This Austin Healey was fully restored a few years ago by a German collector who wanted an original classic and very reliable with the appearance of the Healey of the rallyes. The engine was rebuilt based on its original block and all its components renewed. The compression of all cylinders are uniform and high. The car has moved around 2000km since the completion of the restoration. The cooling system has been improved adding a modern electro-fan. The suspension, steering and brakes have been completely renovated and both rotors and brake calipers are new. The chassis is with no rust and free of accidents. The paint is in good condition very bright and without scratches. Currently it has a bright red color although originally was the exclusive and rare “Golden Beige Methalic” of the latest series II.
The trim was upholstered completely with black leather and vinyl including a new top with its boot. All the woods on the dashboard has been restored and varnished. The car comes with wire wheels and the tires still being fresh with a few kilometers only. Currently it carries a sporty look with protective grilles headlights, Bonnet style mirrors and without bumpers. (The original ones are included in the price with mounting if required).
The car starts easily and runs sweet and powerful. Steering is precise and with the small diameter moto-lita wheel you can drive it fast. The car is German registered and could be registered without problems in any European country.
This 3000 MK III is a good chance to buy a ready to go classic with high investment potential.The skyrocketing prices of other 6 cylinders classic car of the sixties gives to the Healeys a big chance to the future market.
