Original Austin-Healey #2# The Restorer's Guide to 100 · 100/6 · 3000

by Anders Ditlev Clausager

For 15 years, from the first four-cylinder 100 of 1953 to the final 3000 MK. III of 1968, these wonderful Austin-Healeys were the British sports cars which thousands of red-blooded enthusiasts most aspired to. They had plenty of performance, immense charisma, exquisite styling and a first-class competition pedigree. They were a cut above MGs and Triumph TRs, yet more within reach than Jaguar XKs or E-types.

Unlike so many classic cars, these "Big Healeys" have never really fallen out of favour, but their desirability has taken off dramatically in recent years. Although unrestored examples can still be found, many cars have been rejuvenated by professional restorers and mechanically minded owners. But how many of these cars boast the completely original and authentic specification which the most discerning enthusiasts now demand? The information needed to determine how a restored car should look and what parts it should contain can be hard to find, but now help is at hand for all owners, restorers and enthusiasts in this book.

Drawing from factory records, parts lists and catalogues, as well as the accumulated knowledge of the most respected restorers, this book provides the evidence of what constitutes an authentic "Big Healey". The high quality colour photographs show every inch of our ten carefully selected cars, which are either in remarkably original condition or restored with fastidious attention to authenticity. From a one-owner-from-new 100 BN1 to a superbly original 3000 Mk. III BJ8, every permutation of "Big Healey" specification is covered in superb detail.

The definitive originality guide to one of Britain's greatest sports cars, this book is indispensible for all owners, restorers, buyers and enthusiasts.
