1965 Austin Healey Other Roadster Additional Info:

Very nice Austin Healy 1965 Sebring Roadster replica by Classic Roadsters. A real head-turner of a car in the classic European style that was professionally built in 1989 with engine rebuilt in 2005/2006. The car was only driven 400 miles in the last 8 years -- until this fall, when it was driven regularly on short and long distance trips. It's a cool little car that's very responsive – a real pleasure to drive.
The only negative is the paint. The Candy Red with metal flake color is perfect for the car but there are small bubbles that appeared all over. There's also a gas stain below the filler. The passing gear kick-down doesn't work, probably needs linkage connected. The car has a clear "Recreational" title.
