Great 1960 Austin Healey Bugeyed Sprite Driver for sale

SOLD! Tom and Pam will be enjoying time with Doug on the Maryland shoreline this summer! Another Bugeye owner who dated his now wife in a Bugeye a lifetime ago! Welcome back!

This is “Doug” (AN5L 34829), a mostly stock 1960 Bugeye in Olde English white. Doug is ready for Spring!

We’ve owned this car a few different times so we know Doug well. We have made nice modifications and upgrades for each prior owner. Back in March of 2014 when we had it last, we put on new rear bumpers, LED lights throughout, uprated headlights, a larger rear view mirror, new windshield to body gasket, and a dashboard cigarette lighter (in the original washer hole) as well as a new vintage twin-tip Abarth muffler and new carpet throughout (including in the trunk).

For previous owners, we put in a new petrol tank as well as nice three point retractible seat belts. We also provided new side curtains and a padded pouch, as well as a top pouch to protect the rear window. We also put in a new electronic distributor as well as a handsome wood steering wheel and K & N lifetime air filters. These are all great upgrades which the new owner will enjoy.

The 948 engine and original smooth case transmission are working wonderfully. Larger HS2 carbs have been fit, a great upgrade. The car has Spritely performance (just as intended), with the addition of a wonderful exhaust note, courtesy of the best 948 muffler out there. That Abarth twin tip muffler makes the little 948 engine sound like it’s planning to slay giants. This car proves you don’t have to go fast to have a whole lot of fun. Just making a nice noise is half of that fun.

Indicated mileage is 2665 miles, It was about 1200 in 2014, so the car hasn’t been driven much by the recent owners. Doug shines nicely and the interior is quite good. Dashboard is also very good. The tonneau is good, as is the top. Windows are still new. Original gauges all work.

A front bumper is included but we can remove it if the new owner prefers. The bumper has a bit of patina and isn’t quite as nice as the shiny off-white paint… the bumper can be removed, replaced (we have the parts in stock), or left in place. Bumpers are not required on these cars… it is a chrome accent that some owners love and others prefer to remove.

Doug is showing a few small paint blisters and has acquired a dent in the right front nose. The dent can be fixed and that portion of the car can be repainted for about $750. That said, I would not bother, this is a very nice car with great upgrades that is tons of fun to drive. The interior is quite good and the exhaust note intoxicating. This is the car for someone who doesn’t want perfect cosmetics. If you are thinking of addressing any external cosmetics, you would be smarter to invest in one of our other more expensive cars that already has a superior paint job.

Nearly new top and windows!

So if you are looking for a fun driver with less than perfect cosmetics, Doug is your boy. You can have great fun with this car at a very reasonable price. The car shines quite well and still looks quite impressive.

Give a call or send an email if you want to be Doug’s next steward!

1960 Bugeye Sprite for sale-supercharged temptress!

Now SOLD to Stacy and Trevor in Illinois! Congratulations!!!

A supercharger in a Bugeye is a beautiful thing. You should be able to hear why I feel that way in the video below:

This is AN5L 37194 “Carmine.” This is a wonderful Sprite. It’s a car we have owned twice before and each time we have owned it, we’ve taken it to a new level. This is about the best Bugeye you can buy, given that it is has been fully sorted and upgraded, twice! Each of the prior owners invested in tons of improvements.

The new owner of this car gets the benefit of their loving care. All the choice goodies are already on-board. Our supercharger upgrade in this car includes a new SU 1.75 inch carburetor, K & N lifetime air filter, alternator conversion, locking choke mechanism, aluminum radiator and uprated cooling fan on a recently rebuilt 1275 engine with an uprated new clutch disk, new pressure plate and upgraded rear main seal. The stock tachometer was converted to an electronic mechanism when the alternator was fit, which makes this instrument much more reliable.

Also loaded in the car is a pair of three point retractible seat belts, electronic ignition, battery kill switch hidden in footwell, cigarette lighter for phone charging and accessories, new top, great tonneau, new windows (still unused) and two nice storage bags (one for the top, one for the windows).

At 74,428 miles we fit a rebuilt ribcase transmission, so the synchros in the car are excellent, still virtually new. We also fit new front shocks and completely rebuilt the front end with new king pins and bushings at that time. Indicated mileage now is just 74,711.

Tires and minilight wheels are also new, about one year ago. Upgraded tapered wheel bearings were also installed at that time, as well as a 3.9 differential for improved highway cruising and of course the marvelous Bugeyeguy twin-tipped muffler that sounds so good in the video above. It’s fed through a sweet exhaust header. We also welded-in a new floor pan on the driver’s side prior to the car’s delivery to the last owner, in central Oregon. Front disk brakes are also fit to this car as is a front sway bar, spin on oil filter, LED headlights, significantly brighter LED brake, park and turn signals and a very loud air horn.

It is quite customary for us to upgrade the cars we sell before delivery. This one has already been fully upgraded and is about as close one can get to a turn-key classic car, upgraded for modern life and modern roadways.

Mileage in the past few years has been under 500. Regularly enjoyed. Seldom driven by the last owner, but he was a great steward who enjoyed upgrading this car. And the next person shall smile on all trips to the Post Office… and beyond.

1960 Bugeye Sprite driver for sale

Now SOLD to Jim in VA. Congratulations!

If you are looking for an inexpensive Bugeye Sprite with a recently rebuilt 1275 engine,”Suzy” is an excellent choice. This is an affordable Bugeye that still shines nicely and offers tons of fun.

The car has received tons of new parts courtesy of the prior California owners, who kept the car well-maintained, leading up to installation of a new rebuilt 1275 engine that was added within the last 1000 miles. The transmission shifts nicely with no issues. A spin on oil filter conversion and electronic ignition have already been added. This is a great driver. I have added a photo of the stack of receipts that come with the car that detail history back to about 1993.

The performance exhaust sounds wonderful and new minilight wheels and tires make for a nice ride.

Top is older, but will get you home. Tonneau is excellent (see photos). Original side curtains are included, they will need restoration. The car has a nice custom vinyl divider/screen across the trunk opening, to partition the trunk and keep out any curious spectators. Paint has a few nicks and imperfections, nothing major, shines well, but 10-footer paint work. Presentable cosmetics with 1275 fun driving is the value within this car.

No heater, but we could add one for you. There is some more maintenance you might want us to do before sending the car your way. For example, the horn push and the speedo don’t work. Include a budget of a few thousand for us to go through the car to prepare if for you. Or you can do it yourself.

Give a call if you would like to take Suzy home!

Sweetest of Bugeye Sprites for sale

NOW SOLD to Frank and Mary of New Jersey! Congratulations!!!

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.

Super Trick Little ’60 Bugeye Sprite for sale.

Now sold to Gary in Wisconsin! Congratulations!!!

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.

1960 Austin Healey Bugeye Sprite for sale– Freshly rebuilt 1275 engine and disk brakes!

Here’s an extremely solid Sprite we bought in California. We call it “Berkley,” and she is known to have lived in California for the past 20 years. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn the car has been in dry climate since new. It’s rare to find a Bugeye that has all the original sheet metal underneath like this one, so we can be certain this one has been in nice weather for a good long time.
