This great looking car has only come to the market due to the vendor having been offered the car he has coveted for years and his storage facilities only allows for 2 classics. First class history file, including MOT’s from ’97, old tax discs, photos of her being exhibited at the NEC (we think), built sheet from the V.P. owners club, press cuttings etc. Invoices for servicing are in 2 files, one is Mr Hill 1998 – 2017, the other Mr. Lower 2017 – 2019. In the file there is an invoice for £675 for the reconditioning of the gear box and OD unit in 2000, mileage reading 27,950. All the invoices show that this car has been very well looked after and serviced regardless of mileage covered. There is another file of correspondence with the VP Owners Club and there is a certificate, see appendix, which states she is only 1 of 500 made and she is fitted with a close ratio police specified gear box with a floor change. It also states that the restoration took place over 8 years in the eighties. These rare cars share the same engine as the early Healey 100-6 (102 BHP) which gives a brisk performance for her age, she is now 60 and top speed is just short of the ton. Handbooks plus a very rare original copy of the Autocar Magazine, dated 23.1.59 – turn to page 111 and you will find a road test report for these cars – For your comfort she is fitted with sheepskin rugs as over mats. This really is a cracking car in need of a good home. May be viewed by appointment after the July Classic Sale.
