5 years ago I found this Austin Healey 100/4, the car was a
one owner vehicle that had only covered 25,000 miles.
Back in 1963 the car had
an electrical fault that resulted in a fire under the dashboard that spread
into the engine compartment. The car was pushed back into the garage to be
repaired one day. Time passed and so did the owner.
I bought the car and had it shipped back to the UK from
California where the restoration began. Yes it has taken over 4 years to
complete this car, attention to detail was important and I will admit I am no
expert on the Austin side of the Healey Motor Company, I called on advice from
many Austin Healey owners to get the car back to as near original as I could.
Finished in the original combination of Sage Green with Green trim and matching
hood and Tonneau cover.
The car has been subject to a total nut and bolt
rebuild with many hard to find parts located and replaced. Every component has
This must be one of the best Austin Healey 100/4’s out there.
The sad thing is that it does not fit in my plans for the
Healey Collection so it will be available to someone either show or drive for
many years to come.
