Not an Austin But a Healey Nonetheless

It is so clean looking that at first glance I thought it was a model. Superb.

The man who sold my dad our 100M had one that he offered to Dad (IIRC, he wanted $35K, about 15 years ago). Dad didn't like the Nash 'headlights in the grill' look and declined; I told him later he should have bought it, put it in the garage and thrown a tarp over it.

The early, pre-Pininfarina designed cars were cleaner looking IMO. Before I quit watching it, Dennis from the 'Fast & Loud' TV show--who owned an off-road parts house--had the first one he tried to auction off for $1M, but it only went to $500K. He also owned 'Goldie' last I checked.

Amazing car. Exhibits some 50s American car styling cues, including the grill badge. Many eccentric design details, like the rear quarter lights built into the hardtop and those curious tail fin pods with what appear to be air vents. Headlights built into the grill surround...just doesn't work for me.

John - there's a guy in NoCal somewhere who owns a restored Le Mans Nash Healey. It has a hemi head and triple 48 DCOEs. Saw this car on the California Mille a couple of years ago.
Same guy. The valve train on it is amazing. He may be coming to Conclave.

:congratulatory:To me it’s reminiscent of a Mercedes 190 SL with the headlight laden grill of an early Toyota Land Cruiser, Chrysler bumpers and the overall impact of a 1950’s deep freeze.:thirsty:
