Car was at auction 3/10

Auction description:
Lot : 25
1959 Austin-Healey 3000 MkI
Estimate:
NOT SOLD
Registration No: XSV 467
Chassis No: HBT7L2540
Engine No: 29DRVH3118
CC: 2900
Colour: O.E.W.
Trim Colour: Burgundy
MOT:Feb 2011

Finished in Old English White over Burgundy with Burgundy leather / vinyl upholstery, this particular example is described by the vendor as being in "good" order with regard to its engine, four-speed manual plus overdrive gearbox, electrical equipment, interior trim, bodywork and paintwork. A comparatively early 3000 MKI, 'XSV 467' is thought to have led something of a charmed life in Southern California before being repatriated to these shores and converted to right-hand drive during 1990. Believed but not warranted to have covered circa 62,000 miles from new, the Healey has been fitted with a later type centre-change gearbox (a most sought after upgrade). While, we are also informed that "the car's panel fit is particularly good as is the condition of its underside which shows no signs of any damage". A tempting proposition, this attractively hued 3000 is offered for sale with MOT certificate valid until February 2011.
