Description
 
A gorgeous Bug Eye, passed 'the kitchen magnet test' for bondo....ran it along the rockers and around the nose....stuck everywhere. Very clean maroon paint, all new interior with tan leather seats, good original top and tonneau, side curtains, very good (and very possibly original) chrome with no pittng or rust. Engine: original 948cc unit with 150 psi compression in every cylinder, no smoke, good oil pressure, smooth and with great performance (every one of its 43 horses, pulling together in unison), unusually good gearbox...quiet, good synchromesh action, precise shifting. Even the original air cleaners. New master cylinder, all new metal hydraulic lines, ALL new brakes.....hoses, wheel cylinders...new clutch slave and hose, new wiring harness. mostty new electrics, new clutch, new radiator, new shocks, new radiator and heater hoses, new heater core, ....... . AND......new seat foams, new carpets, new dash covering, rebuilt seat pans, new seat belts, reconditioned original steering wheel...really beautiful car. Even has the original bumper brackets and a perfectly good front bumper with guards IF one wants them installed (I thikk it looks better without them). Whats left? Tires appear to be nearly new, chrome hubcaps in good condition, original slotted wheels, all gauges work, all electricals work, runs and drives like new. Oh. And floor. Again, no rust or undercoating, no sign of patching, really excellent. This is a sensational Bug Eye capable of giving many years of pleasurable driving. I love my own 'cause it allows me to drive very fast (at least thats the way it feels) without violating the local speed laws. By very much. To me, on the road, it is all about the impression of speed that counts. Drive a Porsche 911 or Jaguar at 'fun' speeds and one is in jeopardy of a BIG ticket. Drive a Bug Eye at out and out racing speeds and.....? Fun. Not sure this car is ready for a national concours but for a local, home town car show, very very show-able.
