2007 Austin-Healey Replica

Established in 1952, Austin-Healey was a joint venture between Austin motor company and Donald Healey. After creating the Nash Healey in 1951, Donald Healey identified a gap in the market for a sports car that could reach 100 MPH, was more refined than an MG but less expensive than a Jaguar. One of the most popular Austin Healey’s was the 3000 with a powerful inline 6 cylinder

This car is a replica built by the well-known Woodley Healey company based in Paarl. They build a new chassis clothed with a fiberglass body in the style of the Austin Healey 3000 models. A modern drivetrain is sourced from the e30 BMW with base models using the 2.0l straight six M20 engine with higher spec models using the 2.5l and 2.8l examples.

This example was purchased in the Garden route four years ago by the current owner. It was then a more basic specification with a reference photo in the gallery below. The owner commissioned Woodley Healey to carry out upgrades which included the following:

  • Respray to Metallic Grey
  • Upgrade to wire wheels (car originally had alloy wheels)
  • Suspension upgrade to accommodate wire wheels.
  • Replaced all uprights and calipers
  • Interior reupholstered to red
  • New original style dashboard fitted.
  • New original style gauges
  • New classic style steering wheel
  • Electrical system rebuilt
  • Modern radio with reverse camera fitted
  • New stainless steel fuel tank fitted

Recently the exhaust and welsh plugs were replaced.

This is an opportunity to purchase a unique retro style car with a modern drivetrain that has seen the bulk of the upgrades completed at great expense. Most of the budget was spent on cosmetic upgrades where some attention to detail and finishing is required in the following areas:

  • Suspension setup (ride is extremely hard currently) – coil over suspension fitted all round
  • Engine tuning
  • There are a few oil leaks that must be attended to
  • Fit and finish of exterior trim needs attention.
  • Electrical system needs to be finished to a higher standard.
  • Practical items such as windscreen washers, rear view mirror and sun visors must be fitted

This car is good for someone with the skills to take the potential of this interesting car across the line
