CHECK OUT OUR SELECTION OF PREPARED BUGEYES (AND NON-BUGEYES) FOR SALE BELOW!

1960 MGA for sale, great solid driver!

NOW SOLD! Congratulations Tom! California bound!

I love MGAs, and we have had many of them. They are a great value, and they look like a million bucks. They’re bigger than a Bugeye with more “classic” than “cuteness” appeal.

This is a really nice one to own. It has lived since 1976 in dry South Carolina and it shows. The frame shows no rust, and the rockers are excellent. This car is solid and sound. It was re-painted once in 1982, and the finish is still holding up quite nicely. The car received a complete mechanical upgrade recently, with a rebuilt engine, new steering rack, new clutch slave cylinder, new rear wheel cylinders and all new hoses. Receipts are included.

The car has been driven very little in the last 10 or so years, with just 500 miles since the major mechanical restoration. The top is quite good, as are the side curtains and tonneau.

Anyone can jump into this car and go. The transmission is in excellent shape, with great synchros and no up or downshifting issues.


Tires and exhaust are older, and the new owner may choose to have us upgrade these before the car departs. Still, it’s a great car to drive, with just a few minor cosmetic flaws, quite natural for a car of this vintage.

Call to discuss… we have kept the price down to acknowledge it’s not a fresh cosmetic restoration, but by the same token, this is a strong running car with thousands recently invested in an engine rebuild and it has all its weather gear, a 1600 engine and disk brakes which make this one of the more desirable of the MGA series. Drive this car anywhere, with no apologies. It’s perfect for anyone who wants shiny and sexy classic car for under $20k that you don’t have to be afraid to drive. This car will turn heads everywhere!

1974 MGB GT for sale- One of the best values in classic cars today!

Now sold and congratulations to Steve! Iowa bound!

I just love the MGB GT. I have one in my little collection… the hatchback allows me to carry my bicycle in the back and the car looks like a baby Aston Martin, for several hundred thousand dollars less. These cars remain one of the best values in collectible cars ever. These chrome bumper cars still look very vintage, and they will elevate just about anyone’s image. You can have this well-sorted example for just $12,995.

This particular car is just about perfect in my book. The rust has been cut out, new metal was welded in place, the car has been repainted in the correct color, the seats were replaced with new leather ones and the steering wheel is uprated. The dash is excellent. The whole car is excellent. The air filters are improved lifetime K and N brand and the car runs nicely. Tube shocks are present in the back, and on this car, that’s a nice upgrade from the original lever shocks. A lifetime stainless steel exhaust system has been fit. Relays have been added for the headlights to reduce the load on the the headlight switch, a nice way to upgrade the electrical system on these cars. There is a large file of receipts for work done by others.

It’s ready to drive anywhere.

The car sports its original 1800 engine and four speed fully synchronized transmission. A single 12 volt battery has been fit in one of the lockers to replace the six volt batteries that would have come with the car.( a common upgrade). Stainless steel exhaust has been fit, as have new front springs, poly bushings and (I believe) a slightly larger sway bar because the handling is great. Headlight relays have also been fit, a great electrical system upgrade.

The interior is quite nice, I will get more photos next week in better light to showcase the condition.

1974 was the last year for chrome bumpers, in fact, late ’74 cars were changed completely to the taller rubber bumper style (or lack thereof).

It is not immaculate, the car has been driven… it is not a recent rotisserie restoration. Instead it’s a solid car that looks great and that you could make your daily driver and actually get where you are going. This is the one car I would own if I wanted an inexpensive sports car I had to live with day in and day out. Shows 32,045 miles on the clock.

Great value, shade from the sun and tons of fun! Click “read more” to see the photo album! [Read more…]

2005 Porsche 911 S 6-speed for sale with just 7200 miles!

NOW ON DEPOSIT- Congratulations Lin!

Bugeyes and Porsches go together quite nicely. Many of our English car customers over the years have also collected 911s of all vintages and Porsches often make a cameo appearance in conversations with our customers. My dad had three different 911s while I was a kid, which left a life-long imprint on me too. Thus it seems only natural to list this car here, in case some of our Bugeye lovers would also like to add a nearly new Porsche to their stable.

It’s hard not to love this car. It is lightning fast, handles amazingly well, has tons of style, and is beautifully crafted. It’s also extremely comfortable for people of all shapes and sizes, fully adjustable and easy to drive with excellent visibility (not the case with all my mid-engined supercar favorites-most have next to no rearward visibility). This is a car you can comfortably drive fast or slow, and actually see outward sufficiently to parallel park it when you are done.

This is a spectacular low mileage and immaculate example, which has been proven to be the best choice in any category if you are looking for investment grade vehicle. Prices for all 911s have been very strong of late. A great low mileage 997 would seem a smart investment that you can enjoy as it appreciates.


I am selling this car for the estate of deceased original owner, a car collector who also had a Bugeye (which I bought). This car has under 7200 miles and is immaculate in every way. The car looks and feels like a brand new Porsche and still smells like new leather (it has the full supple leather option, see window sticker below). The battery is new (from May of 2017). Everything else is original to the car, it hasn’t needed anything. (remember, it only has 7200 miles). The Porsche dealer in Hartford (Hoffman) has serviced the car. It has had a few oil changes (last one at 3580 miles) and the “purge fan” recall done but has mostly just sat in the heated warehouse of a collector with many vehicles and motorcycles.

There was one scrape on the front bumper cover from a garage mishap, so I had the front bumper cover repainted last month to bring the bumper cover back up to the as new condition of the rest of the car. It’s now perfect with no curb scrapes underneath, and no scratches or stone chips. The paint matches perfectly. The seat bolsters shows no wear, as you would expect from such a low mileage car.

If you like low mileage nearly new Porsches, you’ll love this one, it’s hard to walk away from this car without admiring it over your shoulder. The vin number is WPOAB29935S741315. The engine number is M97/0168504777

Check out the photos, and feel free to call for more information. The car is priced at $49,995

Bugeyeguy-Ten Year Anniversary Celebration-Sale!

Wow, what a fast-paced ride!


We never imagined when we started Bugeyeguy in 2007 that we would sell 207 Bugeyes in the next ten years (which we believe to be more than anyone has ever sold). Or that we would become a national service center with cars coming to us from all over the country for upgrades and modifications. Or that we would build Caitlyn Jenner’s Bugeye, perhaps the most publicized Sprite in modern times. Our national gold concours car was perhaps the most difficult and fulfilling project. Fuel injected cars have broadened our skills. Custom leather work and stitching is now routine in our Quonset hut loft. Our catalog provides a great resource for brand new and long-time Bugeye owners worldwide. Our YouTube videos have been viewed almost two million times.

Thank you!

It has been a great adventure. And we are excited about what lies ahead.
Our new foundation for our back yard addition is finished. Soon our new building will be erected and we will have more space to be of service. Let’s celebrate with some great deals on a few of the classics we have in stock:

NOW SOLD for $15,495! Congratulations Tom! We’ll be sending this one to San Diego! 1973 Triumph TR6-I’ve further reduced the price of this great Triumph -This is a killer deal on a car that has had thousands spent by the last owner, from new interior pieces to a brand new clutch, you can’t go wrong with this classic car that never goes out of style

1969 MGC-Price reduced to $29,995… It’s rare that I sell cars from my personal collection-remember, this is a car that I kept for four years because it is such a rare find in terms of rarity, uniqueness, originality, condition and color combination! I have the chance to keep lots of cars, and only hold the best of the best. This is one of those examples, which I am selling to make space as we transition into our new facility. Someone is going to get a great deal on a very interesting classic car, with roll-up windows and overdrive!

NOW SOLD and heading to Virginia, Congratulations Dave! 1963 Austin Healey Sprite-Price reduced to $4,995. Another killer deal-this is a complete kit with all the hard body work and rust repair complete. Thousands were spent upgrading the front brakes to disk and laying-on an excellent paint job. This is a fun project ready to ship. If you are looking for a mechanical assembly project, this is worth serious consideration, with all the dirty grinding, sanding and bodywork already done, and done well!

1971 Volvo 1800E-Price reduced to $16,495. Click to enlarge the new photo at left-no scratches or dings, very shiny, strong paint work. I never get tired of looking at the unique shape of the 1800, I love the rear fins and the lines of this car. There’s nothing quite like it anywhere on the road. This is a lot of classic for the money. It runs beautifully with fuel injection, the overdrive works every time and this car looks fantastic in British Racing Green. I am seeing great sale numbers on these cars in the marketplace but more importantly, I can’t believe the market for these will ever go down, so here’s a chance to own a very interesting car with minimal (if any) downside, and great potential upside.

Call if you want to take one of these home! We can help ship any car right to your door!

64K mile 1971 Volvo P1800E for sale, overdrive!


NOW SOLD TO STEVE IN THE ROCKIES! Way to go!

This Volvo P1800 #184363034961 has just 64,000 miles and drives wonderfully, with a four speed transmission, aftermarket sunroof and factory electric overdrive. It has the original engine and fuel injection, and starts and runs beautifully. It was driven sporadically by the last owner who had the car since about 2000, when receipts place mileage at about 60,000. Thus the car has traveled just 4000 miles in the last 17 years. All service records are included since that time and the car was maintained with no expense spared to keep the car in excellent mechanical shape. Note the recent new front brake calipers and brake lines.

I bought this car for my personal collection. It’s solid and I love the lines of this striking and unusual classic. I just haven’t had time to enjoy it, and since I need the space, I have decided to pass this one on to someone who enjoy it.

The car was repainted dark green over the original code 104 turquoise. The paint is very good and shines beautifully. Chrome and trim is also in very nice condition. The engine bay is very clean and the underside is nice and solid. Overdrive works nicely. This car is a lot of fun to drive.

This car presents beautifully! The interior would be the next place to invest in restoration, although it is quite serviceable as is. There are a few cracks in replacement ABS dash board cover, so one might remove the dash and recover it with the original pad, which is easily available. The seats and foam are also older, which makes this car a candidate for seat restoration. All those interior parts are readily available from vintage Volvo parts specialists.

The exterior of the car looks so good and it runs so well, in many ways this is the ideal car that allows you to restore the interior at your own pace while you enjoy it. Or drive it as is, but either way, the body is nice and the car looks great. The price is $16,495. I can’t think of many classic cars this unique, this head-turning, (with overdrive and fuel injection) for this price!

1952 MGTD for sale, no malware!

Our website just took a full sick day due to malware. As I reflect this unexpected intrusion, my mind wanders to the white 1952 MGTD we have just revived (seen at left in an alternate universe), which seems the appropriate antidote to a stressful day fending off invasive bots. If you are reading this, it means the humans I contracted (with their team of helpful bots) have successfully reactivated our website, for a fee perhaps about equal to the MSRP of a new MGTD in 1952.

Why is the MGTD relevant in this age of servers and web hosts? This car is very basic. So basic, in fact, that one feels in a TD like they are riding a horse (that’s a complement) because life in this car becomes very simple. The ride is smooth, while not plush. The entire experience is well-damped by a wood and steel structure. 57 Horsepower seems just fine to me as malicious code invades my database and root files (whatever they are). All I really want to do right now is emerge from the mist on the moors with perfect patina. I love technology and the web and our modern computing power makes our business possible. But TD motoring remains a precious reminder of something that we once were.

This white TD pictured here last rolled under its own power when Hip Hop was not even a glint in the eye of Disco, and the former owner might have been heard humming Bee Gees riffs (“Stayin Alive, Stayin Alive?”) as his bell bottoms hustled the pedals of these wooden floor boards, last in 1982. We rescued this car out of its 35 year slumber for a new owner in Maryland and the car is now just about ready to depart for its new home.


To be fair, this car did have some malware of it’s own under the bonnet after our mechanical restoration… in the photo above you can see Russ scanning the fuel filter and purging all the malicious crud that populated this car’s memory, that is to say, there was still a little residual junk in the tank after we removed, boiled, blasted, soaked and cleaned the 35 years of debris out of the fuel tank. We apparently left just one fuel filter full of nastiness in the tank, which promptly filled the filter and shut off the car, which might have ruined my nice motoring experience were it not for Shawn, the 12-year old who lives up the street, who was happy to push me back to the shop. “Just like pushing the blocking sled at football practice,” he said.

And so with a new fuel filter now installed, the TD is ready, waiting only for the new steering wheel to arrive to replace the wire hoop that is all we have left of the original wheel.

If you like this sort of thing, we are selling another 1952 MGTD, this one a green in nicer cosmetic shape, fully restored about ten years ago. I owned this green TD twice before, and sold it to two different great customers who loved and respected this car. Scott has asked me to sell it for him now on consignment. You can see it in an older post linked here. The car still looks identical to what you see in the photos and videos, as it has only spent most of intervening time nestled in Scott’s very nice garage in Rhode Island.

It’s an excellent, capable and sorted TD we are selling for $22,995, so you too can enjoy next time your (bug)iPhone seizes, your antivirus software is out of date and tech support for your devices means a conversation with someone halfway around the world who you would love to talk with to hear about life in a foreign land, but when it comes to fixing your phone or television, somehow something just seems missing.

MGTDs are here to fix all that…
