Rich Chrysler's "Introduction to Austin-Healey Restoration"


Country flag
I would love to get a copy of Rich Chrysler's book.
Where can I find a copy to download?

I'd start by contacting the club that printed it, the Austin-Healey Club of Southern Ontario, a chapter of the Austin-Healey Club of America (AHCA). Their contact information is, of course, in the AHCA Membership Directory, and a web search should also be productive.

However, a far better, far more current, and far, far, far larger and more comprehensive restoration guide would be the "Concours Guidelines" available through the Austin-Healey Concours Registry.

Here's Rich's article on John Sims' Healey6 website.

Another good read about how to do a restoration, rather than what is factory correct (Concours), is Roger Moment and Gary Anderson's series of articles titled "One Approach to Restoring an Austin-Healey". The 37 articles were published in Austin Healey Club USA's Austin-Healey magazine. The articles are available to club members as PDF files on the club's website.

Both the Austin Healey Club USA and Austin Healey Club of America have moved to new web platforms and their technical resources are not yet available.
