I believe that since the car sold, its reserve was met, so both the buyer and the seller would be satisfied with the results.
This is a model that about 5 years ago would have sold for very close to $100,000.00 US for a car in this condition. I believe that the market has softened overall, in the last few years, for Austin-Healeys as a whole, that combined with a reluctance by American buyers to purchase cars from Canada, due to various reasons, shipping across borders, the paperwork involved etc. May have kept this car from achieving a higher sale price.
While there were only 355 of these cars made, I also think their rarity is overblown in my opinion, they are basically the same as any 2 seater Austin-Healey with a 6 cylinder engine, with one extra carburettor.

Here's the reference to the final sale of the two-seat tri-carb...


What does the group think --- Fair price in today's market, overvalued or undervalued?

What would you have expected to pay for a similar car?
