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.
“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!”
“My experience in dealing with Alex Manos has been a refreshing experience. Alex has been up front and transparent. Everything was done in a concise and professional manner.”
“It was Hassel-Free, quick and easy as well. Professional, Polite and Pleased.”
“I found working Alex Manos to be as easy as advertised. I called the number on the website and within moments I was speaking with Alex Manos himself! Alex was the only person I talked to while selling the car, a 1964 Austin Healey 3000 MK II. He asked for some pictures, asked a couple questions then asked what I wanted for the car. He immediately sent me an e-mail with his offer, which I believe was a very fair deal. I agreed. Then some very simple paperwork and the car was picked up at my house 2 days later. The whole experience was professional, polite, and it was gratifying knowing where the car was going.”
