The vin # AN5L/33335 I bought this automobile out of a car collection. The gentleman that owned the car had a complete restoration done in 2010. There are restoration receipts that come with the car. These little cars are perfectly round in shape and very difficult to put back to perfection if they are rough. I have only seen a few examples with an original body in this kind of condition. The car was completely disassembled and the body was then mounted to a rotissere (inside. outside. and underside) to bare metal. The Chrome is in nice condition. All rubber and weather stripping is new. The result is a finish that is truly spectacular. The finish is less than four years old and is absolutely fabulous condition in every way. This is a very nice paint job being that the body is completely 100% bondo and rust free. All new Rubber Seals. Brand new Headlight Assembly Kits. Wheels were blasted and repainted. Mechanicals: Two Austin Healey guys I know have driven the car and they both say it is one of the fastest Bugeyes they have ever driven. Both said it feels like a 1275 engine. The car runs strong and I am amazed at how smooth it shifts and the amazing power it has. If you are in or near Southern California. please come drive this little hot rod to see for yourself what I am talking about. The Clutch and Complete Cooling System are all new. As well it has a brand new 12v alternator and regulator and all other electronics were either rebuilt or overhauled. I have the org front bumper and valve cover and some exter parts and fuel filters. The front-end and suspension was completed overhauled with new bushings and components. It drives straight down the road at 70 mph with your hands off the wheel. It tracks perfectly. Everything in the Braking System is brand new including brake lines. master cylinder and all brake components. Interior: The interior is in great shape. Carpets. Seat Upholstery. It has a brand new toggle top. The side curtains are in great shape as well (I would never drive it in any weather so they are 100% org There is a removable radio that is not pictured. the radio/cd player are hidden and there is also a plug for a cell phone charger…some nice driving comforts The little Bugeye is the right color. A lovely Riverside Red completely restored and ready to drive. show or both. You would be hard pressed to find one with as original a body anywhere. It is by far one the straightest examples I have seen. Mechanically it runs and drives better than any I have driven.
