This car is in auction on The Market website. The auction is LIVE now. The price shown is the lower estimate.

All bidding takes place on The Market (see photos for web address), plus you will find further text, over 90 photos/video fully illustrating the car and its service history, and the ability to ask questions directly to the seller. The text below is just a brief summary of our full description.

Vendor Tim Brooke bought this car back in 1991 from a chap in the Midlands. ‘He'd imported three from the US and had restored two of them, but didn't want to do the third,' he explains. ‘I took Steve Jarrett, then of specialist Northern Healey Centre, with me and we decided it was a decent base for a project.'

That project would take between four and five years to complete, with Tim carrying out the mechanical side of things himself and Northern Healey Centre looking after the other elements.

To get an idea of just how comprehensive the restoration was, consider the fact that there's four hundred and thirteen images (yes, 413!) in the Healey's Photographic Gallery, below. These include a full pictorial history of all elements of the rebuild itself, as well as every invoice attached to it.

‘I don't think I've ever thrown anything away; it's all there, every job sheet, every invoice, every MOT, every tax disc and every bill. It was a case of getting it back to being a perfect car and whatever it needed, it received.'

After stripping the car Tim had the shell blasted and a full body restoration carried out (more on that later). Both the engine and gearbox were stripped and rebuilt, and the braking and suspension systems were replaced. Finally, a new interior was fitted.

Tim tweaked the car for his own personal taste, choosing the Pale Primrose colour rather than it's original Red and adding a Works-type front grill. ‘I just felt every other Healey is Red or Healey Blue over Old English White, and for me the front overriders ruin the shape a bit. I wanted something different and for it to stand out a bit.'

Twenty-five years on, and after a lot of enjoyment, Tim's now 70 years old and ready to sell. ‘I have mixed feelings. I love the car – my middle son helped with the rebuild – but my wife no longer likes travelling in it. I'm getting emotional just talking about it…'
