Well-preserved, older restoration

An excellent driver-quality example

At a distance one would consider its all black interior to be in great condition. The seat leather and stitching (front and rear) are original and in great condition. The carpets have been replaced by a previous owner reflective insulation was added for improved heat and sound characteristics. The all-original dash is in great condition. However, the door panels have seen a little more wear than the rest of the interior. On both panels, one will notice some small patches and repairs that keep with the original look but are obviously repairs. A previous owner also separated the drive pedals to make it easier to drive if mobility is a concern.
Currently wearing its second coat of British Racing Green, the consignor states that the paint is in great condition. No major chips or blemishes are present except for one small chip down below the door. All chrome bumpers and trim accents are in great condition. It is fitted with a rear luggage rack and front badge-bar with running lights. The vinyl on the newer reproduction convertible top is in great condition with no holes or cracks in the rear window. Top up or top down, this is a looker set to impress.
The original six-cylinder engine housed in a clean engine bay, mated to a four-speed transmission with and electronically switched overdrive on the dash. Points have been upgraded to Petronics but otherwise everything else keeps with the OEM look. Getting into first gear can be difficult at times but otherwise shifts well especially at speed. The dual exhaust only adds to the British sports car flair.
Looking underneath the car, surface rust is present, although the consignor states that this is not major, and the original paintwork can be found on its undercarriage. The car does leak a little bit of oil at the seal, so there can be a little bit of oil clean up from time to time. Front end sound and handles very well.
This can be considered a well-cared for and well-maintained driver-quality example. Having lived most of its life on the west coast, this vehicle has seen very little wear and tear over the years. If you’re looking for a reliable, good looking, long lasting driver, this is the Austin-Healey for you.
