1954 Austin Healey 100-4 with Chevy 327 V-8 Corvette Motor

I am pleased to offer this 1954 Austin Healey 100-4 with Chevy 327 V-8 motor. This is a great, albeit non-traditional setup for those who actually want to drive their vintage Healey. Classic British styling with American Chevy reliability. Sounds like a good argument to me. VIN # is WA78111786 and mileage shows 18,250 (presumed to be mileage since car was built).
