This is a 1967 Austin Healy GT Coupe with a custom fiberglass Fiberfab Jamaican body. Fiberfab, the company that created this coupe body has a rather interesting history and is worthy of an article in its own right. The company started as Sports Car Engineering (SCE) in 1957, it was founded by amateur racer Warren "Bud" Goodwin who was to manufacture fiberglass Mistral bodies under license and sell them as the SCE Spyder. The company then became Fiberfab Co. in 1964 and began building performance parts and fiberglass body panels for Austin-Healy, Mustangs, Corvettes, and Jaguars. Goodwin loved the look of the fiberglass bodies built by fellow American company Devin, but he wanted to make them easier for homebuilders to complete.
This particular Jamaican is actually one of only a few factory built examples and not a home build. A complete frame off restoration of the vehicle was recently completed.
This Healey features a big 3000cc 6 cylinder engine, 4 speed manual transmission with overdrive, Front disc brakes, 12 volt negative battery, Finned aluminum oil pan, Dual Vitaloni mirrors, Dual stainless steel exhaust with Monza dual tips and rolls on new custom spec 60 spoke wire wheels and new Vredestein radial tires. Within the cockpit you will find a period correct wood rimmed steering wheel as well as an array of Smith's gauges to monitor vehicle functions.
This Austin Healy GT Coupe Jamaican is extremely rare and sure to be a welcomed addition to both concours and rally-tour events. It is complete with service, ownership and restoration histories.
