Gumby got first place on the first day out. It was a small Sprite class at this years’ British by the Sea, but nonetheless a nice acknowledgment of the hard work that went into this build. Lots of people wanted to see more so I made a video of the interior details that were unique to this custom tribute Super Sprite. Which you can see below.
Gumby represents a custom interpretation of what a Bugeye Sprite can be. It was particularly exciting for us to make this car after our last similarly massive project of building a gold concours all stock and all accurate Councours car. If you missed that, car AN5L 552 was a Concours project we built for the national Healey conclave, which made Gold standard after two hours of judging by a team of four judges. 552 and Gumby were big undertakings and completely different kinds of projects. You might enjoy seeing the judges diligently inspect 552 in the short video below.
Several people asked if they could buy Gumby… it’s not for sale, will be with me for life, since I have had this car since 1979. But Gumby is a demonstration of what we can build and thus a model of what we would love to build for you! Feel free to give a call to discuss your dream Sprite build! From Concours to one-off, we would love to build it for you!
