This year Austin Healeys were very well represented in Monterey and RM Auctions broke the record for the MKIII at auction with a Sandy Beige car. As usual, the factory 100Ms proved to be the most desirable model, but the 1964 Sebring 12 Hours Works car with lightweight aluminum fenders and numerous original competition features fetched $352,000 which is surely the record for the BJ7 at public auction.

John Slauenwhite was one of the predominant Healey collectors here on the peninsula. He came in the shop occasionally and kindly offered up any assistance for them. He was also part of a consortium with John Bumpass and Earl Kagna to supply Healey parts to the regional area.
Upon his passing away 10 years ago, both these exceptional Healeys were being restored by John. Now they are both reunited and ready for the road, at the same time and in the same shop.
