Austin Healey Rally Car (BJ8)

Border Reivers are delighted to offer this beast of a Healey, it was purchased by a friend & fellow Monte Carlo rally partner however due to Brexit his plans changed & the car has been in dry storage since in the UK while he lives abroad old age & ill health have finally caught up with him & he has asked me to sell the Healey.

Built at enormous cost to do a job & that Job was to compete & more importantly finish the Singapore to Vietnam, Road to Saigon Rally. (JOB DONE)
