Originally supplied to Florida USA in December 1965 and subsequently re-imported to the UK and restored on behalf of the current owner by JME Healeys, (Jonathan Everard), son of the factor foreman in Donald Healey's factory. Jonathan was an apprentice working alongside his father and remembered working on this car whilst it was under manufacture. The car now resides in Guernsey. Heritage certificate supplied with the car as well as a comprehensive history file. More recently it was a Guernsey Classic car show winner. Matching number car.
Finished in its original colour of Old English White and in excellent condition
Restored and re-build and transferred over to RHD. Excellent oil pressure, now or hardly worn tyres, indicating little use since its rebuild. Great driver.
Walnut burr dash board, wooden & alloy steering wheel, chrome wire wheels and re-trimmed in Ferrari Almond White with blue piping and blue Wilton Carpets. Black hood, wind up windows & seat belts fitted
The car drives beautifully with excellent performance and handling. The gearbox is in top order and is fitted with a highly responsive overdrive coupled with an engine that delivers smooth, powerful acceleration and the finest Healey roar! One of the best MKIII examples available today.
