1960 Austin Healey 3000 Additional Info:

This Austin Healey 3000 is a very solid candidate for restoration. A restoration was started years ago, new parts were purchased for the car, and then the restoration stalled for a number of years and we purchased the car. I've had many big Healeys in the past and this is the most solid unrestored one that I've seen.
The car has been on a lift and we have looked closely at the frame of the car and the body panels. The frame is very solid with no rust found. Amazingly, the floorboards are still in very good condition. The body panels are in good condition and there appears to be only very minor body work done including a patch on the bottom side of the drivers side quarter panel behind the door. The only rust found on the car is a small amount in the left trunk area floorpan, an easy repair.
The engine turned easily when we got the car and with a hot battery the engine ran on a remote fuel source. It wasn't run long but it sounded good and I do not believe that this engine would require a full rebuild. The hydraulics of the car including the brakes and clutch, of course, will need to be rebuilt. Because of this, the car can't be driven but rolls and steers fine.
Most of the minor trim was removed from the car for restoration and we have sorted thru the parts and I see very little missing. Included in the parts are both headlight buckets and trim rings, wiper arms with nos blades in the box, ashtray, door handles and latches, front grill trim, convertible top frame and hardware, new bumper and bumper overriders and brackets, turn signal bases (no lenses), both front seat frames are there but the bottom cushion is missing on both, rear seats, spare wheel, and much more. The car will need a new windshield and rear window for the hardtop. Please message me for a link to more detailed photos.
