If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
Purity of a true roadster side curtain body, no heavy windows to break the style.
The smoothness and sound that can only come from a straight six engine
Enough power to run with modern traffic
Overdrive gearbox for relaxed cruising at higher speeds
2+2 seating to share the experience with children or sideways sitting friends
Chrome wire wheels
Something beautiful to behold, setting in your drive or going down the road
Fully sorted and ready to enjoy
If those criteria match yours, the answer list has become much shorter. This beautiful Austin Healey 3000 Mk 1 is clearly on that short list.
It is indeed a well sorted car having seen regular summer use in recent years and owned and cared for by an engineer who is also a classic car professional.
Perhaps the most important consideration of any classic sports car is condition of the body work and frame. Rust is the nemesis of most old cars and body and paint work is the most expensive undertaking to make right. So number one, make sure its right when you buy it. We invite a close inspection of this Austin Healey. It has a solid frame and solid body and properly cared for will continue to have for many years to come.
Although mechanical maintenance and repair on these cars is quite affordable, this one is set to go now. The engine starts easily and its excellent oil pressure attests to a strong bottom end. It runs without any bad noises or smoke or overheating that portends of potential problems. The brakes and steering inspire confidence. The transmission shifts well and a smooth clutch adds to the driving experience.
The interior is a mix of old and new but nothing of the old exhibits excessive wear. This is a car to drive and enjoy. It might not win a Concours but you can drive it 500 miles to a show and not worry about getting there and back.
We welcome you to see, inspect, and experience driving this car. Our shop and showroom is located just a mile from the St. Louis airport. We will happily accommodate third party inspections as well. For more information, call or text Mike at 573-579-4617 or email to Mike@ItsAliveAuto.com.
Thank you for considering Its Alive Automotive.
