Super Trick Little ’60 Bugeye Sprite for sale.

Here’s a very special Sprite.

This is a very cool looking Sprite called “Goldie.” She’s a 948 engine, four-speed car, with drum brakes and has been completely rebuilt with maximum cosmetic “wow” factor. The car is lowered and looks mean!

Below is a video drive of the car from December 2017 when we had just completed building the car. You’ll notice just one Brooklands screen in place, and no head pillow yet…

We bought it a few years ago in pieces and completely restored it and then sold it to a customer who had us upgrade a number of components. For example, we added a custom roll bar and head pillow, hardura non-carpet floor covering, custom tonneau with color matched stitching, performance exhaust and front anti-roll bar. We also added twin Brooklands wind screens and amber Sebring driving lights, which are activated by a toggle switch on the dashboard.

The most recent owner further customized the car and added the racing fuel filler cap, racing lap belts, racing roundels and custom black paint on the license plate light. The roundels are decals and can be removed, as can the speed shop decal on the back and the nuts sticker on the dash. But I like the hot rodder style and fun, so we left all the stickers in place. The new owner can decide to leave them or have them removed. The racing stripes and rocker panels are painted black, so these will stay.

The car is super solid throughout, as the floors have been repaired with factory floor pans. There is no rust. And she is a joy to drive, tons of fun, with a sweet exhaust note.

The little 948 engine packs a punch. The car is a joy to drive and a fun tribute to the era when Sprites were not too precious to be customized. The next steward can take it even further, or enjoy this fun car just how it sits. Call or email to discuss adopting Goldie! PS the car is titled as a 1961, but we all know that no Bugeyes were made in 1961, it was merely first registered in that year.

Build your own Bugeye

Who wants the Bugeye of their dreams? This car is just back from a four-month long body restoration and is freshly clad in Olde English White. Don’t be fooled by the green workshop wheels and tires… this car will be fully fit with the best we have, once we dig in to the project.

But what parts shall we use? Would you like a supercharged five speed? Completely stock re-creation? Electric conversion? Chopped windshield vintage racer tribute? Call if you want us to build out this Sprite for you.

We have a lot of projects in the works, so we’ll put this car aside for a while while we wait to see if one of you readers would like to adopt this car and have us build it to your specs. If no one steps forward, we’ll build this car into something special, and offer it for sale once complete, here on our site.

If you are looking for the best value, “Berkley” is a green 1275-powered Bugeye with disk brakes in the next post, which can be purchased for $19,995. It’s always more economical to purchase an already-built car. Call if you would like to learn more about acquiring your own Bugeye this Spring.

Restored 1960 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite!

Meet “Yellow”, a 1960 Sprite (AN5L 36149) that was completely restored about ten years ago. The car was built to look completely stock, right down to the bias-ply wide white wall tires. I also like the vintage Lucas headlights.

42,986 miles show on the clock. New footwell floor pans were installed during the restoration. The body is quite solid. The paint still looks great. Interior is great too!

This is a great car for anyone who wants a mostly stock Bugeye, fit with the original 948 engine and transmission. Front disk brakes were added during the restoration and this is a nice upgrade. A period ammeter also adorns the dashboard. The fuel pump was upgraded to an electric unit. The car is also fit with a period exhaust header. Otherwise, the car is completely stock, with the original 948 engine and stock carburetors. We just changed the clutch kit, which had been slipping.

A new top and good top bow is included, which was never fit to the car (we can fit it for you). A nice tonneau is present (as shown in the photos), along with original side curtains that need restoration. Original jack is included, along with a good original spare. The boot looks nice with the correct factory inner fiber board panels.

She’s a joy to drive, clean and shiny, and a very solid car. Please send an email or call if you would like to own this car!
