The Cockpit also Features Electronic Custom Gauges with Intergrated Warning Lights as well as a Wood Rimmed Moto-Lita Derrington Style Steering Wheel, with Stalk Operated Headlights and Indicators.
The Mechanical Package Includes, but is Not Limited To, a 302ci DART Windsor Block, taken out to 363ci, with a Forged Crankshaft, I-Beam Rods, Forged Pistons, Hydraulic Roller Cam, Roller Rockers, Aluminium AFR Renegade 58cc Heads, Custom Ceramic Coated Extractors and Exhaust, Alloy Inlet Manifold with Quad IDA Weber Downdraft Carburettors, MSD Ignition, Billet Steel Flywheel, High Output Alternator and Hi Torque Starter.
The Superb Power is Delivered through a 5 Speed Tremec Gearbox, Custom Tailshaft and 3.5:1 ‘Healey Factory’ Limited Slip Differential to the 15×7” Well Laced, 72 Spoke Dayton Chrome Wire Wheels, while the Braking has been Upgraded to Power Assisted, Twin Circuit Discs, with AP Racing Front Calipers, and Ceramic Coated Lamborghini Miura Calipers Rear. To Assist with the Vastly Improved Performance, the Lever Arm Shock Absorbers have been Replaced with Koni Telescopic Shocks Front and Rear, whilst the Steering utilises a Healey Factory Custom Steering Rack and Pinion Setup.
This Healey has an Intoxicating Level of Power and Torque, which is Effortlessly Transferred to the Road, Allowing for Spirited Drives, while still Very Much Capable of Long Range Touring in Comfort. A Bespoke Build, to the Highest of Standards, this V8 Widebody Healey is an Exceptionally Rare Opportunity to Purchase a ‘Cost No Object’ Over Capitalised Passion Project, Looking The Part on Both a Healey Club Run, and on Display at ‘Maguire’s MotorEx’.
