This is the best gas powered Bugeye we have ever built. I am lucky it is mine.
In case you are new to our universe, this is the ’59 Bugeye that started it all. Gumby was once a beater. Now it’s our flagship. Soon we will sell our 250th Bugeyes, a milestone I would never have imagined when I first met this worn-out Sprite parked by the curb. I enjoyed taking a ride with Gumby today, and hereby express my gratitude to the car that has given birth a now 12-year old business that is primarily dedicated to its siblings.
The interior is custom sewn (in house) leather, with a custom quilted pattern, derivative of the ribs that would have been stock when Gumby was new. When I got the car in 1979, it had shiny metallic teal blue seats, so it seemed only fair that I should customize them and make them extra nice.
Everyone always asks about the color… It’s Aston Martin Racing Green with Mercedes Palladian silver metallic stripes. It’s certainly not a stock color combination, but most people agree it looks just right.
Anything you see on Gumby is available for your car… just ask, we have everything in our parts catalog, and can also custom build a car just for you.
