1956 Austin Healey 100 BN2 with LeMans Kit for sale

This has been my personal 100M since the fall of 2012. I have not been using it enough, and it’s time to pass this stunning car to a new owner.

The car was comprehensively restored by a passionate Healey enthusiast, who worked hard to create a show-winning car that he could also drive. He started with the preferred 1956 four-speed BN2 100 Healey and correctly built the car to the proper LeMans spec, which was verified by M registry certification.

The car is stunning. Paint work is excellent in correct Healey blue. Panel fit, door fit and swage line fit are all excellent. Dashboard paint scheme is also correct, and the matching blue leather seats are exceptional.

The original engine and gearbox were completely rebuilt, and the M- spec engine produces brisk acceleration. A lower ring and pinion set was built into the rear end, to make for impressive highway cruising. The original electric overdrive functions beautifully, and in fourth gear with overdrive engaged, the lower rear end allows effortless 70 mph cruising. The car runs on modern radials with 72 spoke painted wire wheels, much stronger than the stock 48 spoke painted rims (and bias plys) that would have come with the car. This configuration made it easy for me to enjoy a delightful long drive to Lime Rock Park for the fall concours in 2015, where the car was awarded third place in class.

In recent years, I have fit a high-output starter motor and premium Optima Battery (in the original battery tray). These upgrades have made the car easy to start even after she has been sitting for a few weeks. The new owner will appreciate the ease with which the car springs to life courtesy of these upgrades.

Engine bay is quite tidy, and the spin-on oil filter upgrade (above) makes service easier. I’ve also hidden a K & N lifetime air filter in the front shroud, mounted on the end of the correct reproduction air hose. Many of these M air boxes are running without air filters but I made certain that filtered air would help protect this great engine.

I have maintained the car so that it is ready to enjoy. I have recently replaced the master cylinder, rear wheel cylinders, brake shoes and front shocks. I would not hesitate to drive this car on a long trip.

The convertible top is also excellent and quite useable, made of uprated matching blue everflex with the addition of a zip-down rear window, which is an excellent upgrade that makes the car that much more useable on the hottest of days. I have enjoyed top-up rear window down motoring when the sun is otherwise too hot for an open car drive. In this way, the top functions as an awning and with windows off and rear window unzipped, the occupants enjoy maximum ventilation. Nice side curtains are included, as is a good blue tonneau cover.

I bought this car because it is a show-winner that can also be driven and enjoyed, and the new owner will appreciate the fact that this is not just a showpiece that is tucked away in the garage. Whether the windshield is folded down or left in the more upright position, this is an exceptional sculpture on wheels that will be enjoyed for generations to come.

The car is available for $99,900.

1960 Austin Healey 3000 Mark 1 BT7 for sale-ultimate driver

If you have always wanted to enjoy the roar of a Big Healey, this car is worth serious consideration. Come for a drive with me below!

HBT7L 6635 is a great driver that we recently freshened with about $10,000 worth of restoration work. Chrome wire wheels, both drive splines, chrome spinners and tires and tubes are new (and balanced), hydraulics are new, exhaust system is new, dashboard and panels in the interior are new, seats are nice leather and carpet is new (all this work was done after the video above).

The car is solid and it drives beautifully. She’s available for just $39,995. This is a stunning Healey at a great price!

The car is olde English white over Colorado red. It grunts and growls like a six cylinder Healey should. Gearbox and electric overdrive work great. We’ve also installed a premium aluminum radiator and upgraded (extra blade) engine driven fan, to ensure the car stays cool in even the hottest climates.

The car is a blast to drive!

She was restored in the early 90s, when the engine was rebuilt with hardened valve seats (to run on unleaded gas) at that time. We’ve maintained the car over the past five years and the prior owner was generous with his investment and took care of the car properly. It’s a fantastic driver that starts right up and is ready to go!

A great nearly new top is included, which looks quite handsome on the car.

Good side curtains are included, although they can use new rubber gaskets. The tonneau is very nice tonneau and the original tonneau bar is also present, which nicely supports the tonneau behind the seats as you can see in the photo below.

This is a fantastic car for anyone who wants to get out and drive their Big Healey… well sorted and properly upgraded so you can enjoy it out on the roads this summer!

2018 Mini Cooper S JCW for sale, in Mint condition with just 7000 miles-Price reduced!

Price Reduced! Now $25,995. That’s a lot of new Mini for not a lot of dough!

Here’s something different… this is a stunning, nearly brand new Mini Cooper John Cooper Works model, with just 7021 miles. The car is a rocket, with 228 turbo charged HP. It’s about 2800 LBS and great fun, with tons of modern features. This is the first car we have featured on our site with a back up camera and heated seats!

Now that’s a front brake!

You can zoom around town, or switch to “green mode” and choose fuel efficiency. The car is loaded with technology and the two electronic car keys alone seem smarter than the average Bugeye Sprite.

We have always loved Minis, and this is a fun car just like its classic Mini brethren. And they’re fun cars with much more modern practicality than the classic Minis you have seen more frequently on our site.

I traded this car for our black MGA Coupe so I would like to find it a new home. The car is immaculate, with wonderful factory works black leather seats, built with attractive red accents. If you are unfamiliar, the JCW kit is the factory performance Mini, a limited edition with multiple upgrades and cosmetic accents.

Call or email anytime if you are looking for a nearly new modern car that also provides classic car fun! The car was about $38,000 new. Offered here for just $25,995. Email if you are interested!

Striking 1955 TR2 for sale

Just 8,636 TR2s were built between 1953 and 1955. This is TS 4431, a rare car, and worth serious consideration.

In 1955, the TR3 was born, and the grill moved forward, as shown at right below. The white car is a small mouth TR3, of which 17k were built between 1955-1957. In 1958 the large mouth TR3A was born and about 58,000 units were built before the end of the series a few years later.

1955 TR2 with inset grill left, small mouth 1957 TR3 Right

Each variant is wonderful. But the TR2 is visually the most unusual. The grill is brilliant, raw and simplistic, and a perfect fit for this rugged car. I love the small mouth TR3 but the TR2 snout always seemed more appropriate for the car than later versions. And there just don’t seem to be many TR2s left anymore.

Thus I am in love with this short door four speed TR2 because of the subtle differences it has from the more common TR3s. I never tire of the unique small mouth and I love the clean doors with no external door handles. I am sorry they added door handles to the TR3, some purity was lost. And I love the vintage center brake light, unique to TR2s.

This particular car was formerly vintage-raced. The log book is included and shows a tech inspection in 1988. It was subsequently restored for street use by the long time owner. The car was sent to Marque specialist Macy’s Garage in Ohio in 2011 where they went through the car and did some sorting of the prior restorer’s work. They also upgraded the front brakes to disk. I have asked them to see if they can find the receipts from that service work in 2011.

I bought the car from a (meticulous) collector in Florida who wasn’t using the car any more and wanted to move it to a good home. The car is really fun to drive and it’s tight and quick. It also has tremendous curb appeal.

Note the lack of lock fittings on the front of the bonnet-the TR3s had these external chrome fittings to hold the bonnet shut. You’ll see those fittings on the boot lid and spare tire hatch below. You need the T handle key to open them… but no outside latch fittings on the bonnet. Early cars had an internal (and more practical) hood release.

The top is nearly new, as is the interior. The side curtains too are a nice bonus, and in great shape. You can see them in the boot, with nice clear plastic windows. The interior was also completely redone, and also looks nearly new.

A trickle charger is hard-wired in place under the bonnet in front of the battery. There’s a battery kill switch in the passenger foot well. This is a nice anti-theft feature. A spin-on oil filter is also present, for easier oil changes.

The car spent a lot of time in California, as confirmed by early registrations which are shown in the photo gallery. At some point the car moved to Ohio, and then on to Florida. The car is quite solid, the underside looks quite nice.

Give a call if you want to discuss this rare and wonderful vintage car!

Custom Works Tribute! 1967 Austin Healey 3000 MK3 BJ8 for sale

This is, without exception, the nicest car we have ever owned. Listen to it roar in the drive by video below:

This works rally tribute car is the product of an obsessive $200K restoration, complete with an impressive list of improvements and modifications. There are dozens of system upgrades, such as a custom leather interior fit with Healey 100S vented seats, upgraded Bilstein shock absorbers, an impressive custom heating and air conditioning system, a fire quench system and even a lighted WW2 bomber compass beautifully integrated into the hardtop (which has an exceptional headliner finished in ultrasuede).

Works Rally car at 1962 Coupe des Alpes event

The engine was built to exacting standards for a significant power increase. It was fit with roller rockers, a slightly hotter cam and stunning set of triple side draft Webers. Each throat is fit with a velocity stack and filter. These beautiful carbs are accessed by a color-matched custom panel, just like the factory rally cars. The engine is dressed with a rare Ruddspeed valve cover, and the exhaust is a sculptural array of stainless headers and custom pipes.

There are even two matching boot lids, one stock and one with a twin spare tire duck tail (custom built to match the original works rally car boot lid). Both fit the car, and the new owner can easily swap these depending on taste or event. The stock boot lid is currently on the car… some of the pictures in the gallery feature the rally lid in place.

It’s all done to the highest standard. This is a unique opporunity to own a fantastic Healey works rally tribute car, that has been upgraded so that you can use it everyday. I have put a few hundred miles on this car, and it’s a knock-out, and tons of fun to drive and show!

Check out the awesome sounds that come from this custom exhaust system in the video below! Those are striking custom Dunlop style wheels (more below).


Check out the smart LED brake lights fit to the original reflector pods on the rear wings. The builder even fit an LED brake light on the back side of the license plate light.
