OLDER RESTORATION ON AN ARIZONA HEALEY 3000 BJ8

This is a tremendous opportunity to obtain a solid,strong,older restored Big Healey at an entry level price.I state older restoration but looking through the thousands and thousands of dollars spent in the late 80s,early 90s,it appears it was a cosmetic restoration on a solid,low mileage example.The mechanical work was spent sorting and refreshing a 43000 mile car.Suspension components,clutches,wheels sent to Dayton wire wheel for truing,new pumps,brake lines,rotors and on and on mechanically.The cosmetics were done on what appears to be a solid,minimum (very minimal) rust car.In the records we have pictures of the car disassembled,very solid piece.In addition to pictures we have thousands in service tickets,letters from owner to shop and back.The mileage are believed to be original,there is a small spiral notebook like we all had in the day recording miles,gas prices and dates.The mileage is consistent with records.The reason I have priced the car at this level is that the restoration has patina.The interior has some flaws,the undercarriage needs to be detailed.The exhaust is stainless steel.Now for the good,this car drives amazing,very tight(a little shimmy from old tires that have been sitting),engine is smooth,starts easily,does not smoke,the tranny is quiet,tight,and correct.The overdrive works but a little slow on engaging,never the less works going in and out.Glass is good,side windows work you a little going up and down.I put a small crack in back window of top when putting it down for photographs(it is small and at the very bottom).Body is straight with nice gaps and doors that work easily.I have been in this business for 44 years,the Healey was the car that interested me and got me involved with collector cars,I have had hundreds,this is a good car.The car is located 25 miles east of downtown Nashville Tn.Independent inspections are welcomed and encouraged.I have tried to provide enough pictures for one to discern if this is an example one would like to pursue.If the car interest you,contact me at 615-971-4409.There will be an additional $299 for dealer doc fee on final agreed upon transaction amount.
