1952 MGTD, great restoration, great driver!

Now sold!Congratulations Carol!

New photos! New video! New Steering wheel! New driving lights! New needles and seats and carb tune-up. Starts the first time and drives great!

If you are looking for an inexpensive way to have a whole lot of British car fun, check out this timeless classic and call!

I’ve owned this particular car several times and just bought it back from my buddy Scott, who has had it for the past 5 years and drove it very little (has has about 12 other classics). When he sold his house and offered me the car, I jumped on the opportunity. He takes great care of his cars, as evidenced by the new powdercoating he added to the rims. They look perfect, and are quite durable with this new skin.

The car was fully restored with a custom engine turned dashboard that looks stunning. New tonneau, great radial tires, and just a blast to drive. Not a rickety-bias-ply ride, but instead a real sportscar that rides on smooth radials. Great handling, great ride and great fun! Super clean-especially in the engine bay. Also has a spin on oil filter conversion to simplify service.

The car shines nicely and looks stunning. There is no rust and there are no dings. The engine runs great and was completely rebuilt less than five thousand miles ago. Call with questions or for more information.

This is a vintage roadster that is tons of fun, with a whole lot of style and grace for not a lot of money.

Drive-by video below! (note: some microphone distortion due to low-tech old camera, but engine sounds great!) GoPro video is above, that allows you to hear the great run quality.

1950 F1 Pick up for sale

Now sold to Jason in Texas! Congratulations!

New pictures posted! Someone asked about the condition of the cab corners… these were patched with new sheet metal as needed when the truck was repainted. We have shown in photos how nicely a magnet adheres, in case anyone was worried about body filler. (There is none.)

If you were going to have TWO perfect cars in your garage, one would of course be a Bugeye and the other might just be this handsome green truck. They complement each other so nicely.

This is a friend’s truck. He bought it in Ohio about 30 years ago and has garaged it in CT ever since. It shows about 64,000 miles, and that feels like the original mileage given the unmolested condition. The truck is just right in about every way… if is nice enough to show and impress yet used enough that you can still haul stuff without fear of damage. The bed has a few nicks and scratches yet the cab and overall finish is as clean and tidy as a well pressed denim work shirt.

She was repainted once in the original color about 25 years ago. Interior was restored at about the same time. Now it’s perfectly worn-in.

We have just replaced all the brake parts and pinion seal. The flathead V8 is strong. Fit with the original three speed transmission. Everything works, fun to drive and a serious head-turner.

You can find newly restored and modified trucks. You can find beat-to-death trucks. One in this condition seems quite rare. While some restoration work has been done, this one feels like the perfect original truck you found in your grandfather’s barn in Iowa that was ready for you to drive home, use and enjoy.

Price is $23,995. Call if you would like more pictures or information.

Striking 1961 Triumph TR3A for sale

NOW SOLD TO Larry in Georgia! Congratulations Larry!

NEW THIS WEEK! A few great repairs and a great driving video! Click below to ride along in this nice Tr3!

FIXED! There was a small rusted section of frame on this car-we have cut out that rust and replaced the frame section with new sheet metal. Tom drove the car with the frame like it was for the past 40 years without issue, but now it’s fixed right, and the car is stronger than new! No more underside issues!

There’s a small picture at left-you can see how we cut back a section of frame to get rid of any rust and welded in the new section (in black). You can see more pictures in the gallery-we spliced in a correct new steel frame section to restore this car for the next 40 years! The welds were ground smooth and the section was sealed and painted black. Also new this week-we completely rebuilt the original speedometer and tachometer and put in new cables so that the gauges are now also good as new!

Here’s a different kind of “Bugeye.”

TR3s are a blast, and this one is a perfect driver that just about any British car lover will thoroughly enjoy. We just got the car from the 40 year owner, who traded it for the Bugeye “Luigi.” He was ready for a change. (But this car will blow Luigi away.) Tr3s are quick! Indicated mileage is 56,032

TS73540L is a superb driver. The paint shines beautifully. It’s about a 40 year old paint job, and you would never know it because the car looks quite good. Originally Yellow, the car was repainted red just before the last owner took possession in 1978.

We have all the original ownership history, including the original title From June of 1961 when one Linda Hoyt of Darien, CT purchased the car new from International Motors of White Plains, NY. She then sold the car to Joe Mauro of Stamford, CT on September, 30 1972. He sold it on August 1, 1975 to John Anzalone of Southbury, CT, who sold it to Robert Milford of Woodbury, CT on 2/12/77, who then sold it to Tom, the most recent owner, in 1978. Five owners since new. Wilford rebuilt the engine and painted the car, says Tom. The paint has held-up incredibly well!

It’s easy to see why Tom kept this car for more than 40 years. It’s a perfect sports car, rugged, windy and very sexy with an awesome exhaust note. These cars are like tractors, they just seem bulletproof. And this one’s a pisser to drive.

The top is nice, no tonneau, worn side curtains. The engine is strong, with great oil pressure. Disk brakes up front, as stock. Four speed non-overdrive transmission. Solid body. No visible damage anywhere, nice straight lines. Spare tire well is quite clean. The car needs very little and you can drive it anywhere. Paint is older but no crazing anywhere, it was a good job. This is a car you don’t have to worry about. The interior shows a little wear, like a nice but slightly worn pair of blue jeans. Yet the overall appearance will stun everyone, no matter where you go. It looks that great.

Call or email if you want to make this great sportscar your own!

Excellent 1960 Austin Healey 3000 Mark 1 BT7 for sale

Now sold to Dan in Atlanta! Happy Birthday Dan!

The sound below is the only sound you need to hear today. NOTHING sounds like a big Healey. Click on the video below and see if you agree. This is a stunning car we have ready for Spring. Turn up the volume and click below!

This 1960 3000 MK 1 BT7 (HBT7L 7549) is a drives beautifully and it’s a cosmetic stunner!

This stunning car is available now for $44,995.

It’s a very sharp restored car that you can drive anywhere. The new chrome exhaust system looks great and roars! The car has also been fit with an upgraded high output starter and spin on oil filter kit, nice additions! We have completely gone through the car, put in a new clutch, replaced the driver’s seat foam to restore the leather seat bottom and fully serviced the brakes.
The body is excellent. The door gaps are all great and this car is ready to drive! The rockers are nicely restored and so are the outriggers and trunk floor. The floor pans are solid. The restoration was done about 20 years ago and the car still looks fresh.

The car has been driven so the underside is not as tidy as you’d find on a car that has been trailered to shows… but this is a car you can drive, without fear that a passing rain shower will ruin your entire weekend, and require hours of underside cleaning.

She starts right up and wants to roll. A great tonneau, windows and top are included (see photo album). The trunk is well-stocked with knock off wire wheel hammer and a spare tube underneath the spare tire. The blue pouch holds a car cover. Take this car on a trip this weekend!

It’s the perfect classic car… use it and enjoy it, and show it and blow people away. She’s nice enough to show yet well-sorted and ready to drive.

The car shows 724 miles. Anyone lusting after the sensual curves of a big Healey will love this car. Call if you would like more details!

We sold this sweet 356 to Phil in Florida early in 2016. Now he’s ready to trade for something new, and has asked us to list the car here. The car is currently located in Florida, where Phil has made it even better with cosmetic and mechanical improvements. If you are interested, please contact us for pricing and more information at 203-561-6929.

Here’s a wonderful Porsche full of Bugeye personality. This very well-restored 1963 Porsche 356B is elegant and sophisticated, a stylish gentleman compared to a rugged and toss-able nimble Sprite. These sold for about $4,200 when new compared to the Bugeye’s $1,795 new price, so of course, everything is quite different. The interior is more luxurious, the car is quieter and simply more elegant while retaining great sports car fun, racing heritage and service simplicity. The 356 is full of personality and lovable curves, just like a Bugeye and that’s why I like it so much. And the car is tons of fun to drive and admire. Everyone needs one of each.
