DETAILS

Despatched on the 6th October 1964 to L.F. Dove Limited of Surrey, this original home market car is a late twin indicator Phase II featuring all major body, chassis and interior revisions Austin Healey made to the MkIII platform.

Finished in its original Black with Colorado Red duotone, Red interior trim and Black wet weather gear, the car has been subtly upgraded since its restoration including leather hide seating (vinyl seating was standard on MkIIIs), a very nice mohair hood (Everflex was factory), a louvred bonnet and a newly rebuilt (by ourselves) fast road engine.

From the late 80s the car has resided in Germany where it was looked after and later was restored by a British car specialist and restored. Clearly the subject of meticulous attention to detail, this Healey remains in exceptionally nice condition throughout and driving exceptionally well.

In August 2020 we completed a full engine rebuild with the engine fully stripped, crack tested and chemically cleaned before being machined and built up. The rebuilt engine features an uprated camshaft plus oversized valves for a significant power and torque increase plus modernisations for future reliability including a porosity kit and upgraded oil seals. We have also fitted a new upgraded steering box, new servo and comprehensively serviced the car.

A well sorted Healey ready for any trial.

Provided serviced and with MOT, British Motor Heritage Certificate of Authenticity, large paperwork history file, photographic documentation of restoration and more. Fully UK registered and imported with all duties paid on registration YHH 442B.
