1960 Bugeye Sprite driver for sale

Now SOLD to Jim in VA. Congratulations!

If you are looking for an inexpensive Bugeye Sprite with a recently rebuilt 1275 engine,”Suzy” is an excellent choice. This is an affordable Bugeye that still shines nicely and offers tons of fun.

The car has received tons of new parts courtesy of the prior California owners, who kept the car well-maintained, leading up to installation of a new rebuilt 1275 engine that was added within the last 1000 miles. The transmission shifts nicely with no issues. A spin on oil filter conversion and electronic ignition have already been added. This is a great driver. I have added a photo of the stack of receipts that come with the car that detail history back to about 1993.

The performance exhaust sounds wonderful and new minilight wheels and tires make for a nice ride.

Top is older, but will get you home. Tonneau is excellent (see photos). Original side curtains are included, they will need restoration. The car has a nice custom vinyl divider/screen across the trunk opening, to partition the trunk and keep out any curious spectators. Paint has a few nicks and imperfections, nothing major, shines well, but 10-footer paint work. Presentable cosmetics with 1275 fun driving is the value within this car.

No heater, but we could add one for you. There is some more maintenance you might want us to do before sending the car your way. For example, the horn push and the speedo don’t work. Include a budget of a few thousand for us to go through the car to prepare if for you. Or you can do it yourself.

Give a call if you would like to take Suzy home!
