Gateway Classic Cars Houston showroom is proud to present this 1963
Austin-Healey 3000 Replica. If there is one automotive trend that
has never gone out of style, it's the practice of injecting a full
dose of American V8 power into a sporting British roadster. Founded
in 1979, the now extinct Classic Roadsters Limited in Fargo, North
Dakota, was one of the earliest companies to offer replicas in kit
form. This example shows quality execution and finishing, presented
in a pairing of bright red paint with a black interior. The replica
is finished with competition ready touches such as dual fold-down
windshields, a full-width padded roll bar, louvered hood with
leather straps and full wheel arch flares. The black cockpit is
similarly themed with pleated synthetic leather bucket seats with
matching door cards and carpet. A three spoke Pilot wood-rimmed
aluminum steering wheel frames the instrumentation including a
120-mph speedometer, a tachometer, and auxiliary gauges for oil
pressure, water temperature, and fuel level. Keeping with its
Anglo-American inspiration, this nifty replica British sports car
is powered by a Ford small-block 302 CID V8 engine topped with
Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock polished air cleaner and
Torker II intake, Mickey Thompson valve covers and long tube
headers, and mated to a 4-speed manual transmission putting power
to the ground via its Ford 9-inch rear end.
