6699 WD - 'works-modified' MkII

This car, formerly owned by ex-racer Tony Griffiths, was originally registered at the Warwick Registration office in the name of Mr D Healey, The Cape, Warwick. Converted by Donald Healey's company to wire wheels and disc brakes, it has a laminated screen and original DHMC hardtop. Its bodyshell has been fully restored and re-painted ready for re-assembly, and all parts come with it except for engine and gearbox. All new trim is included, plus a new wiring loom converted to take an alternator. It has the original brake discs and calipers, master cylinder conversion, and rear brakes plus rebuilt front suspension.

The shell has had a patches seam welded into each sill close to the jacking point and a new wheel arch section on the nearside. Both rear arches have had the inner lip turned up to give additional tyre clearance.

Tony has since sold the complete car to Ian Turner who is busy assembling it into a very nice works-modified Sebring Mark II.
