In this Hagerty Buyers Guide Rob Sass points out some things to watch out for when contemplating the purchase of an Austin-Healey. It is important to make sure the body is sound and the doors line up properly. Healey's like other cars from the era have a problem with rusting, so it's something you want to check for before buying one. Finally Rob says to check the wheels and rims. Knock off wheels with spoke wire rims where standard on the Healey. It's important to make sure that everything is tight and the best way to check is a little test drive.
