Meet Fiona (AN5L 34022), a 1960 Bugeye driver with some great upgrades. This strong Sprite is available for $16,900 and this car is perfect for anyone who wants a nice car that is not so perfect you can’t enjoy it, but still nice enough to impress.
I really like the period Amco Nerf bars front and rear because they are different, and I love a luggage rack so you can, for example, bunji on a stack two folding bikes and go cycle exploring in a new town with your mate. All this extra chrome is straight and in nice shape. The car also has a single downdraft Weber Carburetor for easier maintenance, an exhaust header for more power, excellent strong mini light alloy wheels and an electric fuel pump, all driving a great 948 engine. A remote spin on oil filter is also fit, much more convenient than the original. An alternator was also fit along with an upgraded electronic tachometer with the correct original stock face. The slick vintage wood steering wheel is also a really nice period accessory with Les Leston style. Come for a drive with me in the video below!
We’ve just completed a major hydraulic service on this car, especially the drum braking system front and rear, including a new upgraded brass-sleeved master cylinder, new slave cylinder, new wheel cylinders on all four corners, new brake shoes, new axle seals and gaskets and o rings, new radius arm bushings, new brake shoes all around and four new shock absorbers. Now the car drives and stops great! We’ve also mated the ribbed case transmission with the correct shift lever, so shifting is now precise and crisp. The car drives great!
She has a few cosmetic blemishes, including a little bit of paint damage from leaking brake fluid from the old master cylinder. It’s minor, and the car is priced accordingly.
The car comes with an old tonneau, a top that is usable in a bind but a bit tired, and good side curtains. We can fit a new top and tonneau if you like for an extra fee.
Fiona is a great Bugeye for anyone who wants nice but not perfect cosmetics, at a great price! Call or email for more details or to take Fiona home!
