This is “Luke,” a 1959 Bugeye with all the best modifications. This one has a 1275 engine, Rivergate Datsun five speed conversion, flip-forward nose for better engine access, front disk brakes and much more. If you are looking for a well-modified Sprite in a stunning color, this could be your car.
Everyone loves BRG, it’s the most popular color, even though it was not original on this car, it is iconic and looks perfect on every Sprite.
Carpet is new. Seats are excellent. A good top is included. As you can see in the photo below, the top does fit over the roll bar.
Performance is excellent courtesy of the 1275 engine on board. Wiring harness was recently replaced. K and N lifetime air filters are present. We’ve just put in a new master cylinder and aluminum slave cylinder to refresh the hydraulics.
I got this car in Idaho and it is quite solid. The floors and underside are excellent.
The car also has an anti roll bar in front and a panhard rod stiffening the rear end. Handling is great!
Paint is excellent, close up of rear quarter is shown above so you can see just how reflective it is. Like a mirror! Slick side mirrors are fit in the windshield pillars, and they work great. This is a very striking Bugeye, ready to head to a new home!
