History:

Documents show that the car was dispatched May 29th, 1964. As shown in the magazine cover and dealer registration, it was purchased Nov 1964 by the orginal owner Mr. Cofflet where she lived most of her charmed life. In 2005 it was purchased by Villella family where she was enjoyed before going through a full rotisserie restoration in 2009 by the renowned Healey Frank Wicker. Frank's web site is (https://flic.kr/s/aHskM7i2mX)www.wickerizedhealey.com (http://www.wickerizedhealey.com). The car has been driven less than 500 miles since the restoration as you can see in the pictures and stored in a heated garage. I purchased the car 2014 and handed her over to Reid Trummel, editor-publisher of Healey Marque magazine, the official publication of the Austin-Healey Club of America (www.healeyclub.org (http://www.healeyclub.org)). Reid's shop Commonwealth Classics Ltd woke the car up from a long state of hibernation and gone through the following: All fluids flushed, new hubs, all new brake lines sine there was a small leak (now using Silicon fluid for much better performance, new distributer cap and points, recore the radiator and new gas tank. In all over $8,000 paid to get done and done right by the best. I do have receipts.
