1959 Bugeye sprite with a GM V6 2. 7 engine mated to a 5 speed trans. All gm 4 wheel disc brakes. ustom chassis components. drive shaft. mounts and exhaust. The car was a driver but has had extensive water intrusion to the engine from being exposed without a bonnet for some time. The engine is locked bad and some wiring has been cut. I was going to convert her to carb anyway. When I bought it the bonnet was missing. but now it has a nice one that fits perfectly and without any sign of the beast within! Everything on this car is custom and DONE RIGHT by a master fabricator.
The car is solid generally but need some minor patching. She is not a rust bucket and could easily be brought back to original if you actually wanted that slow-ass 40hp. 3mph original Limey crap. Clearly I am not a purist as I have worked on British cars all my life and have the scars and stories of great engineering failures to prove it. Look at the detail pics closely. Sorry they are not great but the warehouse where this is stored is unlit so I had to use a drop light. For those of you that know what to look for in a conversion. I have taken detailed pics of the custom parts.
Shown as is and with no extra parts except the tail light lens and top bows. No windshield or seats. There is a bare dash included also.
I bought the car on ebay with a bill of sale from SC and will sell it the same way. Bill of sale from me personally in Baltimore. I am actually in Baltimore. not Greece in case you are worried.  Our family has a house there and I was bored out of my mind after a month so I opened an account. Look at my feedback. no games here so I expect none from your side. I am easy to find on the web. I have this on CL Baltimore and you can see my number there if you want to call me.
This WILL fit in the back of a 1/2 ton truck with just a couple of 2x12x10 s and some blocks. I have a forklift with extensions to load if you go that route. It rolls and steers but 2 tires go flat after about 20 min. Located in 21217 zip so you can get your shipping numbers. I can deliver within 200 miles for a fee TBD. I might have to drive to Miami in 30 days if that is on the way for you. lso TBD.
