1966 Replica/Kit Makes Saxon Austin HealyThis Austin Healy by Saxon is very true to actual design standards of the Healy. Even though it's VW powered, the back is very well proportioned. It has Porsche style wheels and hubcaps, which fit with the VW mill. The trim is in very good shape, although there are some dings in the bumpers, as shown in the pictures. The body has a few stress crack areas, but none bad enough that it warranted fixing. I have a set of top bows, although I don't believe they have ever been installed.
Now to the good part..... This puppy drives great. The steering is tight, and the brakes work great. The engine was low mileage when installed in 1982, and has been driven just seven thousand plus miles since. It has a Borla style exhaust system that sounds great. It has a low, throaty sound, that is quite pleasing. The gauges all work properly, although I haven't messed with the radio. There are roll-up windows, which I have never raised, so I will, and post the picture. The tires are probably the original units, and still have lots of tread, BUT, I certainly wouldn't trust them at speed. My wife, who owns this puppy, only drives it locally, and not on the freeway. The wipers and all lights work fine..... This car is a blast to drive through the countryside !!!
