Have it your way: ’60 Austin-Healey MK I
Sometimes you just have to appreciate a car for what it is and not what it is supposed to be. Take this ’60 3000 MK I for example. It was born Colorado Red with Black interior and now it is Green and Cream with Green interior. It has no bumpers, a pair of serious driving lights and a motor from heaven. We want it just the way it is. Let the concours judge pass you by. On the road, it will be the other way around. It is a really early MK I with chassis #434, that’s about 333 chassis from the start. The 2-seaters are rare compared to the 4-seaters. They only built 2,825 of them. The original engine on this one has had some serious thought put into it. It has forged pistons, triple Webers, lightened flywheel and an aluminum radiator. The interior was done with high quality leather and wool carpets. Much better than the original stuff. It has a canvas top, tonneau and side curtains. We like the painted wires a lot but wonder would it might look like with the cream-colored wheels instead. there is also a clever period 3rd brake light installed for additional safety. The asking price is $59500 and although not inexpensive, it represents a lot of value. You wouldn’t be able to recreate it for the price. Click here for the listing.
