Sold - 59 Bugeye Project (Los Angeles)

Postby Rot » Sun Jul 17, 2016 5:29 pm

1959 Austin Healey Sprite (Bugeye)
Unfinished Project. A health issue is causing the sale, this is a very doable project.
The rust is gone but needs more work. Has new floorboards with reinforcements and crossmember. Inner and outer sills, front wheel arches, rear shut panel and shock mounting brackets installed.
The included trunk pan needs to be installed and the left lower quarter panel behind the wheel arch needs to be replaced. Need to close up the bottom of the trans tunnel and minor patches welded in.
The tub is straight as is the bonnet. The bonnet fender beading needs to be replaced and a small area needs to be patched but is otherwise in very good condition. A new grill is included too.
All the suspension pieces, including the rear axle housing have been cleaned and primered.
The original 948 engine ran when pulled but I recommend rebuilding it.
The smooth case trans shifted well including downshifting if you were patient!
The car is complete but needs a new windshield. The seats (red) are very serviceable and a new carpet kit (tan) is included.
Also included with the car are complete rebuild kits for the front suspension, new rear springs and disc brake conversion with metallic hoses and brake pads. Many other new items like a new coil, SU fuel pump, sway bar, cloth wrapped wiring harness, voltage regulator and other bits are included as well - and 4 Minitor minilight wheels! The original steel wheels with new (though old) tires come with car.
You will need a trailer and a cart to set the car on as the suspension has not been installed.
Price: $4600.00
Please PM me if interested. Pics coming soon - the car is located in LA near Pasadena.
