This is a very early (body # 299) 3000 Mk 1 Big Healey, and a great restoration candidate.
It has a heater, adjustable steering wheel, and overdrive.
Car is a barn find from Indiana. Currently in Connecticut.
Car was dismantled and work started in the '90's. Motor supposedly has new rings and bearings. It has been painted and it does turn by hand. Rear end has been painted.
Car is essentially complete, and comes with four good fenders (in addition to the ones on the car), nine (9) 60 spoke wheels - the 4 on the car to roll it, and 5 with tires removed ready to be trued and repainted.
Items I know to be missing: Water pump, rear shocks, rear license plate bracket and lamp, badges, stainless fender trim, various nuts and bolts. If you don't see something please ask as I may have it, and just not photographed it.
Main chassis is solid and straight. There is rust in the trunk floor, rocker panels and two of the four outriggers.
There are some NEW parts: passenger seat sliders, a pair of door latches, muffler.
Please hit the contact seller button to ask questions, or if you would like to inspect the car, or have it inspected.
Car is located in East Haddam, CT 06423.
Car will be sold with a bill of sale, as Connecticut does not issue titles for cars over 20 years old. Car is sold as-is/where-is, with no warranty of any kind.
Seller will assist with shipping, but buyer is responsible for picking up the car and the parts.
Please ask questions before the auction ends.
Good luck and happy bidding!
