Footnotes

  • This 'MkI' Austin-Healey 3000 was restored during 2013/2014 and rebuilt as a replica of a period rally car, the vendor's intention being to keep to 1960 specification as much as possible. The triple SU carburettors have been retained, albeit without the restrictive standard air filters, and the engine bay left largely original. Rebuilt to 'fast road' specification by Richard Parker Race Engines Limited, the engine incorporates a 'Stage 1' gas-flowed cylinder head; bronze valve guides and unleaded inserts; tubular exhaust manifold; fast road/rally high-lift camshaft; 9.7:1 forged pistons; high-capacity oil pump; special harmonic crankshaft damper; and an alloy sump for better cooling and enhanced cylinder block stiffness.

    The full specification is too lengthy to list here but is available for inspection. A maximum output of 185bhp at the flywheel has been achieved previously with engines of a similar specification. The gearbox and rear axle have been totally rebuilt by an expert in these Austin Healey components.

    Jig built, the chassis has additional strengthening members, while the inner and outer body panels have been carefully repaired, with all joints fully seam-welded, before being treated to a bare metal re-spray. Chassis box sections and the underside have been wax protected. The running gear benefits from a new improved steering box; up-rated brakes with competition front discs and standard rebuilt drums at the rear; up-rated front shock absorbers; heavy-duty front stub axles; and adjustable telescopic rear shock absorbers. Vredestein tyres are mounted on 72-spoke silver painted wire wheels.

    The interior has the black crackle-painted dashboard, rebuilt instruments and the long direct-action gear lever, while the hardtop has been fitted with a correct ventilator. Other noteworthy features include a new wiring loom and electrical components; front wing vents; twin-spares boot lid; BMC and Union Jack badges; and a custom-made stainless steel side-exit silencer. Recently completed and offered in commensurately good condition, this smartly turned out 'Big Healey' is offered with current MoT/tax and V5 registration document.
