They might be able to do a tire and fender count, and tell you if it makes
noises when the starter button is pushed... --But Healeys would be a pretty
specialized item for them to do an inventory on...-And they have specific
things you'd look for, that they'd have no clue about.
--My main concern would be things like what would look like minor corrosion
along a rocker or fender bead, without knowing the costly deeper issues it can
represent. --Or knowing if the seats, carbs, running gear, trim etc are
correct for the model, or a hodge podge of parts from various years and
I suppose they might be better than nothing, but your best option is to see if
a local club member can have a look at it for you.

Subject: SGS Inspectors
eBay offers an inspection service by SGS. Does anyone know anything about
this service? I know they couldn't tell me anything about the suitability
an AH for restoration but I would hope they would find any rust damage or
missing major parts.
