UPDATE – 05.20.2011 – The car has been sold. New owner has picked it up and currently it is being restored in Atlanta.
Today’s installment takes us to the proverbial “barn find”. Yes the “barn find” is alive and well… You just have to be a) lucky and b) lucky.
The barn find I am talking about here is a 1964 Austin Healey 3000 – the “Big Healey”. This car was found over the weekend by a friend of mine. After some negotiating the car was purchased and brought to my cousin Jim’s shop. The car is 100% complete. The paint you see in the following pictures is all original – it has a very nice patina. The red interior appears to be also original as well as the black carpet.
The part that is interesting is this: the car IS FOR SALE. If you are interested, please drop me a line and I can get you in touch with the owner. However, please don’t pull my chain on this: serious inquiries only. In addition to the car, there is a huge folder full of original sales documents, receipts and period-magazines with articles about the car.
Interested? Send me a message. Here are some pictures:
