Description


Seller description

Dennis the Menace is a very special Austin Healey. Maintained and modifiedto high standards by one long term owner. Beginning with a low mileage rust free and straight Healey theAustin driveline was removed and disposed of, the chassis reinforced anda FORD engine was installed with a Tremac 5 speed manual transmission. Recently after 12 years the clutch was replaced. Some of the mods area fully fusedwiring harness encompassing modern lighting and charging circuits. New disc brakes, competition springs, period correct traction bars. The 3:9 rear axle ratio is exactly what you need to get off the line fast and cruising at 110 kmh at 2200 rpm. Straight pipe glass packed exhaust that has been carefully routed to the exact place as the original. Caerbont Smiths GPS Speedometer in KMH is always accurate. Caerbont Smiths Tach. Working Halda Speedpilot and Butler Flexi Light. Recent 60 spoke (look way better than stainless 72 spoke) painted Dunlop 5 inch wide wire wheels, a very rare Derrington style wood steering wheel as it should be so you have full vision of the gauges.Leather interior, period correct Irvin Air Chute Seat Belts Lucas driving lights, REAL Aston Martin alloy fuel filler from the fifties, No body modifications and nothing chopped to fit the engine. Ford engines are narrower than Chevrolet engines so they fit with no mod needed. Just as Carrol and Donald would have liked. Quality paint finish in Ferrari Corsa Roso. Has the clean look of an old 166MM Barchetta. All weather equipment, soft top, tonneau and curtains are in good to excellent condition.This car needs nothing and is ready for your enjoyment now. Not a back yard builthot rod but a fully developed example. It is a wonderful road and rally car, comfortable, tractablewith tremendous performance when called upon.Smoothly pulls from 1000 RPMin any gear all the way to6500 RPM without hesitation. AND this car still has the look of a period correct road car. No rally vents here. Austin Healey folklore describes how Carrol Shelby actually contacted Donald Healey about creating this type of car but Healey could not due to his obligations to Austin. We all know what happened when Shelby joined forces with Ford and AC.

In the fifties and sixties quite a few Healey V8 conversions competed in various races and did quite well, often defeating far more sophisticated machinery. There is a very interesting article on page 30 in the January 2019 Austin Healey Club of America's monthly magazine Healey Marque, describing a V8 race car, the small block powered Cor-D-Leyracing to victory in the 250 mile Nassau Trophy race beating teams from Germany, England and Italy. Another article on britishv8 dot org Shelby Healey talks about the fact that Ted Sutton was given the job of installing a 427 in the Cobra because Shelby was so impressed with the Ford Sutton Healey. The Austin Healey Club of America recognizes these modified Healey's and has named them 'Nasty Boys". I have owned over 20 big Healey's in my lifetime including a full works Rally Replica that I competed in race and rallies all over western Canada and I have to say this car leaves them in the dust. A real COBRA KILLER. This is simply themost dependableand best performing Healey I have ever had the pleasure of driving.Available for inspection by appointment. Look at the pictures The shut lines all match. This car does not need to come apart. Email any questions. Check my feedback, you will be more than happy with this Healey. I am not a dealer just an individual who collects and enjoys outstanding cars. Thank you for your interest.I have had lots of questions about my car.Paint is an 8. Been a while since it was done but held up well.I have raced and rallied a big Healey. They are bullet proof as is mechanically and the only reason for swapping the drive train is for increased horsepower and better handling. The Ford Sm Blk weighs 506 lbs and sits further back in the Healey Chassis with no major mods necessary. A small block GM is 575 lbs. Compare this to approx. 675 lbs that a Big Healey Six cylinder weighs. Fitting a GM engine in a Healey Chassis requires a bit of mods as it is not as compact as the Ford small block.
