This is a barn-find Bugeye that has been living in an actual barn in Ohio since 1982, when it was dragged home by a father and son for a restoration (that unfortunately never happened). We’ll now drag it to our place and evaluate what it will take to put yet another Sprite back on the road.
I was able to speak to the prior owner of this car who owned it from 1973-1982. He took it apart and sold it to the folks who put it in this chicken coop, where it has lived for the past 35 years, and earned the nickname “Bird.”
I’ll get additional photos as we extract it, so you can watch the car begin its journey back to the open road.
