Professionally rebuilt in 2016. Runs very well, lovely. (Same engine as Austin Healey 100/4). Engine rebuild included conversion to unleaded.
Column change. New clutch fitted during engine refurbishment.
Oily rag example. New brakes 2014/ 2015. Recently refurbished wheel hubs. New brakes and rear oil seal modification carried out, as per Austin Healey.
Some documents present, some lost over time. This car has appeared in the Austin Counties Car Club magazine (on a number of occasions). Used by the present owner for a number of (UK) rallies and driving tours. A real head turner at car shows. Also interestingly this car was previously owned by a gentleman who drove it all over the continent, inside you can see badges where he visited. A restored saloon recently sold in excess of £40k at auction. This unrestored / 'oily-rag' example is ready to drive away, enjoy (and one day maybe restore..)
