This is a special car and now heading to Florida! Congratulations Phil and Abby!
“Willis” (AN5L 47705) is the product of a loving rotisserie ground-up restoration by a passionate collector. He started with a solid car and any rust was completely removed, new patches were welded in place and the entire body was recoated with primer and paint. Over and under, inside and out, everything is redone. Then the car was fit with all the best mods like a 1275 rebuilt engine and disk brakes. This car is wonderful to drive and fully sorted.
We bought the car from this restorer about two years ago, and then sold the car to a two-bugeye owner who worked out any remaining kinks and carefully finished the last few details. The result is a totally turn-key Bugeye that looks completely stock, yet hides great and tastefully done improvements. Fly-in and drive this car anywhere! Take a test drive in the video below!
Thousands were spent to upgrade the car even further after restoration. For example, a flip forward nose was fit for better engine access. A deluxe wood steering wheel was fit, so was electronic ignition in a new Pertronix distributor, with new wires and K and N lifetime air filters, new top, new tonneau, new side curtains, slick pouches for both top and side curtains and a 3.9 differential for better highway cruising. There’s more, but mainly, this car is ready to enjoy today!
We’ve sorted out the kinks for the prior owner, so you now have a unique opportunity to buy a car that has already been run through our shop and had any issues addressed. The buyer of this car wants a great driving car with extra power and no issues. Show and drive this car with ease.
Underside is beautiful!
