Hi i am reluctantly placing my AH for sale.
As part of my interest in the development of the brand which spans some 30 or more years,the car offered for sale represents the best of both worlds in terms of lightweight,handling,power and durabilty.
Subject of a new build program spanning over 2 years and based around a new competition chassis with all works modifications.
Again the bulkhead structures are new by Dave Hardwick Engineering....with non stressed panels being fabricated in aluminium such as front wheel arches,scuttle top and boot floor,pedal box modified for triple weber or s.u carbs....
The outer body is constructed entirely by hand in alloy featuring all original works modifications such as suttle vent,carb access panel and wing vents...finished with a genuine works hardtop....
As most ardent Healey enthusiasts know,the works embarked upon a dietary program for both the Healey and also the MGC and produced 3 cylinder blocks in Aluminium of which the ill fated 1967 RAC rally car utilized....this was proclaimed as the ultimate spec in works development,sadly the car did not compete due to foot and mouth disease.
After a number of years of hardwork BW engine developments faithfully reproduced the units,all be it in far superior metallurgy.
Under the bonnet lies such a full alloy blocked engine displacing 3598cc with full steel billet crankshaft and connecting rods along with custom forged pistons....further engine specs include a fuller roller valve train,magnesium weber intake manifolds and 3 45 dcoe9 weber carbs,Steel billet flywheel,ATI damper and finished with a BW built stainless 6 branch extractor manifold and custom repackable silencer...
In currrent form it produces approx 270 hp and 260ft lb of torque to make for a extremely flexible unit,although certainly tuneable to circa 300 hp if need be.
Further parts include....
Centre change straight cut sebring gearbox with full race overdrive...
Mk3 axle casing with adjustable tramp bars,quaife lsd,steel billet half shafts,rose jointed rear bar and AP alloy calipers with heavy duty rear springs.
DAS10 nos adjustable shock absorbers all round.
Alloy radiator,DWR HR steering box along with heavy duty front stub axles with race hubs all round
Period lucas instrumentation
Long range alloy fuel tank with twin pumps..
Factory knock on minilites shod with avon zz tyres.
Currently 0 miles,immaculate and simply the best!!
Ideal as a fast rd car or you race/rally hill climb her.
