This is a car we call “Midnight” (AN5L 8136), a 948-powered, Ford five-speed Bugeye we are pleased to offer! We last sold Midnight in February of 2018 to its last owner in Arizona, where it has enjoyed its last 5 years in the sun, and now its back in Connecticut, ready to meet you!
We performed thousands of dollars worth of upgrades for the prior owner before we shipped it to them in 2018. The list is pretty extensive, and includes one of our exclusive ignition guillotines, three-point retractable seat belts, LED parking and brake lights, a new custom white tonneau and bikini top, top, side curtain, and top bow bags, tri-bar headlights, new door seals, and more!
In addition to these cosmetic improvements, Midnight was also provided with a vast array of mechanical upgrades, which include tapered front wheel bearings, an aluminum radiator, a new electronic distributor, new fuel tank, fuel line, and new isolators for the electric fuel pump, new front sway bar, steering column bushings, swivel axle bushings, new rack boots and tie rod ends, new upgraded front shocks, a rear main seal upgrade kit, and of course, the ultimate upgrade, a five-speed transmission with a brand new clutch to match![Read more…] about Sleek and sporty black 1959 5-speed Bugeye For Sale!
