This is a California car. very clean. I am a private owner with title in my name and many years of records. manuals. repair books. Body is very nice with its original metal bonnet (front hood). There is a small chip on rear driver's fender- please see photos. There is also a gas stain on paint near gas cap.

Everywhere this car goes. it gets smiles. If you have been thinking about getting a sports car. this is probably a great opportunity for you. It's a beautiful color and it's very rare to have chrome wire wheels on a Bugeye. Great sounding exhaust and AM/FM stereo. It is truly a pleasure to drive. Please notice the seats have been re-done for comfort; they are original. I am getting older and not using the car very much.
