It came fitted from the factory with all of the desired options like wire wheels, heater and overdrive. does come with the original British Motor Corporation radio. The paint and the body are both in good condition. The paint is an older re-spray that still looks outstanding. Of course a few minor chips and scratches as would be expected and some light popping on the right side dogleg. The body is absolutely solid with only a small area of rust worth mentioning at the leading edge of the drivers floor.
The interior is the original Ambla upholstery and in very good condition. The carpeting (relatively new), trim, door panels and dash pad are all in very good and serviceable condition. The steering wheel and dash varnish are both showing their "Healey age". The wire wheels and tires are presentable with tires having like new tread.. The convertible top and corresponding seals are all brand new and fit the car like they were designed.
Runs and drives out very well. From a fresh service with carburetor rebuild, brake overhaul (including master and booster) among other things, it is definitely ready for the road. The engine is very strong with the clutch and transmission working as they should, although I'm not currently certain about the overdrive.
The Healey sounds and looks great in part due to having recently had a Stainless Steel exhaust system installed. Overall chrome is very good with some pitting on the upper grille surround and rear bumper. The original "Triplex Laminated" windscreen stamp is still clear and outside of some wiper marks, the glass is in good shape. Mileage is very low for it's age, but a close approximation.
