Original California Healey
Original Colorado red paint (faded)
Original engine and transmission
No signs of collision damage or repair
Straight body - good straight shrouds and only minor dents on various panels.
Original windows with proper Triplex insignia
Clear CA title
Condition: Some areas of rust in the floor, trunk floor, along the passenger side front wing, trunk lid, and passenger rocker panel, all areas prone to rust on a Healey and easy to fix. The superstructure including frame rails and outriggers are extremely solid and straight.
This Healey has been sitting for some time under a tarp on the side of the house and as a result, shows age. Last we spoke, the owner stated it would run. The engine turns over by hand and the rocker valley is clean (pictured).
This Healey is mostly complete missing only a few minor items including the front seats, the rear seat back, air cleaners, windshield wiper arms, door cards (were deterioirated), and radio are also missing. These items are relatively easy to acquire. The exhaust pipe and mufflers were recently removed as they were too far corroded. Other than the aforementioned, this is a complete Healey which would be a very good candidate for restoration.
I'm happy to show the car by appointment. I can deliver the Healey to a shipping agent of your choice for $100 within 10 miles of Berkeley, Ca. otherwise, delivery to a shipping agent of the winner's choice is available at cost.
