    Incredible BE for sale, Calgary, Canada

    Hopefully high-lighting this ad isn`t inappropriate. Bring A Trailer; bidding closes in four days. Note the kit-built Morgan three-wheeler in the background on one of the shots. I saw the car and met the owner abut three years ago, and my recollection is that it`s beautiful. And don`t salivate excessively at the list of work done to it and what it comes with - it`s a dream Bugeye. Doug

    That really is a great car. Only thing I might wish for is a 5 speed. Should set a high bar for bugeye prices.

    SOld today for $ 25.5 k US. I figure the purchaser got incredible value (but I'm sure no expert). Apparently it's staying north of the 49th, and sets a record for price for the last four years at BAT: https://bringatrailer.com/austin-healey/bugeye-sprite/ Doug
