History Bought new by dad in 67, trading in his Austin Healy 3000 for it after driving a friends Duetto. Been in family ever since. Restored and prepped for racing in 1996, raced off n on until I bought the 63 spider. restored again starting in 08 thinking I wuld race in SCCA, but decided against that after seeing car after paint and not wanting to trash it. Slowly reassembled up to 2016, still playing with mods to make more street worthy, although still takes race gas so limited. A car that will never truly be ever done and never go away.
