Selling Your Austin Healey?
Austin Healeys were produced from 1952-72. The cars were raced in the Le Mans and the Sebring circuits. Austin Healey was recognized by the Sports Car Club of America from its onset. The D and E Austin Healey production classes have won National Championships. In 1953 several land speed records were set by an Austin Healey at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. No wonder you can have so much interest when you sell Austin Healey.
There are basically two models, the 100-4 and 100-6, and 3000 series. The Austin Healey 3000 was built from 1959 to 1967. It came in two models a 2+2 and a two-seater. The original Mark I has a 2912cc engine with twin carburetors and front disc brakes. The Mark II had an improved camshaft and three carburetors. In 1963 the Mk III was introduced. It was the most powerful and luxurious. You’ll find walnut veneer on the dash, wind-up windows, and a 150 horsepower engine. The exhaust had a new design and servo-assisted brakes cam standard. Only 2+2 Austin Healey 3000s were for sale.
“I made a writeup of the car as it sits and emailed it to several Hemmings advertisers from people or companies wanting Austin Healeys. I had had mine for some 50 years but finally faced the fact that I could no longer work on it. I got a call the same day from Alex Manos making me an offer that was in the range that I was expecting so I accepted. His assistant, Allison overnighted me a cashiers check along with a bill of sale and other pertinent forms which I overnighted back. Shortly thereafter, I was contacted by a trucking agent and we had agreed that anytime after the holidays would be fine for picking up the car. It was all handled as smoothly and professionally as anyone could expect.”
“Very professional and efficient.”
“Alex was great to work with, and the support from his team was also great! I highly recommend and would use his services again in a second!”
“Prior to his recent passing, my uncle gave me some final instructions. Among those were to “sell the cars”. He had restored many cars and notably were the Austin Healey 3000’s. I contacted Alex and after a pleasant negotiation, a fair price was arrived at for two restored cars and a disassembled 1966 model. Quick payment followed by very efficient transportation services followed. It was great to deal with an experienced team who knows their business. I can now tell the family that the cars will find a good home.”
“I had a wonderful experience. I spoke with Alex having two short professional discussions on two separate occasions. He is NOT the quintessential used car salesman. I’ve experienced nothing like it before. He is the kind of person you need to deal with if you are selling a classic car. He asked for pictures and I sent what I had on my computer. I answered his questions and told him there would be no problem if he needed more. The next morning we made a deal over the phone. I was planning to wholesale the car and the offer he made was generous. An hour later the money we discussed was wire transferred to my account and the car was picked up the very next morning. My head was spinning at how flawlessly and quickly the deal happened. The pick up driver was courteous, knowledgeable and called ahead of time giving me time to get things ready. From Sunday to Tuesday morning SLAM DUNK!”
