My my, I thought I would be considered a heretic when I built in a homemade satnav and took the rubber bumpers off my '76.....

Gorgeous paint job. I am totally envious of the late-model lower valance vents. I think the 1500 looks fantastic without the rubber bumpers, just IMO.

Thought I would share a few pics of my ‘69. Just about time to put it to bed for the winter and start a few projects on it ( I have developed a few oil leaks, one worryingly from the head gasket....)

A year old but the perfect place to plant this video.

Have a great Christmas

All the best Johnny

As it's Christmas I guess I'm not the only one looking forward to a Spring drive.

Cheers Johnny

So, Brian, yours is a '77? Did you seal up the lower valance vents, or replace it with an earlier version?

Also, where did you source the grill?

a '77 indeed winking smiley

I've shaved all fender markers/badges/stock mirrors/various seams with obvious chrome bumper conversion and sourced the Healey grille cheap on ebay years ago for the "Healey Look"

I'm running blocks out back and the VB chrome bumper lowering front springs along with my own custom spacers so it no longer appears to be on stilts. When I purchased the front valance was swiss cheese under the rubber bumper so I made that from scratch with 20g steel.

Really beautiful. Nice work.

I'm running Moss's lowered, stiffened front springs (no longer listed, evidently) but not spacers on top of that, as I live out in the country and the 'neighbor' won't agree to grade the easement, so my ability to put her way down in the weeds like yours is inhibited. I do not currently have blocks at the rear but have considered that. When the wife and I are sitting in her, she sits almost perfectly level.

A beauty!!

I totally understand the downfalls and sometimes impossibilities of going lower......But......growing up watching and loving the look of slammed Midgets and Healeys at the track (Lime Rock) practical sacrifices had to be made.

Front fenders are quite modified/trimmed and pulled, who knew slamming a rubber bumper isn't a "bolt-on" procedure? winking smiley I could have run smaller tires but thats not the look I wanted. Oh yeah, also had to remake another exhaust system.

Like the ol' MiniTruckin' saying goes.......If sparks don't fly your too high
