Austin-Healey's signature model that features
the classic "Bugeyed" headlamps and affectionately known
as the "Bugeye" in the US and "Frogeye" in the UK
because its headlights were prominently mounted on top
of the bonnet, inboard of the front wings.
The entire front sheet-metal assembly, including the bonnet
and wings, is a one-piece unit,
hinged from the back that swings up to allow access
to the engine compartment.
This Bugeye is an un-restored, affordable classic
that longs for a new home,
nice paint and to be enjoyed driving those sunny days
or through the "twisties" on the weekends.
