The car was done like this over 45 years ago and is used quite often on a farm/ranch. No cry for attention and the owner was and is, a really nice guy. He hesitated to bring it as he didn't know how he would be received. Everyone received him well at Conclave and were all very glad he came. 
   It's really an amazing engineering job, runs like the wind and when I post the video I did for Conclave, you will see it on the gymkhana course. I agree, not everyone's cup of tea, but an amazing build and is used all the time. Purpose built, just done really well.

Desperate cry for attention is all I can figure. It would go over big in the redneck, brodozer-beseiged area where I reside.

I'm hoping on hope the body is one of the plastic Healey knock-offs--Saxon, etc.--not a real Healey.

I wonder what could possibly possess someone to do something like this to an Austin-Healey?

Hello, Healeyphiles -


A friend sent me the attached photo of a car at Conclave.   Sure is one way to solve the ground clearance problem.

Does anyone know if the donor car was a BJ7 or a Phase 1 BJ8?
