1958 Bugeye (https://www.panjo.com/buy/1958-bugeye-57742)

Bugeye For Sale
This car is a December 1958 built, 1959 registered Bugeye, VIN number AN5L8596. I have owned it since 2006.
It is 99.9% rust free, and has always been garaged by me, and also by the PO who bought it in California in 1976. The interior of the fuel tank is absolutely as new.
It is unrestored, with its original Old English white paintwork, and the traditional hand-brushed red interior of the trunk. There are several dings and scratches but nothing major.
1275cc engine/transmission from a 1974 MG Midget.
Front disc brakes from the same Midget.
SU Electric fuel pump with a fully electronic interior but retains the familiar clicking sound.
A set of original wheels and tyres AND as set of Aussie Minilite alloy wheels with modern tyres. The original wheels are fitted with Dunlop SPs, probably at least 30 years old, and should probably be used only for show purposes
3.7:1 final drive.
Tripod headlights.
A brand-new battery.
A large number of miscellaneous spare parts in boxes, which you agree to take as a condition of sale. This includes a Weber 40DCOE which I never fitted to the car, a complete front bumper, a very scruffy hardtop, and a soft top with the original frame. There are also a set of the attachable side panels but they are very deteriorated.
Yours for $9,000.
Located in Raleigh, NC. Buyer collects. Certified bank check only.

List Date: 4/30/2014
Location: Raleigh, NC, United States
