Sweetest of Bugeye Sprites for sale

This 1959 Sprite is AN5L 10904. It’s a fully restored beauty, and we call it “Vanilla.” The Olde English white looks right, it’s warm, and stunning with a smart wine red restored interior. This car has the original 948 engine and front drum brakes, just like when it left the factory.

This car was very lucky, as it had $40,590 in restoration work done by a shop in Texas. That work was completed in March of 2011. It was an exhaustive project, and everything was replaced or renewed. 

The engine was rebuilt, as was everything else. The complete 12 page invoice is included in the gallery below. You’ll find an amazing list of repairs was done to give this car a new lease on life. Mostly stock parts were used in the restoration, although a stainless steel exhaust was fitted. Everything works. Nice to see a correct new wiring harness was also installed at that time.

The car mostly sat since the restoration, and we have gone through the car and refreshed the hydraulics to bring the car up to speed. Now the car is ready for a lucky new owner.

I love the period rear nerf bar. It offers some additional ding protection for the rear end. But if you prefer, we can remove that assembly, and replace the bumper overriders with new ones.

Full weather gear is included, the windows need restoration and the top is old but works. I would be inclined to mount a new deep red top (which we can do for the new owner). That top would match the handsome new tonneau fit to the car.

Give a call or email if you would like to discuss making “Vanilla” your car! This one is a winner.

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!
