49,000 Bugeye Sprite's were built from 1958 to 1961. One of the most affordable sports cars in its time, selling for $1,795, this Bugeye was built near the end of production. Chassis number 399909 has nearly all the final changes when production ceased in November of 1960 with chassis number 49584.

This example was built May 25th of 1960 in Abingdon, England. This is a near original restoration with much time spent researching correct details such as Whitworth bolts, body and trim color. The color is Isis Blue painted with UK paint. It is a numbers matching automobile.

Only three people have owned it since its arrival in Chicago, Illinois in the mid-1960s. In 1981 the car was garaged and 'buried beneath stuff for 18 years.' The present owner acquired the car in mid-2007 and completed a full restoration 5 and 1/2 years later.

This example sat for 18 years before it was restored. The British Motor Industry Heritage certificate shows the car was imported to Chicago Illinois on June 13th of 1960.
