Nash Healey chassis number 3143, body, 13643, engine NHA1500
My intention for this car is to begin to try and collect
all of the missing parts and return the car to a point where
restoration to original specification is viable. The obvious parts
missing are in the following list which I'm sure I will be adding to
and hopefully reducing over time.
rear corner screen glass
Exterior front and rear glass chrome / stainless trim
Interior front and rear glass alloy trim
interior door and window handles
right side 1/4 vent window frame
Both lower alloy side trims from sills
Front parking lights
Rear parking lights
number plate light
Fuel filler flap
As first seen on 1st June 2014
Picking up the car on 7th June 2014
Back at work and ready for some serious underbody cleaning before it comes home to my workshop
I do have the rear bumper
cutouts on the inside of the
grill bars, I have no idea why this was done! Suggestions? note the
last 2 digits ( 43 ) of the chassis number still visible
I did at least get a jack! and a pair of air cleaners.
After 7 hours work with degreaser and a steam cleaner most of the accumulated grease, oil and flaking body deadener is removed
Badly fitting front bumper
Rust in the bottom of the left chassis rail, right side appears to be fine.
Rust in the inner sills, I expect the outer sills will also need replacement.
I decided I could not leave the car
in such a sad looking state, so the roof, boot lid and the other panel
damage has been pushed back out into basic shape, the rusty bare metal
areas rust treated and sealed off with a thin layer of white paint to
stop and further corrosion.
The car at least now looks in better shape
The floor area cleaned, which will now also get some rust protection
The rusted areas behind the seat, overall nothing to bad has been found. Once again the area will be treated to halt the rust
