“Marsha,” a spectacular restored 1959 Bugeye Sprite for sale!


Now sold! Our 150th Bugeye sold! Congratulations Cici! This car will be heading to Lake Tahoe, Nevada! Way to go Cici, a dream realized!

Someone is going to have a blast winning car shows this summer with this beauty!

This is a special car for anyone who loves a complete and obsessive restoration. AN5L 13208 was lovingly restored on a rotisserie with every inch renewed and re-coated. The car was fit with a rebuilt 948 engine and smoothcase transmission, and is now ready for a new home. Everything is new, with less than 500 miles driven since complete and comprehensive restoration.

We purchased this Sprite from a passionate California collector. Marsha was always a California car, and still wears her original black plate. The car was solid to begin with, and enjoyed a complete restoration, with every detail painstakingly handled. We then took the car to the next level by finishing the mechanical restoration and optimizing the car, so now it’s truly complete. The interior is immaculate with all new parts. Dashboard is recovered. Trunk is beautiful. Underside is immaculate. New stainless exhaust system. Excellent base/clear paint job in the correct original Iris Blue. Original engine is installed.

Here’s a rare opportunity to purchase the amazing hard work of an excellent restorer (for pennies on the dollar) coupled with the expertise we have gained after shipping 145 other Bugeyes to new homes. We have combed through this car and sorted out any remaining issues. This is now a stunning and wonderfully driving Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite is now ready for your garage.

We have shown the car with an optional hardtop. Also possible are Sebring front driving lights. Or, if you prefer, delete the hardtop and go back to stock steel wheels… we can customize this car to meet your needs!

The car comes with a great array of receipts, more than can be tallied, a lot was spent to get this car ready! Also included are great photos of the original black plate California Iris blue car before restoration. Call for details!
