Wrong color cool smiley ...green is too dark....

My HS GF was a bit rebellious back then. Her folks told her "no convertibles...", "no foreign cars...", "no manual transmissions...", "no fast/racy type cars...", "must have real back seat....", etc..

So she got a 1966 Healy seemingly just to piss off her folks. Of course back then it was just a couple of years old, and a lot less than $30K - $40K.

Thanks for the blast from the past.

the mom of my hs/college gf had an austin healey, and the previous owner swapped in the drivetrain from an early Mustang. very reliable.

That's actually a pretty good price for a damn nice car.



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

The Healey 3000s I had were reliable, though they weren't old back then. Even the "Prince of Darkness" Lucas electrical stuff didn't give me much grief.

I am sure the Prince only gets darker as he gets older. grinning smiley

Maybe. The auction isn't over yet and the reserve price hasn't been met.

That exhaust system is going to quickly be damaged.

And it’s no longer available. Not a bad price; perhaps they are coming down in price (I can only hope).

Yeah, $33.1K and it didn't actually sell because the reserve wasn't met. I imagine it will be relisted.

It was normal to see the exhaust systems on them damaged. With the '66 or '67 models, the rear springs were changed to increase the ride height. It helped, but the car didn't look right. The rear wheels looked too low in the wheelwells, and it did something to the lines at the back of the car.

Hookers and booze would have a better ROI.
