Excellent two-owner 1959 Bugeye Sprite driver for sale! Price reduced!

ON DEPOSIT! Congratulations! Steve and Alisa!

This is Mitchell, car # AN5L 29756, manufactured in late 1959. (30215 was the first made in 1960). This is a two-owner car we purchased in 2015 from the widow of the original owner. We sold the car in 2015 with 73,707 miles, which we believe to be the original mileage. We sent it to a new home in Maryland at that time and we now have the car back for sale with 76,720 miles-this owner added 3013 miles during his stewardship.

Along the way, the car has received excellent service and several upgrades including rebuilt 1098 head with new hardened valve seats as well as new hydraulics, K and N lifetime air filters and more. This month, we put in an entire new carpet kit. The car also comes with a brand new clutch installed. Documentation is excellent, including a notebook full of receipts showing thousands of dollars of work done to keep the car in excellent repair. I’ve shown an engine rebuild receipt from 1970 in the photo album below. There are dozens of additional receipts included, from the 70s right up to the present. The car is mostly stock, with a 948 engine (with larger head) and drum brakes all around.

The top and tonneau are matching tan in nice shape as are the side windows. The top and windows come in nearly new Bugeyeguy pouches which will keep them looking new.

The car looks great in the original cherry red that came on the car (it has been repainted once). The underside is quite solid and clean.

Mitchell is very well-sorted and very well put together. It’s a car you can buy with confidence and enjoy right away, at a very attractive price!
Give a call if you would like more information about Mitchell. He will be a joy to own!
