Deposit taken within 2 days of advertising :

1961 Austin Healey 3000 MKIIA WFO 470 presented as a very tidy clean and good example of the MKIIA car that is an excellent driving car.

WFO 470 is a very good example of the attractive MKIIA Healey; this rare and popular specification offers all the advantages of the late models with the simpler dash layout of the early cars.

The car is finished in Colorado red with black interior, is very clean and drives very well. Worked on by us in recent years and recommended.

This car was originally imported from the USA around 1997, when it was converted to right hand drive and substantially rebuilt by John Chatham.

In 1998/9 Alan Cameron of Old Dairy classics rebuilt the engine.

The previous owner purchased WFO 470 in 2003 and during his ownership the car has been well looked after with visits to Rawles Motorsport Ltd. Since 2003 new parts fitted include; new front callipers, high torque starter motor, spin on oil filter, new rear shock absorbers, new aluminium fuel tank, rear brake shoes, rear wheel bearings, king pin, top trunions, overhauled gearbox and overdrive (Hardy’s), new clutch, rear springs, steering box, tie rods, Mallory distributor, battery, wiring loom and stator tube assembly. 

Since 2003 the car has driven approximately 9000 miles.
