|Bugeye Sprite "Mystery Car"!
From Louise Culman: "I have mechanically restored a lovely
little Sprite - left the body the way I found it - and am vintage racing
on the West coast."
|"The car is a 1959 right hand drive Bugeye Sprite. I found
it in Salem Oregon. It is very dark green with a painted white stripe
and a painted racing number is 13. In the front bonnet
there is an additional small air scoop between the headlights. The
seats look like they came out of an old airplane. There is a Ki-gas
bottle control mounted on the dash."
|"The cylinder head is painted orange. It has drum brakes with
backing plates drilled with many small holes for cooling. It has
|"On the back is hand painted "Race prepared by Jerry & Alan
automotive". I'd love to talk to Alan or Jerry and ask them
about a very interesting badge mounted in the middle of the dashboard."
