This fine 3000 MkIIa was dispatched from the works on 27th June 1962 destined for sun-drenched California where it appears to have spent most of its formative years. Documents on file show that in the early 1970s it resided in the San Diego area, the car arriving back on these shores in 1993 having been imported by Stevensons Garage in Loughborough who converted it to RHD and registered it in the UK on 21st July that year.
The accompanying Heritage Certificate states that it left the factory painted Colorado Red with a black interior and hood and was fitted with an overdrive, heater, adjustable steering column, laminated screen and road speed tyres.
Its current keeper has not driven the car in the rain since he purchased it in 1993 and has fastidiously maintained it regardless of cost. During his ownership, he has covered just 1,600 miles. The engine has been converted to use unleaded fuel and is fitted with a Kenlowe fan and there is a file of bills for work done over the period. The car comes with several boxes of useful spares and a useful car cover.
In remarkably rust-free condition, this dry-state Healey, with its desirable wind-up windows and proper hood, is ready for immediate use and would make a superb addition to any collection.
