Now Sold

 

FNN 635C is an Austin Healey 3000 MKIII convertible that was built in July 1965 as a personal export car for despatch to North America. Build specification was as a left hand drive car with extras including an adjustable steering column, wire wheels, overdrive, heater, laminated windscreen, road speed tyres, Black tonneau and a front number plate. The car was given a body off restoration by Big Healey restorations including a full chassis repaint in British Racing Green and a re-trim in black Connolly leather in 1992. The restoration is documented with photographs included in the history file. The car during restoration was finished to pleasing standards of quality with nice panel fit throughout (doors and swage lines aligning well and consistent boot or bonnet gaps). The finish achieved to the paint is good and the surface is smooth and ripple-free enabling crisp reflections through the paint. The car has clearly been cared for since as the condition of this car still remains very presentable throughout. FNN 635C has been maintained by Rawles Motorsport Ltd. Peter Ellis and forge garage for the last three owners on a regular basis and the file details this maintenance, many parts have been fitted. MOTS with the car show mileage in 2001 as 3157. Bills from 2015 to date again list many parts including badges and bright work and new tyres, in 2012 we rebuilt the steering box and rebushed the suspension. In 2013 we worked on the bodywork and fitted a new boot lid and wax oiled the car. In 2014 we fitted halogen lights, upgraded the cooling system and fitted a new exhaust system. In 2015 we refurbished the engine to fast road specification, fully balanced, upgraded camshaft, aluminum gas flowed head, lightened flywheel (plus more) and refurbished the gearbox and overdrive at a cost of £10,000. The performance of this car is excellent; a much recommended drive and excellent, reliable long distance car. Available as a left hand drive car for £66,000.
