According to the Heritage-Trust Certificate, this Healey was exported to Philadelphia on the 11th of June 1963. After importation into Austria the car was restored by "The Healey Factory" without any compromises accepted. While being restored, the coachwork was altered to represent one of the legendary Works-Rally cars, including a new front with integrated auxiliary headlights, a slotted bonnet and the obligatory side vents. The finished body was then painted in the classic combination of ivory white with blue. To match its competition appearance, the technical side received a number of upgrades as well, such as an aluminium cylinder head with three twin-choke Weber carburetors, a forged crank shaft together with forged conrods, Cosworth pistons, a competition stainless steel exhaust manifold connected to a side exhaust as per factory racing specs. To cope with the increased performance, a high performance water radiator and an oil cooler were installed. The 4-speed gearbox is complemented by a strengthened overdrive unit (for 3rd and 4th gears). The frame was strengthened as well and bigger stabilizers, dampers and springs were installed. Enlarged brake calipers and rotors as well as a brake servo keep all the performance in check and complete the transformation into a competitive rally or racing Healey. The car was only driven about 1'000 km since completion and is therefore still in outstanding condition, with Swiss paperwork and having been awarded Swiss Veteran status successfully during its latest MOT which took place in August 2017.
