    Ken H,
    " Roger,
    I don't think this Healey NOJ 392 will be towing a boat anymore ! "

    Very expensive tow vehicle for a " Tinny ".
    I agree !!

    What about this for a Tow Car .. the tinny would fall off the trailer.
    Probably the most famous " modified " Australian AH 3000 - Ross Bond- the wheel flares just got bigger and bigger..

    AHS3508 - Engine # 222709 Body # 38

    The car that featured at Torrey Pines in January 1956 - see Ken H thread on ;
    " Early Days of Hot Rodding and Racing in Santa Barbara and beyond. " The car entered by W Pringle and driven by Roy Jackson-Moore and a certain S Moss

    The car was in the first 10 100S built and " Despatched " in February 1955 mostly [ six ] to New York,
    One went to Canada AHS3503 and AHS3510 went to a UK owner.
    The car went to Gough Industries in Los Angeles but the customer is not mentioned
    [ the other of the first ten cars all had purchasers named including Briggs Cunningham with AHS3501 which was unusual in that it was white with stripe ( blue ) and not Ivory over Black like the others ].

    HL 3000 the ex Bill Dunster car - owned since 1973 by BMCBOY

    BMCBOY took HL3000 to the 2021 Brit-Euro show - I wasn't there but John Vevers a BMC Guy was - John is into Austin 3 Litres, the 1800 style car with bigger bonnet [ to accommodate the straight Six - in line not the " C " series but a later development by BMC ] and boot.
    A series of photos John Vevers took - he also took a lot of BMC/BL standard 8 / 10 and Wolseleys 6/99 and 6/110 etc.
    Triple carbs were not normally on a 1959 AH 3000 [ MK 1 ] they were in 1961 -62 only, then back to Duals 62-63 on.
