1966 Austin-Healey 3000

18

1966 Austin Healey 3000 mk3. Purchased used by my father in January 1967. All original except for the paint and carpet. I inherited it when my dad passed away, and am slowly bringing it back to life.( Has basically been in storage since 1977) The first car I ever drove, and the car I was brought home from the hospital in.
