Alas, health challenges have (for the moment) prevented another Bugeye from traveling out into the world, and this is just one more reminder that time is short!
Pickle will no longer be traveling to a new home in Washington, and that means someone else can enjoy this completely sorted Leaf Green machine. The new owner of Pickle gets the benefit of a recent multi-month sorting project in our shop, without the wait and at a depreciated price, so this is a unique opportunity, call if interested!
If you want a fully sorted Bugeye, look no further!
AN5L 15320 “Pickle” is a 1959 Leaf Green Bugeye that has just undergone about 150 different improvements in our shop. Last fall we completed the build-out for a customer in Oklahoma and shipped him the car. He put very few miles on it and now wants to move in a new direction, which means the car is available once again for a new owner who doesn’t want to hassle with any improvements or upgrades.
We’ve already done them all for you!
Just about every good option has been added. We started with a rebuilt 1275 engine and a big brake twin piston caliper front disk brake upgrade. Add to that new 165 tires, lifetime K&N air filters, new front and rear shocks, new radius bushings, new aluminum radiator, front sway bar, new fuel tank, leather upgraded steering wheel, three point seat belts, twin-tipped exhaust, tapered front wheel bearings, bigger dash mirror, bikini top, LED lights, tri bar headlights with LED bulbs, long tonneau in matching off-white, tonneau bag, aluminum threshold covers, new rear wheel cylinders, LED gauge lights, Sebring nose lights, cigarette lighter, new door pockets, new rear brake drums, electronic tachometer conversion, alternator kit, slave cylinder, steering column bushings and a whole lot more. Everything has been checked and rechecked. This is a car that is truly turnkey.
Located in Norman Oklahoma, we have not yet shipped it back to our shop, but if you are close to that area, that works great, and feel free to call so we can tell you more.
No expense was spared to build out this car, so it is not cheap, we have the build sheet that documents about $20,000 in improvements alone. But if you want the latest build from our workshop without the wait, Pickle should be a serious contender.
The small pictures were all taken this week in Oklahoma, where the car currently resides. The larger pictures were taken in our shop last fall before the car left for Oklahoma. Pickle may come back to Connecticut if we don’t find a buyer already in that region in the coming week or so. If you are near Norman, the car is available for viewing there.
Call if you would like to hear more!
