Description for Austin Healey 3000 1959

I am the third owner of this car. I bought this AH from the second owner last year who owned it since 1961. In 2011 there were many items done to this car to get it back on the road after being in storage for a number of years. Some of the items are: new stainless steel exhaust; replace rad hoses, thermostat and flush system; remove, repair and clean fuel tank, replace flex fuel line, rebuild fuel pump, clean and rebuild carbs; rebuild clutch master cylinder and slave cylinder, replace flex hose; drain and refill gearbox and overdrive; replace rear brake shoes and wheel cylinders, replace frontcallipers and brake pads, flush brake system; replace king pins, bushings and seals, replace anti sway bar bushings; sandblast and paint wire wheels, new tires.The interior is original along with the top and tonneau. The original owner wired an overdrive switch to the gear shift knob rather than use the switch on the dash. Dash switch is still operable as well. Car comes with a hard top. Maintanance manual is included.A paint job was done a few years ago along with lower repair panels on the front fenders. The paint job was done with the body on the car. This car is an excellent driver but needs a new interior.I cannot verify the mileage. The previous owner told me he had the odometer repaired at approximately 30,000 miles on the odometer.
