Austin-Healey 1953-68

Healey numbers remain strong and values across the range continue to climb.

Looking back just five years it is easy to see growth of 30 per cent and more in ‘big’ Healey values and similar appreciation for the earliest Sprites.

Mark 3 versions of the 3000 have a strong international collector following and while some cars have been offered in Australia at more than $120,000 our market continues to lag behind Europe.

Also up significantly are excellent examples of the 1950s-build 100/4 and 100/6. Sprites from the 1960s remain relatively affordable, however finding an outstanding car continues to be a challenge.

Cheaper examples will often need costly body-work and then become over-capitalised.
