1953 Austin Healey 100
..with a surprise under the hood.
Sure, the Nissan/Datsun L-series six-cylinder is much easier to find parts for than an old Austin four or six, and likely produces more power for a quarter of the cost. But..ugh. This is a pile of money for a pile of vaguely-Healey-shaped bits.
If center-lock wheels were still fitted, then maybe. Build a hot Datsun-powered homage to the legendary LeMans racers for cheap. But it will take a bunch of work.
It’s on eBay in California for $15k or offer.
