Now SOLD! and will soon head to Dave in Tennessee! Congratulations Dave, this one is our 222nd sold! And if you are sad you missed it, another great choice is “Hampton,” which you can see by clicking here!
This is AN5L 48247. We call this one “Red.”
If you have been looking for an inexpensive Bugeye Sprite, don’t miss this one! For $11,495, we have this nice shiny red 1960 Bugeye with a strong 948 engine, recently serviced drum brakes and good four speed transmission. She has new aluminum radiator, electric fuel pump, alternator conversion, new seats with matching piping, new carpet and a thermostatically controlled electric cooling fan. She also has electronic ignition, new clutch and flywheel ring gear as well as a new gas tank and exhaust header. The prior owner went out of his way to make the car a great driver. We’ve changed the rear axle pinion seal to stop it from leaking.
The car is a “10 footer,” which means it looks great but shows some body imperfections when you get up close. She has some paint blemishes and amateur bodywork. But if you want to get into a shiny Bugeye you can enjoy this summer, with lots of nice new components, this is a great deal.
The car has an older top that will get you home but should be replaced. Side curtains are included (wrapped in bubble wrap), but they will need restoration. (We also sell new ones).
We got this car as a trade for one of our other cars. We have gone through it and fixed a few items that needed attention, and we are happy to work with the new owner to handle any other upgrades before the car departs for a new home. We have priced it to sell promptly. It’s really hard to find Bugeyes in this price range any more, so don’t delay, and give a call or email if you are interested!
