Interest in Big Healey models has continued to grow since production was halted over 40 years ago, and support for the marque remains strong. This book is an indispensible resource for anyone contemplating the purchase of an example of these iconic cars.
A candid assessment of each model guides you to selecting the right model for your intended use, and arms you with the essential knowledge to select the right example of this increasingly popular marque. Featuring both short and thorough evaluation guides, advice on paperwork, auctions, restorations, and much more, this is an invaluable book for both first-time buyers and seasoned collectors.

Independent Reviews

It’s more than 60 years since the first 100 and 300 Series Austing Healeys rolled off the production line, so potential buyers need to choose carefully – and The Essential Buyer’s Gude is a great book to get before taking the plunge. Author Trummel points out everything you should look for, with handy hints, tips and illustrations.
