Very well sorted BJ7 Austin-Healey. This Healy was painted in 2015. The total bill came to $29,142.88. The body was fully disassembled, any rust was repaired or replaced prior to painting. The brightwork was also replaced along with numerous other smaller parts and larger systems such as a new exhaust. Earlier in 2015 another $8,121.11 was spent by rebuilding the transmission, clutch and suspension and numerous other details. The interior received a restoration in 2013 which included seat restoration, New Carpet, New convertible top with a new convertible boot. Included in the sale is the maintenance records which dates back to the engine rebuild in 2001. What I love about this Healy are the fantastic driving characteristics. Looks are important and this big Healey has those at every angle, but the sound of the inline 6 and the feel of the wheel, the feel of the slight vibrations through the seat, this open-air nimble sports car just aches for the turns in the road. All of that is accessible with just the turn of the key makes this Healey a winner. The work has been done, ready for immediate enjoyment. Other notable points are, - 2912cc OHV 6-cylinder engine - Twin SU sidedraft carburetors - 4-speed manual transmission - Front disc brakes, rear drum brakes - Smiths instrumentation - Front and rear bumper guards - Factory left hand drive model -Black soft top and boot -Knock-off wire wheels - Excellent panel fit Contact Shep with your interest at 208.721.1973

With mixed feelings, I noted the Hagerty report this week about the relative values of specific collector cars in relation with value trends in the market as a whole.
The Pick of the Day has a strong presence despite its small size
