The meticulous restoration has taken approximately 1500 man hours plus works by outside contractors for coachwork, chroming and machine work. The accompanying Heritage certificate states that 816 UYJ was originally supplied by Car Mart Sales Ltd, London with factory fitted equipment of wire wheels, Roadspeed tyres, adjustable steering column, laminated windscreen, overdrive, heater, servo assisted brakes, cigar lighter and grey tonneau cover. The original colour scheme was Colorado red with grey hood and trim. During the restoration the vendor decided to change the coachwork to Colorado red with white panels as he prefers the two-tone scheme and had the interior retrimmed in black leather with red piping. It cannot be emphasised enough how much time and effort has been lavished upon the big Healey during the restoration. Everything has been refurbished or renewed with emphasis on fitting and finish. The panel gaps are excellent and better than anything the factory ever managed. Since completion the Healey has covered approximately 600 shakedown miles and will require further running in. The hugh accompanying history file contains a photographic record of every aspect of the restoration (approximately 150 images), receipts for spare parts totalling approximately £20,000 from A H Spares alone, further receipts for bodywork, paintwork, machine work etc, Heritage certificate and sundry paperwork. 816 UYJ is truly an exceptional vehicle and a credit to our vendor’s hard work.
