How nice of George to send us his old friend for a complete makeover… and he won’t recognize this one when it comes home to Indiana. George has been through many life phases with this car since 1965, but the car fell dormant and we were lucky enough to bring it back to life. After about 250 improvements, the car is now delightful and back on the road stronger than ever! Take a video tour below!
This car needed floors and a complete new interior, plus a new engine and transmission. We upgraded all four wheels to disk brakes, added a supercharger and put in a new twin- tipped exhaust system. (You can find all these items in our catalog, or we’ll be happy to pick up your car anywhere in America and transform it, just as we did with this one.)
I am in love with the supercharger, and I get really excited when the boost comes on in third gear pulling up a hill, as you can see in the video. I never tire of that boosted feeling, especially from a sixty year-old classic car.
Rarely will a car need one of everything, but in the case of this Bugeye, it was overdue for a complete overhaul. Now, this car is ready for another 60 years!
Thank you for the opportunity, George and Anita, and wishing you a great toast on your next picnic!
