DETAILS

Built between 20th – 28th February 1962 USU 884 is a very late, final production Mark II car finished with the coveted tri-carb setup and centre change gearbox. The car is finished in  Colorado Red with Red seats with Black piping and Red edge bound carpet. Highly specified from new this car wire wheels, overdrive, a heater, adjustable steering column and leather seating.

Restored shortly before 1990 and with just 66, 200 original miles, this MkII has been known to us since the early noughties. In 2003 we converted the car to RHD with a leather dashboard plus major service at the same time. Since then the car appears to have been regularly maintained (with servicing by Rawles Motorsport in the last few years). The engine gives strong performance, the gearbox functions wonderfully and the overdrive is swift in operation. This is an easy, light and engaging car to drive.

Externally the car is really quite presentable, the bodywork tremendously solid and appearing very original in terms of panelling. The interior seating is in good condition free from rips, but the carpet is a little faded (although inexpensive to later replace). Overall USU 884 is a nice to drive and presentable Healey ripe for regular use. The car has just been fitted with a brand new Black tonneau cover.

Supplied serviced with MOT, British Motor Heritage Certificate of Authenticity, large paperwork file including history, restoration documentation/ photos, original owner’s handbook plus period books and charts.
