NOW SOLD! Congratulations, Doc for giving out 340th Bugeye a new home!
This is a 1959 Bugeye we call “Speedy,” (AN5L 6752). This is a 948cc powered car, with the original engine, transmission and front and rear drum brakes.
The car comes with an original Speedcraft Enterprises badge on the back, from Exton PA. Turns out this was BMC dealer when Bugeyes were new (it moved to Devon, PA in 1966). It is thus quite likely that Speedcraft was the original dealership where this car was first purchased when new!
This is a mostly stock Bugeye that was restored in 2017, with new hardura mats, new green custom tonneau, new seats and this week, a new dashboard and dash trim bar cover. The result is stunning, and this Bugeye has a really nice combination of great colors and details to make this car a winner.
What I love about this one is that it feels just right without being over the top.The paint is great and the car makes a bold statement. It’s very solid underneath.The interior is extremely nice, with premium hardura mats recently installed and a new restored dashboard (you spend all your time in the cockpit so it might as well be superb!). The hood badge has a beautiful patina. The engine bay is weathered but the mechanicals are in fine shape. Overall, this is (for many) the perfect Bugeye…. period accuracy and patina… superb and very popular color scheme… mostly accurate stock equipment… tasteful interior upgrades… all making for a very nice package.
We’ve just installed new steering rack boots and tie rod ends. The top is weathered and should be replaced. Tires are older. Good sidecurtain cores for restoration are included. The prior owner had this car for about 30 years. Give a call if you would like Speedy delivered to your door!
