Originally built in Abingdon, September 1961 and exported to N. America. I purchased this car in California in 2004, and imported it back to the UK that year.
Over the next few years I personally carried what is a unique restoration, and have made many improvements since. My intention has been to improve the driveability, reliability and performance whilst maintaining the original character and appearance of this iconic vehicle.

A summary of work carried out:

Specialised work on the engine components was performed by Denis Welch Motorsport. DW engine parts fitted include alloy head, alloy sump, DWR8 fast road cam, bucket followers, tubular pushrods, hydraulic timing chain tensioner, gear type oil pump and tubular exhaust manifold with 2" exhaust. The flywheel was lightened and Cosworth pistons, competition harmonic balancer, reduction starter and spin on oil filter fitted.
The transmission is original 4 speed gear box and overdrive, overhauled in 2014. The rear axle ratio was changed to 3.54:1 to reduce engine RPM.
The electrical system is -ve earth, with alternator, CSI fully electronic ignition, and high level LED rear brake light.
The fuel system has a Facet electronic pump and filter/regulator unit, supplying the original triple carb setup
A custom cold air intake system was fabricated, incorporating a K&N filter.
Big Healeys have a reputation for overheating, and the car has a 5 blade fan, enlarged radiator core, Pacet electric fan and custom baffle system to provide adequate cooling at speed, or standing in traffic.
The front suspension incorporates offset upper trunnion bushes and uprated anti roll bar. To the rear, uprated springs and DW anti roll bar kit. The rear brakes were recently overhauled. New Motor Wheel Service stainless/chrome tubeless wire wheels, hubs and spinners fitted in 2016.
Removable pedal extensions are fitted to give a more "modern" driving position.
The car has covered some 29000 miles since first returned to the road and has accumulated some blemishes but is still in excellent condition. The panel fit and surface finish are substantially better than when the car left the factory.
I have driven this car through Scotland, France and Spain on holidays and camping trips without problems, and it will cruise all day at motorway speeds. My aim has always been to have a car meant to travel, not sit in a garage.
Ready to drive home!

Hood and frame, blue tonneau and rail, jack etc included.

Reluctant sale. Contact by email or WhatsApp for further info.
