1965 Austin Healey 3000 Convertible This Healey has been properly
restored and sorted to give trouble free enjoyment. You are buying
from a Healey enthusiast and a long time Healey club member.
Everything done has been documented with receipts. Engine rebuilt,
Toyota 5 speed transmission installed. Original transmission comes
with car. New tires and wire wheels that have been balanced and
prepped by Hendrix Wire Wheels in Greensboro, N.C. (the world's
best Healey wire wheel expert), solid frame underneath, see
pictures; excellent paint in original color and chrome is
excellent! Plus new beautiful English Leather Interior purchased
from Great Britain. THIS HEALEY NEEDS NOTHING! I am a Healey
enthusiast and a long time Healey club member. I have owned and
restored 10 Austin Healeys (I wrote the checks) over the past 25
years. What appealed to me about this car was the fact that
according to the previous owner it had had the same service station
owner for over 30 years. You can see and feel the care this car was
given: SOLID AND TIGHT. The Colorado red paint (original color) is
excellent over a rust free body. Complete expert engine rebuild was
done to insure great performance for years to come. All receipts
are included for documentation. Engine is original as evidenced by
British Heritage Certificate that new owner gets. We chose to
install a Toyota 5 speed transmission designed for the Healey that
updates the driving performance. This is about a $6,000 value
including installation and labor. She is now synchronized in FIRST
gear and 5th gear serves as overdrive. This makes a tremendous
difference in the car. Everything looks the same in the interior.
This insures no more expensive transmission and over drive
rebuilds. The original 4 speed transmission comes with the car. We
have put over 3,000 (sorting) miles on this car after finishing
restoration to insure trouble free driving of this 54 year old
