Looking for a great Bugeye project?
If so, this is AN5L 39735 and worth a serious look. This is a 1960 Bugeye (first titled in 1961) and long time Arizona car that has enjoyed a long life in the desert southwest, and while there is a lot of work to do, it’s in much more solid condition than most of the project cars that we encounter. It’s all apart and ready for a passionate restorer to dive-in. We’re excited to help bring another Sprite back onto the road .
She was disassembled about five years ago. Due to a death in the family, the project has sat idle for four years and is now available for completion and assembly with a clear Arizona title.
There is one small hole at the front of the rocker panel as well as one in the driver side “a” pillar. You can see those issues in the photo above. So you can expect to do some body restoration but it mostly appears to be a very solid car. And it comes with an original hardtop (and all the spares shown in the photos).
The engine is disassembled and there were also a few extra engine parts from other sprites so the parts inventory is good. Original seats are also included as shown. If you’re in the Phoenix area and you have a trailer, this is an exciting project. It will take some work to load it from its current location (where it’s been sitting for the last four years) but you can drive a trailer right up alongside, with good access. You’ll be rewarded with a very rebuildable Sprite that will come back to life under your supervision! And remember, we have any parts that might be missing in our parts catalog, so you can make this restoration wonderful.
The car comes with the title and bill of sale in the seller’s name so you’ll have no problem registering this car anywhere in the world but it is not a roller so you will need to have a trailer and some muscle to move it out of its present location and back to your shop. Sorry the pictures aren’t great, but this is all we have available since the car is not at our facility. Feel free to call with questions!
