1966 Austin Healey 3000 Description

Up for auction is my 1966 Austin Healey 3000 MKIII. Its a great little car. I originally owned this car back in the 80's in Northern California. I stripped down and completely restored the car when I was about 25 years old. Unfortunately I had to sell the car to my boss back in the late 80's with one condition, if he ever sold it he'd offer it to me first. Fortunately, about three years ago, and after 30 years, he decided to sell it and I was the first person he called. When I got the car back it did need a little help but I put some love, and money of course, into it to bring it back to life and to driver condition. So here is a little info about the car. As far as I know, the engine, transmission, and rear end are original to the car butcan't provide proof. I have done some repairs to the car. New Leaf Springs and New Hubs on the rear end. New S U Fuel Pump. I had the Generator Rebuilt. New brake fluid Reservoir.
While most of the features on the car work, some thingsaren't working properly. The Tachometer works but not all the time. It probably needs to be rebuilt or adjusted. Horn does not work, i'm not sure why. Also the driver and passenger windowswon't roll back up for some reason. i'm guessing they just need some lubrication.
Last fall I had a brand newConvertible top professionally installed. I had new interior installed in the 80's when I originally owned the car and its still in great shape. It could just use a little freshening but its in usable condition. The paint work is driver quality. It could use a paint job or just drive it how it is in its driver condition.
This Healey runs strong, the transmission is great and has the electric overdrive which works great. The 72 stainless Spokes and chrome rims and hubs accent the car very well. Also the Vredestein Sprint Classic tires are brand new. Maybe 15 miles on them.
Pleasedon'thesitate to call or message me with questions. I'm willing to ship world wide. It's buyersresponsibility to arrange shipping. Good luck bidding. I have set what I think is a fair reserve on the listing.
