NOW SOLD to Richard in Austin Texas! Congratulations!!!! Our 310th!
We’re excited to bring you a high-caliber completely restored car this week. “Sunny,” underwent an exceptional rotisserie restoration that was completed in 2008. The car went on to win tons of trophies at various car shows, including best of show at a national Healey Encounter event. It’s a quality job throughout and the car still looks freshly restored.
The original hardtops were almost all Ivory white but a “color matched” hardtop is a superb idea and very popular. They make the car look like a piece of candy and enhance the car’s already delicious personality.
Of course, some folks will remove the hardtop and leave it stored in their garage, so we have also shown the car with the top removed (the car also comes with soft top). Still other drivers will leave the hardtop on the car year-round for sun protection and/or the “yellow on yellow” bold look. We’ve fit reproduction Amco wind wings (coming soon for sale in our catalog) to make the cockpit that much more cozy when the lid is in place. Good sidecurtains are also included, as you can see in the photo album.
The car drives exceptionally well. I was told the car has traveled about 10,000 miles since the complete restoration but it sure looks to me like the car has only gone about 1000 miles… she looks that fresh. 69,335 miles are indicated. Regardless of the mileage, this is a very nice car!
The engine is a strong 1275 mated to a four-speed rib case and a 3.9 differential. The car is quick and also has great highway manners. New 175 tires are on the car, along with stock and well-finished original steel wheels.
The underside also looks great. She’s fit with a sway bar and custom driving lights mounted to the bumper. The bumper (and driving lights) are easily removed as are the Austin Healey shields which were added to the hardtop.
Give a call if you would like to make this car your own! It’s hard to find cars that are this nice!
