bugeyes out there, especially with contrasting soft burgundy stripes to match the interior. The car has an exceptional base/clear finish–the stripes are beautifully encased in a hard shell finish that reflects a deep sky! Come with me and listen to the great exhaust note by clicking the video above!

We’ve installed a bunch of new parts to get Carmine into shape, including new front shocks, new rear wheel cylinders, new rear brakes, new axle seals, o-rings and gaskets, new windshield glass gasket as well as windshield to body seal. We’ve rebuilt the carbs and tuned the car so it hums, and it’s a fast one, with really quick acceleration. The exhaust note is excellent as you’ll hear soon in the driving video. The car is fit with a sweet minimalist performance muffler. We’ve also put in new black seats with burgundy piping to perfectly match the slick racing stripes. The car is clean, and the colors are striking.

Carmine has a strong 1275 engine, front disk brakes, aftermarket wood steering wheel, four speed rib case transmission and nearly new chrome wire wheels and tires. Also fit is a nice custom center console for a little more storage, wind wings and matching custom motorcycle side mirrors mounted in the windshield frame-no extra holes to be drilled for these mirrors! There is no top or tonneau, but we have those in stock and can fit them to the car. Would be nice to have matching deep red top and tonneau but the colors clash, so black would be my choice, and we can make it happen if the new owner so desires.

Call or email for pricing. This is a special car with great upgrades and stunning curb appeal!
