Now sold!!! Thank you, Sharon and company!
This week we are lucky to have “Wagner” back in our inventory. AN5L 45890 is a 1960 Bugeye we completely restored and repainted in 2014 and then sent it to a customer in Florida. He has other collectible cars and didn’t drive it much… just 800 miles in the last three years. Now, he is moving out West, and decided to sell it back to us.
This is a special car and if you are the kind of collector who wants a top-shelf product, this would be a great choice, in striking black with black seats. The subtle red piping accent is a great detail, and the anthracite wheels color-coordinate with the anthracite powder coated cockpit trim and windshield frame. The car looks great and the paint still looks new.
The build-sheet includes about 50 of the best upgrades-a bunch of them are listed here: rebuilt 1275 engine, new rib case transmission, new flamethrower distributor with electronic ignition, completely rebuilt carbs, new seat foams and covers, new carpet, upgraded front disk brakes, front sway bar, new generator, re-cored radiator, electric cooling fan, LED lights, upgraded headlights, locking gas cap, cigarette lighter/phone charger mounted in washer pump hole on dash, new sidecurtains, new top, new tonneau, storage bags for all the weather gear, three-point retractible seat belts, twin-tipped stainless muffler, K and N lifetime air filters, shift knob insert, rubber mats, new generator, leather steering wheel and more! The last owner paid a total of about $39,000 for this car with all the modifications just 800 miles ago (it’s available now for less).
This car is well sorted and a joy to drive. It needs nothing to head to a new home. Or, if you like, we would be delighted to supercharge and put in a five-speed transmission. Go even further and make this into a “Super Sprite,” like Gumby, with head fairing, hard tonneau and additional performance modifications. This car is ready to go as it sits, and we are also happy to take this amazing platform to the next level!
PS-Underside of this car is excellent and it looks great with the new deep red tonneau fit-we will post pictures next week with that in place, and when we can get the car into the air…
