Austin-Healey, One of the most successful rally cars of the 1960's
The MKII was the first Healey to have a permanently fixed convertible top, a curved wraparound windshield and pivoting wind windows. Just over 6,000 were built before production of the MKIII 3000 began.
In 2007, one was sold for $49,500 at RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $60,000 - $70,000. What was missing for it to not hit the estimated amount? Over $65,000 had gone into restoration and it has been the recipient of many awards throughout the years. In 2008, it went for $62,700.
Personally, if the Healey was being sold for $49,500, then you should be getting...
- Engine and Steering Gear Box
As well as:
- A vehicle that can produce around 140hp
- 4 speed manual transmission with overdrive
- Owned and maintained (with extreme care) by the previous owner.
Look for a number of these vehicle in the upcoming auction, Barnett-Jackson January 12-19, 2014 in Scottsdale, AZ. Let's see how much these go for...
