Price for the vehicle is $11,900. Factory equipped Hardtop is valued at$5,000+ A reproduction one from England is $5,000.NewParts including factory equipped hardtop are valued at $7402.00+.(see list below) That makes the price of the car realistically sellingat aroundforty fivehundredwithout these parts. I was offered $4500 for the hardtop alone. (The figure of $2000 in the listing section above the photos was an entry error.) Recommend engine be rebuilt due to 30+ year dry storage. I will be available and welcomeanybuyer whowants to have pre-purchase examination done by him or herself or third party. Frame is overall solid but there are somesmall pin holes under where floor pans were mounted on top of frame rails.The frame rails side underneath facing the ground are solid and look like the sides of the rails in the photos below (no holes)Floor pans were removed as were fenders and doors toaccessframe and wheel well panels for restoration. this also will make restoration easier. Thefloor pans need to be fitted are currently available onEbay for $150 a pair. Out riggers should be replaced and are readily available and reasonably priced as well.Like any 60 year old unrestored Britishcar it will require some metal patching and repair patch panels.Photos of these areas needing patch panels can be seen in the photos but for more clarification call me to discuss at 215-284-2118.The vehicle shows various sections where sheet metal paint prep was begun, hence the primer color on some sections in the photos. If you have questions regarding vehicle please call 215-284-2118. Please no texts. Email questions are fine. Engine, transmission, rear are in vehicle, instrument cluster dash also included as well as convertible top frame. Drive shaft is missing but readily sourced and reasonably priced. Companies like Victoria British sell the majority of sheet metal as well as most parts for these vehicles. Check restored and unrestoredAH 100-6's currently for sale on Ebay. Prices for these vehicles are steadily rising like Jaguar XKE's. Restored, these Healeys bring the price of an XKE but for a limited time are cheaper to purchase and are easier to restore than an EType but the financialreturn is about the same.Manyrestored Austin Healeys are selling in the $60,000-90,000 dollar range withtheoccasional 6 figure cars . These cars are definitely worth the restoration investment and most parts are readily available on the internetand reasonably priced compared to other high priced classics.They obviously are not making anymore of these famous British Muscle Cars and every year that passes unrestored examples like this are becoming harder and harder to locate. They are becoming as hard to locate as an unrestored XKE or Sunbeam Tiger. This car is documented as factory black with red interior. (a rarer color). These cars were simply made and are not that complex to restore. New wiring harnesses, trim pieces, sheet metal, mechanical bits are all out there either new or used. We all remember the days when you could buy a an unrestored Jaguar XKE for 12to 16 thousand dollars. Those days are gone, never to return. They will be soon over also for these Big Healey's as well. We all have the "I could have" or "I should have" stories. I have had several calls on this car from Italy and eastern Europewhere therestoration rate is 1/5 what it is here in the states and yet the return investment for a restoredBig Healeyis comparable to the states. For more pictures of frame please email me at makomarine2@cs.com

I have collected and driven British Vehicles for fifty years. I have owned this car since 1989 and it has been in dry storage in my garage since then. I am selling it because I amselling off my collection of restored and unrestored vehicles. I am concentrating my effortson my early Jaguars. Please no offers or trades considered. Vehicle is realistically priced at $11,900, considering documented British Motor Heritage build documents, today's market, vehicle's condition and included new parts and factory installed hardtop.
