...in my opinion was Bruce Uchida's Bugeye Sprite.

This car has been in his family since his dad campaigned it in SCCA back in the mid-sixties.

Check it out here: Bruce Uchida's BMW-powered 1959 Austin Healey Sprite
(41 photos - some of them are quite stunning if I do say so myself...)

I'm not 100% sure, but they look like Porsche 914 seats that have been rebuilt with headrests chopped off.
