News & Updates | 1st November 2019

There have been some interesting developments over the past few weeks with the delivery of a new prototype inner body chassis assembly, a late night fuel pump repair and preparations for the Classic Motor Show!

Here is a quick summary, beginning with the fuel pump repair.

Open All Hours!

The Healey world never sleeps!

On 18th September, Steve Ormerod was in a bit of a fix when the brand new fuel pump he installed in his Austin Healey 3000 failed! Not ideal at the best of times when a new part turns out to be faulty but the timing couldn't be worse as Steve was due to appear at a charity event to give rides to disabled children. READ MORE

Delivering New Prototype to Bill Rawles

John Lee and Jonathan Hill delivering A H Spares' new Austin Healey inner body chassis assembly prototype to Bill Rawles.

Just a little something we've been working on recently.

We dropped off a complete inner body chassis assembly prototype to Bill Rawles Classic Cars!

It started off as a project for us to check and improve the fit of our Austin Healey inner body panels we make at A. H. Panels but it's quickly grown into a complete inner body substructure prototype that Bill Rawles will test for us.

Bill Rawles Classic Cars are using the prototype to build their new race car that Jack Rawles himself will soon be racing!

Who knows, maybe this could become a regular thing?

Come and see us at the Classic Motor Show

Autumn may be upon us, (at least in the Northern Hemisphere) and the we're seeing less of the sun during the days but there is still the Classic Motor Show to look forward to in November!

We are excited to tell you that we are exhibiting again at this fantastic event in the Birmingham NEC with our team from Friday 8th to Sunday 10th November 2019.

Stronger & Better! Austin Healey Kevlar Hoses

Reinforced Austin Healey bottom hose with heater pipe.

Reduce your repairs and keep your fluids flowing for longer!

The heater hoses are one of the more perishable parts in the engine bay of your Austin Healey and replacing them is sometimes messy and isn't always a quick job.

Don't worry, our Austin Healey hoses are made from Kevlar reinforced rubber and will cope with the temperature fluctuations better than the standard hoses! READ MORE

Back to New! Restoring an Austin Healey 100/6

Restoring an Austin Healey from a rusty hulk to a vibrant gem of showroom quality was task eagerly undertaken by owner, Greg Barnsley in Australia!

Whether you're in the middle of restoring your Healey or looking to start a restoration project yourself, this story from Down Under will give you some inspiration!

Greg ordered a number of parts from us and later got in touch through our Facebook Page to show us his finished Healey. It was a real treat to see the before and after photos so we asked Greg about his restoration project. READ MORE
