This is “Gibbs,” (AN5L 43622) an excellent Bugeye just painted in a handsome metallic (Chevy) green. The car is restored and quite solid, with the original engine rebuilt and still in place.
This is a a great Bugeye, with a lot of restoration work recently completed. Any rust was removed and new metal was welded in place. The paint is quite nice. It’s all new work. I particularly like the light undercoating applied to the underside and inside of the boot. It’s black, uniform and tidy, making for a nice finished look in the trunk and under the entire car. It’s not gooped up like a lot of undercoat jobs.
The engine is a recently rebuilt 948, mated to a smooth case transmission. The wheels are new minilight-type, and the tires are nearly new too. Brakes are drums all around, with all new hydraulic parts.
We have just gone through the car and upgraded it to rebuilt HS2 carbs, a welcome improvement. We’ve also put in new rear shocks. Compression is 120 in all cylinders and oil pressure is also good. The car is great to drive and good fun!
A nice top is included, as are good side curtains. An electric fuel pump upgrade has also been fit. No tonneau, but we can fit one for the new owner.
The floor coverings could be improved-currently, rubber mat is in place, but we can upgrade the interior for the new owner with new carpet or a new hardura kit is the new owner so desires. Seats are very nice, black with matching green piping. No heater is fit-the car formerly lived down south where one was not needed. We also sell heater kits if the new owner prefers.
This restored car shines brilliantly and is available now for immediate driving fun! Please call or email for more information!
