Restored, upgraded and sorted 1960 primrose Bugeye Sprite for sale!

NOW SOLD to Peter from New Jersey! Congratulations!!!

If you are looking for a completely restored and upgraded 1275 and disk brake-equipped Bugeye (that still looks stock), this is a great choice!

This is “Donovan,” (AN5L 32516). In 2012, we completely restored this car with great upgrades, and then sent it in 2013 to South Carolina, where is has lived with a customer since. He’s put just 400 miles on the car since 2013, and so when he offered it to me, I was delighted to have the car back so I could offer it here. It’s still like a newly restored Bugeye, and someone is going to get a very nice car loaded with smart upgrades.

This car was stripped and painted and the build includes impressive add-ons which will make the new owner quite happy.

This includes a rebuilt 1275 engine, rebuilt transmission, front disk brake upgrade, electronic ignition in a new distributor, spin on oil filter, K and N lifetime air filters, front sway bar, air horn, new shocks, LED brake lights, rebuilt carbs, electronic fuel pump, exhaust header and stainless muffler.

The interior is loaded with new parts including new panels, carpet, seats and cover, door liners, door gaskets and the dashboard was removed, welded up and filled to make a nice flat surface for the new vinyl covering. The dashboard is beautiful, with everything in the correct place just as it left the factory. Then we polished the cockpit trim and powder coated the windshield assembly.


You can see the new carpet below, now protected by rubber footwell mats.

There’s too much to list, but there is a new top and sidecurtains in protective pouches and a nice tonneau. Three point retractable seat belts are installed, each buckle with a custom cloisonné emblem attached to the buckle. There’s a hidden cigarette lighter/accessory plug and trickle charger hard wired too.

The last owner spent generously on this car to make it wonderful, and now you can enjoy a car that has been thoroughly sorted in our shop. It’s a good one.

Give a call if you want to take Donovan home!
