A few shots from the race shop

54 posts in this topic

I've been spending much of my time this month in this shop wrenching on these cars. Today I was working on the red and white car and cleaning it up as I go. All of the wheelwell areas and engine compartment was as nasty as the driver's side of the compartment still is. Healeys are leaky little buggers. By Wednesday, this car has to be back on its wheels.

It's a '63 122S with the B18 engine and a manual. The son of my Old boss (new boss?) restored it back when I managed their old estate. He was a kid then, now he's the hot shoe of the race team.

New job?

Yes and no.

It's a part time gig. I took care of these cars a few years back, and have been brought back in to get them ready for the season.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder ...

True.

But this is not one of the most loved of Thunderbird generations. It's huge, and with the continental kit the rear overhang is about 6 feet!

It's the closest thing I will get to the Batmobile from the old TV series. Stop messing with my dream ... :neenerneener:

OK, I'll give you that.

I guess it's just that when I think T-bird it's not this one. I like both earlier and later examples much better.

I don't know, maybe it's just the whole feel of early 60's "high society" attached to the car.

And the tiki torches that light as it passes each one - seems a bit tacky.

What a cool shop, filled with cool cars. I've always loved those old Healey's.
