We are very pleased to be able to offer this very correct 1961 Austin-Healey Bugeye Sprite. I have personally known this car for over 35 years. The car has literally won over 50 first place awards at British Car shows, as the previous owner was one of my good friends and we drove all over the East coast to car shows together. Keep in mind I said “drove to,” as he never used this as a “trailer queen.” It is a fabulously driving car and has many unusual original components that he had sourced all over the world to make this as correct as it is. While the restoration is definitely “older,” the condition of the car is extremely nice, and it has had a significant recent service making it truly ready to go. Some of the unusual options on this car include: full weather gear, very rare Amco console with lighter and speaker, period correct Amco luggage rack, original safety latch on bonnet, and the proper 948 engine with copper spark plug leads and is correctly detailed. One of the most honest Bugeyes I have ever seen, and truly one of the nicest driving cars I have ever been in. While there are many restored Bugeyes available, most are full of reproduction parts and the authenticity of those cars have slowly gone down. Great pains were taken to keep this car correct, and when replacement parts were needed NOS parts were sourced. Bugeye is completely ready to go and virtually impossible to replace.
