1959 Austin-Healey 59 Bugeye

1959 Bugeye. Bought for $1.00 off my great uncle back in 1996. Had all orginal rubber carpet, but had to be tore out. The car has all orginal chrome and instrument panel, was an all numbers matching car.. It is now having the 948cc torn out and replacing with a 1275cc. It will also have the 3.9 rear-end. It’s the red bugeye in the picture, it was taken at the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Car Show.
