We are offering this exemplary numbers matching 1960 Austin Healey 3000 (BT7) four seater for sale. Complete with BMIHT certificate documenting the legitimacy of this “no stories” car. A 41 year fully documented history, including extensive photo library and every receipt, with the current owner culminated with a labor of love nut & bolt restoration by a professional engineer that worked his way through school as a metalworker-the result is stunning!
Every component and panel received detailed attention with several areas upgraded for comfort and function. Finished in the highly engaging style of the Healey Works Rally Team with functional wing vents, devoid of front bumper and factory hardtop in place. Additional cockpit ventilation has been added, automotive velour interior makes the seating much more comfortable and accommodating on long rides, tours and trips.
Mechanically superb with overdrive, balanced engine and refurbished driveline components this Healey offers great driveability, front disc brakes offer straight stopping power while the new steering and suspension components offer a confident feel and ride. A new wiring harness makes for completely serviceable gauges and lights. New Dunlop 72 spoke wire wheels shod with Vredstein Classic radials connect you to the road and offer a wonderful driving experience.
Coachwork that is as straight as an arrow, correct gaps, fully functioning latches and a fabulous finish in red with contrasting charcoal pearl metallic coves and top complimented by a dark gray interior make for a visually fetching combination. A built-in center high mounted stop lamp augments the car as does the period correct chrome luggage rack. Jack, tool kit, spare wheel & tire, side curtains in custom hand-made protective bags complete the accessories list.
The only mileage accrued since the restoration was completed was to assure proper function of all components. This is truly a “turn-key” opportunity to get into a luscious fully functional Big Healey, ready for show or go.
