Vehicle Description

What makes an ideal classic British sports car? There can be many answers. However, let's consider some attributes that you may desire. � Purity of a true roadster side curtain body, no heavy windows to break the style. � The smoothness and sound that can only come from a straight six engine � Enough power to run with modern traffic � Overdrive gearbox for relaxed cruising at higher speeds � 2+2 seating to share the experience with children or sideways sitting friends � Chrome wire wheels � Something beautiful to behold, setting in your drive or going down the road � Fully sorted and ready to enjoy If those criteria match yours, the answer list has become much shorter. This beautiful Austin Healey 3000 Mk 1 is clearly on that short list. It is indeed a well sorted car having seen regular summer use in recent years and owned and cared for by an engineer who is also a classic car professional. Perhaps the most important consideration of any classic sports car is condition of the body work and frame. Rust is the nemesis of most old cars and body and paint work is the most expensive undertaking to make right. So number one, make sure it's right when you buy it. We invite a close inspection of this Austin Healey. It has a solid frame and solid body and properly cared for will continue to have for many years to come. Although mechanical maintenance and repair on these cars is quite affordable, this one is set to go now. The engine starts easily and its excellent oil pressure attests to a strong bottom end. It runs without any bad noises or smoke or overheating that portends of potential problems. The brakes and steering inspire confidence. The transmission shifts well and a smooth clutch adds to the driving experience. The interior is a mix of old and new but nothing of the old exhibits excessive wear. This is a car to drive and enjoy. It might not win a Concours but you can drive it 500 miles to a show and not worry about getting there and back. We welcome you to see, inspect, and experience driving this car. Our shop and showroom is located just a mile from the St. Louis airport. We will happily accommodate third party inspections as well.
