Here’s a Bugeye that has been extensively restored. The workmanship is excellent throughout. AN5L 25972 is a Bugeye we call “Dora.” She was the subject of an extensive investment about 15 years ago.
The body is very straight and the floors were extremely well restored. The interior is very well crafted, with leather covering on the dash, and nearly new Miata seats also installed.
These seats are extremely comfortable and supportive. They are lightyears more plush than the originals. They are ideal for anyone under 5’7″ who wants more comfort. It’s nice to have a headrest too. The thicker and more comfortable seats take up more space, which is why they are best for shorter drivers.
If you are a purist, we can remove the Miata seats and build up stock ones in tan with red piping. It’s all up to the new owner
The underside was completely restored at that time and the workmanship is top shelf.
The interior is also excellent. Everything is well executed. Note the spare tire cover and carpeted filler neck in the trunk. These small details best demonstrate the care that went into this restoration.
The car body is also “de-beaded,” and this is a very nice look, extremely well done. Fender beading is original, but the cars look more upscale when it is removed.
The 948 engine is strong and runs great. The four speed gearbox is also excellent. We have put in a new electronic fuel pump and changed many hydraulic parts to make the car more reliable.
Top and windows are in nearly new condition. There’s even a custom tonneau that is built to accommodate the headrests.
There is a lot to love about Dora. We have her priced at $21,995. Call or email if you are interested!
