This is a AN5L 48202, a 1960 Bugeye Sprite we call “Bart”, and this is the car you want if you’re into auto crossing (or lots of grip on the street). Bart is fit with a 185/60 X 13 Yokohama tires for extra grip, as well as a strong 1275 engine with exhaust header and downdraft Weber carburetor.
All good fun!
The car has a flip-forward fiberglass nose with matching fiberglass flares fit on the original rear steel fenders. Two flush dzus fittings hold down each bonnet wing for a nifty bonnet hold down system.
Bart includes a top that fits well and a one-piece top bow, which isn’t the easiest to stow in a car fitted with a roll bar, but we have two-piece bows available for purchase if you’re interested!
We just got the car into our shop and have some sorting to do for the new owner, but wanted to list the car for all to see. There are a few minor cosmetic flaws but the car presents very nicely.
Call or email if interested!
