This week, I would like to spotlight three Bugeyes currently in our inventory which are my personal favorites and which any Bugeye hunter should really like. Each of these fabulous Frogeyes is looking for its next caretaker! Call us today if you are contemplating a new ride!
All three of these have been upgraded in our shop for prior owners, so you get the benefit of our experience from the hundreds of Bugeyes that have come before. You also get a long list of now depreciated improvements, courtesy of the prior owner. Thus, each of these cars would cost significantly more than the current asking price if you had to pay for the improvements that are already now built-in to these cars. Remember, most of the generic classic cars you see online for sale will come to you with a lengthy punch list. Our job is to eradicate that punch list before delivery, to save you the headaches. These three cars have already had their punch lists (largely) eradicated!
This yellow beauty is a Sprite named “Sharpie” (AN5L 27824). We call this Bugeye “Sharpie” because it was actually last owned by none other than Bob Sharp. If you’re unfamiliar, Bob was a Datsun dealer here in Connecticut for many years, and he owned Paul Newman’s Trans-Am racing team. Sharpie has undergone some upgrades recently. We put in all-new wheel cylinders to restore the drum brakes to their peak performance, and replaced the radius arms to make the car ride more smoothly. Price reduced! $29,995.
“Mahoney” (AN5L 19886) is the perfect Bugeye cruiser. This is a 948-powered car, with front disk brakes and upgraded wheels, and you’ll find this Bugeye great fun to drive. We have had the privilege of working on this one a few times for the prior owner, and we’ve repaired and upgraded this car with a new four-speed transmission, so the new owner can now jump in and enjoy it. A different white Bugeye you might find online could look similar, but too often that other car will need upgrades like the ones already done to this car. This one was fully sorted in our shop for the prior owner. This one is available for $29,995.
This is “Eggplant” (AN5L 49187), a Bugeye built in late 1960 (near the end of production) and titled as a 1961. The car was originally red and was completely stripped to bare metal in 1999. She was then painted this very deep and luscious color of aubergine. She shines beautifully!
Eggplant has a 1275 engine and just about every drivability upgrade we offer already installed as well as several cosmetic improvements and is ready to drive anywhere TODAY and win shows!
Eggplant is a deep shade of purple; in the sun, she brightens into an absolutely breathtaking hue, one you need to see to believe! It looks even more beautiful with its chrome wire wheels! Eggplant can be yours for the reduced price of $37,995.
