Footnotes

  • 'The SX combines the traditional look of the 60s with the confidence and exhilaration that current technology brings.' - Sebring International.

    What would become the Sebring range of 'Big Healey' replica kit-cars started out in 1991 as the Classic Roadsters design, imported from the USA. Since then the company has undergone a succession of ownership changes and is now based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. A number of variations on the Healey theme have been offered over the years, arguably the most faithful to the original being the SX two-seater roadster. First introduced in 1991 and still in production, the latter is currently built on a chassis of Sebring's own design, incorporating outrigger side rails and a front crumple zone. Ford Granada Mark 3 mechanicals were used at first but these have since been superseded by BMW 3-Series (E46) components. The current choice of engines consists of six-cylinder Nissan and Rover V8 units in a range of capacities and power outputs, while a five-speed manual gearbox is the only transmission on offer. The interior can be trimmed in leather or vinyl to customer choice, with a burr walnut dashboard available together with a choice of instruments.

    The Sebring SX roadster offered here is powered by a 3,500cc, fuel-injected and tuned Rover V8 Vitesse engine. 'VPD 60' is finished in the classic Austin-Healey colour scheme of light blue metallic over ivory, while the interior is trimmed in Bridge of Weir charcoal leather. Other noteworthy features include a walnut dashboard and door cappings; MotoLita steering wheel; double duck convertible hood in dark blue; stainless steel twin exhaust system; and new chromed wire wheels recently re-shod with new tyres. MoT'd to February 2016, the car comes with a photographic record of its construction; a Sebring International parts manual; and various manuals concerned with tuning the Rover V8 engine.
