Now SOLD to Matt in New York! Congratulations on Bugeye #371!
If you like patina, this is a great car for you! This is “Callie” (AN5L 30255) and she’s weathered to perfection with superb patina. Callie is solid under that weathered look… we did make one repair in the passenger side floor pan where there were some pinholes, so the car is ready to go!
We have made a couple of videos, which you will find below, so you can get a feel for how well the car drives. Callie has a 1275 Engine that was replaced somewhere along the line, and a rib case transmission. It’s just a joy in every way! The tires are recent, as well.
Callie is fitted with tube shocks, which is something we often remove for ride quality purposes; however, they work just fine on this car. They were a little bit “clicky” so we might try some new shocks, or we can change it back to lever shocks for the new owner if they so desire; quite frankly, I would probably leave it just how it is. It fits the overall aesthetic of the car well.
If you are looking for a Bugeye that’s kind of pure and elemental and reminiscent of the old days when we didn’t care about so many of the finer details, this would be a good choice for you!
Give us a call or send us an e-mail if you’re interested in adding Callie to your collection!
