Paint
• Paint finish was very expertly performed, very smooth, very shiny
• Color Matches well all around
• Do not see any imperfections in the paint application itself, no obvious scratches
• Very professionally completed and polished so we don’t see orange peal along edges
• Couple of nicks in front from normal road wear but very minimum showing, owner must have been careful to not follow others to close. Also a nick by left door and a brush touch up by RR snap (see pics)

Body
• The body is impressively correct and straight, actually mostly laser straight (see all pics)
• Fits and gaps around hood, trunk, doors, and other painted body panels all seem even and appropriately aligned (see pics)(including those of individual panels)
• Note- we have inspected body closely over a couple of days in overcast, bright sun, and LED lighting.

Magnetic paint gauge
• We took a couple random approx. readings on each steel painted panel of car. The hood and trunk surrounding panels are typically of a non steel material so we could not obtain readings
• Readings were typical of what we often see on expertly performed, very straight, show paint quality restorations with material readings of 15 mils and above
• Upper side and top panels seemed to have very similar magnetic pull with lower rockers and fenders reading slightly lighter pull

Bright Work
• All bright work appears to be solid and properly mounted to body without obvious issues.
• When inspected in bright sunlight or in the shade, it appears like that of a couple yr old car not really showing age. This would include the wire wheels as well. We do not see any obvious scratching. Lower grill shows a bit more pitting (see pics)
• When shining a bright LED flashlight into the bright work, you will detect a slight amount of age beginning to show (see pics up close and grill)
• The RED coloring on emblems is very fresh and bright looking

Glass
• Door glass, vent glass, and windshield all have “Triplex” logo
• Glass seems very clear without any discoloring, delamination, bulls eyes, cracks, or any wiper marks, but a few very light fine scratches on windshield and typical vertical drivers door glass from cranking up and down (hardly noticeable)(see pics)
• Owner indicated not remembering of any glass being replaced in the approx. 52 years of ownership
• Windshield has a few pin head sized nicks from typical driving

Top
• Outside material has good deep black coloring and we don’t notice any fading with differences in color(see pics)
• Top seems very soft and supple from minimum exposure
• Stitching all in good condition without any areas that appear deteriorated
• Rear window appears fine with slight scratching and age showing
• Grey framework appears with good color and slight normal wear from hinge movement (manual folding top)
• Owner leaves top down mostly so we put it up and had it sit in the sun a bit to stretch out.

Interior
• With the bright lighting we had lots of reflection and a blueish cast on the seating pictures and so the pictures with shading shows the true coloring of seat materials and other interior details
• Interior fabrics, materials, seat coverings, door panels, are all in nice condition and don’t show a lot of exposure to the outside (see pics)
• Addition front and rear speakers were installed for improved sound with upgraded CD player
• Rear storage fold down will not operate with added rear speakers in place
• Front seat belts are installed (see pics)
• Steering wheel covering makes for comfortable usage and has minimum wear
• No headliner or sun visors FYI / Has Austin Healey floor mats for a finished look
• There are a few nicks in the backs of the drivers and passenger seat (see pics)

Engine Bay
• Generally appears to be mostly as designed new with periodic detailing and maintenance items as needed
• Engine Rebuilt Professionally- See documents (somewhere after 84k per earlier docs)
• Cowl Tags in place- See pics
• Same Engine purchased with in 1970 (no Engine tag)

Trunk
• Finished with proper shaped flooring and back panels for a nice appearance (see pics)
• Contains battery box cover along with original style cut off switch
• Owner drove locally and preferred the extra room afforded without carrying a spare tire and tools(no longer have possession of)

Tires and Wheels
• Tires are Michelin X Red Stripe Tube Type Radials / Made in France
• 185 X 15 size of all 4 tires
• DOT (see pics)
• Tires don’t appear to have cracking or damage to outside walls (see pics)
• LR tire has a very light scuff on outside
• Tread Depth approx 6/32 on all 4 (on car)
• Wheels are very reflective and we don’t see any noticeable Corrosion / spinners as typical show slightly more wear / wheels themselves appear like that of a couple year old vehicle
• Between spokes could be even further detailed for competitive showing

Chassis
• Please see pictures as the best way to properly understand condition
• We have driveway pics and rack shots of underside (see pics on website)
• Owner has typically only driven car on nice dry days with little exception
• Frame itself seems solid without rust perforation
• The bottom side has not been covered with any aftermarket rust proofing substance and so you can inspect it in it’s natural state mostly
• Floors, rockers, and supports have been professionally restored with metal and panels with a material covering (see bills). We do not see any current rust perforation (see pics & documents)

• Chad & owner went for about a 15 mile ride. Chad drove back about the last 4 miles
• Driving is very smooth, fairly quiet and car feels solid.
• Braking is smooth and stops straight without notice of pulling or pulsation
• Steering tracks straight on a level road (not pulling) and operates smoothly on a full left to right turning
• Clutch operates smoothly and seems to engage at correct pedal position with no chatter

• With the 6 cylinder torque and smooth operating clutch, it makes starting off from a stop and driving very user friendly

Conditions of Sale:
Auto Connection is a 3rd party agent, assisting both buyers AND sellers. The vehicles they sell are from private owners and collectors, and they provide advertising, marketing, and consulting services for individuals and companies.
The Auto Connection representative has physically viewed the item being sold. The information comes from the seller and other research sources. Auto Connection is not responsible for any misrepresentation by the seller and/or errors in research results, including history statements of vehicle history, repairs, etc.

This vehicle is being sold AS IS and without a warranty, unless otherwise stated.
Information about serial numbers, engine numbers, and any other codes does not guarantee a vehicle’s authenticity. These codes and numbers are not guaranteed to be the same as the information on the vehicle ID or vin, trim tag, engine block, cylinder heads, transmission, differential, or other components within this vehicle. Auto Connection does not guarantee documentation, authenticity, repairs, mechanical work, titles, odometer discrepancies, matching numbers, stamped engines, casting numbers, or any other codes, tags, or numbers. The potential for reproduction paper documentation exists, as well as restamped engines and reproduced trim/data tags.

Auto Connection has described this vehicle to the best of their knowledge, but does not guarantee the accuracy of the description. Prospective buyers are encouraged to conduct their own due diligence, including a physical inspection of the vehicle in person, or through a qualified third party inspector/appraiser.

The vehicle will remain for sale until a buyer has placed a deposit on it. This deposit is nonrefundable with the exception of the vehicle being severely misrepresented by Auto Connection or the seller, or stipulated in the Bill of Sale.

It is possible that this vehicle will be sold at a higher price than the highest bid (before or after the auction ends), if the reserve is not met. After the sale (if reserve is met or not), Auto Connection must receive at least a 10% deposit (wire transfer or official bank or cashier’s check) within 3 days of the end of the auction (or the Bill of Sale is signed). The high bidder/buyer has 10 days from this time to send the balance in full or final payment and inspect the vehicle (or have a 3rd party professional inspection).

For the most part, the vehicle for sale is not “perfect”. It is unreasonable to assume that every single flaw in the paint, body, engine, etc. or any minor mechanical items (such as a light not working) be considered a reason to refuse the vehicle. Major rust/rot, undisclosed problems with the frame, etc. might constitute a legitimate reason for the buyer to refuse to follow through with the sale. In that situation, the seller and buyer will try to reach an agreeable solution.

The buyer acknowledges that he has had the opportunity to inspect the vehicle to verify it is as listed and represented. He accepts the vehicle with all advertised equipment, options and accessories in “AS IS” condition with any faults or defects. The buyer will bear all future costs of repairs or correcting any defects that exist or may occur in the future.
