Description for Austin Healey 100-6 1959

With a top speed of over a 100 Miles Per Hour, 0-60 times in the sub ten second range, fuel economy that averaged 20 MPG and looks to boot, these Healeys were as popular then as they are now. These 100-6's were only built from 1956 through 1959, they were the replacement for the 100 and then followed by the 3000. Together, they were known as the Big Healeys. This particular 100-6 that we are so pleased to present is... spectacular in every way. First of all, this is the second time in a year that we have been able to offer the car. The latest owner who purchased the car in Summer 2017 put just about 150 miles on it. Prior to Last summer, car came out of long term ownership with the second owner purchasing it in 1967. The car was used as a daily driver for several years while working at the University of Michigan. After several years the owner decided to have the car restored to its glory and in 1981 made the voyage to Lakeland, FL and Tsikuris Classics where it underwent a frame off restoration. Paul Tsikuris was a leader in Healeys at the time, so the car was done very well. Included with the sale are not only every receipt for the last fifty years, but also receipts for the restoration. This also includes hand written correspondents between the seller and Paul Tsikuris along with pictures. This tremendous auto is finished in Healey Blue over blue interior. It has a nice fitting soft-top, tonneau and side curtains. This is one of the easiest starting Healeys I have personally had the pleasure of offering. The car runs and drives excellent as well with good brakes and tires. However, keep in mind that although the paint has held up tremendously well, it is nearly a 40 year old restoration with some shrinking in the paint. This car comes ready to be enjoyed with all documentation included. Most recently the Healey has just had a service that included inspection and full fluid changes. You do not want to miss this car.
