A NEW APPROACH IN AN AGE OLD BUSINESS+44 (0) 1926 691 141
This original California car arrived in the UK in 1988 and remained in dry storage for many years prior to complete and sympathetic restoration. All panels are original, never accident damaged and the whole car has been restored by ‘Big Healey' specialist, John Chatham to the highest standard over the past five years. Photographic evidence of the restoration work shows the car completely stripped to its core components and the comprehensive preparation that the chassis and tub have received. The result of this hard labour is a remarkable car with flawless paintwork and expertly trimmed interior. The restoration and presentation of this Healey is to production-specification with period modifications including a Mk.3 spec engine and rear shock absorbers, plus high-torque starter motor. It has been fitted with lockable Mk.3 door handles, mohair hood, wood rim steering wheel and 72 spoke 5.5J wire wheels. Considered by many to be the greatest all-rounder of the Healey range this amply-powered two + two-seater in original colour of Ivory White has been rebuilt in period correct lefthand drive guise. Factory options fitted to this car in 1962 included wire wheels, heater, adjustable steering column, overdrive, laminated windscreen and road speed tyres. The professionally executed and comprehensive nut and bolt rebuild with great attention to detail makes this car the BEST!
