Now sold! Way to go, Joel (who already has two other Bugeyes)!!! Heading to Indiana soon!
Here’s a nicely re-painted driving Bugeye with new carpet for a very reasonable price–just $13,900. She looks great!
This is a AN5L 27458, a car we call “Whistler.” Body numbers and engine numbers are all correct. This is the original engine. She has mostly stock running gear, with a 948 engine fit with larger HS2 carburetors, smooth case transmission and drum brakes all around. The car was painted about 15 years ago, and has sat ever since in a heated garage. We’ve made it a driver once again and have put in new front shocks and a new master cylinder. We cleaned out the fuel system and now the car runs and drives nicely.
There is more sorting to do… the seats need rebuilding-we have provided seat cores that can be stripped and recovered with the correct mark 1 covers (which we sell in our catalog) – and the floors have some rust-through that the new owner may want to address. But the car is nicely painted in Olde English White and the all the bodywork is done. We are offering the car as it sits now for a very reasonable price, for someone looking for a driving project car they can complete at their leisure. We have put in new carpet throughout (including the trunk floor). We have also put in new door pockets and the doors are already lined. A new panel kit is still needed.
The car comes with side curtains for restoration and no top or tonneau. All the correct fittings are in place for a new short tonneau, which we can fit to the car if the new owner so desires.
Drive this car today and finish the restoration at your leisure! It’s a manageable project at a very reasonable price.
