Hi Guys,

I normally post in the Sprite area but I have someone looking for a fiberglass one-piece front end for a Big Healey - 1962 3000.

Don't know of anyone who makes them. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Brendan

Back in the '70s there were a lot of Big Healey parts in fiberglass(fenders, doors, trunk lids, hoods), I doubt if there are many of those manufacturers are still around, as Healeys started to rise in value and specialists began to make replacement steel and aluminum parts. I lived next door to a guy in the late '60s who had 4 or 5 Healeys that I he picked up at local junkyards for peanuts. He was pulling the engine and tranny and from the doors forward the bodywork, then replacing them with a Chevy 327 and tranny and a one piece fiberglass frontend and selling them. I remember 2 or 3 brand new fiberglass frontends stacked in his garage.

Thanks for the replies.

Yes, Honeybourne was my first thought - full disclosure, I work for Mini Mania/Spridget Mania and they're a vendor of ours - but as far as I know they don't make anything for the big Healeys.

I have some fiberglass fenders for a Big Healey. Quite honestly I can’t remember whether they are front or rear. They have never been installed and still have stickers on them. I will look when I get home this evening
