The exterior is finished in Cream with Silver Metallic inserts. The body is very straight and the panel fitment is factory. The paint is stunning and still contains a deep luster. A recent detail and polish really brought out the shine.

The glass windshield is encased in the original Chrome frame including the chrome windshield wiper arms. The chrome still has a deep shine with some minor patina from age. The convertible top features the original bows and frame. The upholstery was likely replaced at some point, ut it’s difficult to pinpoint exactly when. The top features a plastic rear window that is not ripped or torn.

The chrome bumpers and side molding are in excellent condition as well. There are no dents or dimples and a recent polish brought out a mirror finish. The lenses of the headlights, ail lamps, nd turn signals are crystal clear without any cracking or fogging.

The Austin Healey rides on Chrome wire wheels with knockoff caps. The wheels are in exceptional shape and do not contain any scrapes or rash from being rubbed against a curb. All four wheels are wrapped in nice steel belted tires. The tires have good tread remaining and are appropriate for a vehicle of this caliber.

Open the hood and you find the 2.6 liter inline 6-cylinder engine. We believe this motor to be the original motor that was built with this Austin Healey. It features dual carburetors, lectronic fuel pump and electronic ignition. The engine runs exceptionally and features the distinct Austin Healey exhaust note. There are no major leaks, nusual noises, r smoking.

The previous owner performed a heater bypass on the cooling system. The heater box along with a few boxes of other miscellaneous parts shown in the trunk photos will be passed along to the high bidder and next owner.

The engine is mated to a 4 speed manual transmission with overdrive on the top two gears. The transmission shifts through all of the gears smoothly and the clutch engages without any slips or chatter.

The brakes, oth front and rear, ere done a few years back. They are due for an adjustment and to have the fluid bled, ut otherwise stop the vehicle properly.

The interior features black carpet and upholstery. Overall, he seats are in very nice condition, lthough they could use a rewrap for this car to truly be in perfect condition. The majority of the carpet has been replaced and it in very nice condition without any stains or rips. The door panels and dashboard have no cracks and have aged very nicely. All of the gauges in the instrument cluster and dashboard work properly including the fuel gauge, peedometer, nd tachometer.
