Condition:Seller Notes:
“Bugeye is in good condition. It is not showroom condition. There are paint defects and wear consistent with being made in 1959. That being said, the car is a driver. It will start right up and take you where you need to go. It is mechanically sound and will get comments wherever it goes. Please contact me with any questions you may have and I will answer them as quickly as possible.”
