Help this 1957 Healey - A 100-6 In Need of Serious Resto

Tired of seeing meticulously restored cars featured on blogs all over the web? Well, have we got a project for you! Our search for an Austin Healey 100 for sale has led us to this rusty, yet rather complete 100-6.  Even in this somewhat sad state, this 100 looks like a decent candidate for a resto. Heck, there's even a box of parts in the passenger seat. Who knows what treasures that could be lurking in there.   Considering that this model in perfect condition currently fetches around $85,000, a little investment may yield a good return on this one if you can do the restoration yourself or at least source the body work to a trusted expert.  Besides, every car deserves a second chance right? Just look at those knock-offs and the iconic hood scoop. For us, that is enough motivation to see beyond the dirt and grime. If you want to see what these excellent British roadsters look like in their prime, check out our post from earlier this week.
