The 3000 stems from the original 100-4 that was introduced in 1953, evolving over time, becoming more powerful, more refined, more usable. In comparison to the more expensive Jaguars and Aston Martins, the Big Healey was really the only affordable British sports car that offered competitive performance.
Nothing severe but worth noting. The new vinyl soft top has no imperfections, fits well, and its accompanying weather gear is in just as good condition. The chrome wire wheels are in perfect condition, mounted on a set of fresh tires.
9L powerplant starts with ease and runs smoothly. The engine is mated to a new 5-speed Toyota sourced gearbox, which has replaced the stock 4-speed, again, to grant the driver enhanced usability and increased performance. The gearbox has a short, gratifying, and precise throw, allowing the user to effortlessly shift from gear to gear.
