100-4.
Previously owned 48 years, it says.

1954 car with what is presumably a period-correct engine, 331 hemi.

For me, it would benefit from some visual fettling.
Those front wheels, the front stance, the cut wheel openings, the air intake, that silly little windscreen.

Might be fun if it's properly sorted.

But then there's the price - 35,000 / $47,500. For a bizarre-looking left-hooker with no weather equipment in the UK. Haha.

Healey purist.

OK, to sooth your purities, how about this unusual, albeit barely described and poorly photographed, example, with insufficient cylinders for this forum, but a 3.4 Jag motor... is that better :)

Not sure who'll pay 42,500 for it though.

It's not that small of a windshield. It is just laid down, one of my favorites features of a 100-4.
