Founded in 1994. Sebring International based in Cheltenham. br/>Gloucestershire produce a range of open-top sports cars including
the SX. TMX. MXR. ZX and Exalt. Using fibreglass or metal bodywork. br/>the style is reminiscent of the classic Austin-Healey 3000 sports
cars produced between 1959 and 1967. The name derives from the
Sebring International Raceway in the USA. at which Austin-Healey
cars were very successful.

The vendor of this Sebring MX purchased this example with his
son some years ago and being the owner of a large garage he and his
son set about improving the car. Presented in metallic blue with
black interior. this now represents a car that can be considered
far better engineered than when new.

Along with stripping all suspension and brakes. the V8 engine
and gearbox were removed and the engine was sent to Real Steel
which resulted in. amongst other things. a conversion to the four
barrel Holley. The engine was stripped and heads removed and found
to be in good order. but all gaskets and seals were replaced and on
recommendation from Real Steel a new up rated distributor was
fitted. Due to the increased power. up rated callipers and high
performance pads were also installed. It was whilst working with
the brakes that the Sebring was found to have been produced with
the brake pedal and clutch too close so the vendor had this
fabricated so that a reasonable distance existed between the
pedals; this idea was so good and fitted so successfully that
Sebring adopted this design for all future cars. Suspension was
replaced with new Coilovers and the radiator replaced with a high
performance unit along with a Kenlowe electric fan. The list of
further enhancements are countless and the cost of this build would
run in to many more thousands but with the vendor's son all grown
up. the car is not being used and the decision has been made to
pass it on.

We are assured that any prospective driver would back off before
finding the limits of this car's potential; it would certainly be
hard to find a more exiting example of the Sebring Healey replica -
the question is. are you brave enough to turn the key?
