1962 Austin Healey 3000 MkII BT7
The Austin Healey 3000 – also called Big Healey – was introduced in 1959 on the New York Motorshow as the successor of the Austin Healey 100-6. This particular example is an Mk2, made from 1961 until 1963. The biggest distinction of the Mk2 is the – very desirable - triple SU Carbs, increasing the power with 8hp, which results in 0.5sec quicker acceleration to 60mph. The car is an BT7 and compared to the BJ7 which is 2 seats roadster, the BT7 is a 2+2 seater, ideal for family touring.
This car underwent a nut and bolt restoration 5 years ago and is still very presentable. The body was completely stripped to the bare metal and all weak points were fixed as it should. The car came originally in Healey Blue but has been repainted in Old English White, an original Austin Healey color for 1962. All the chrome and the wheels are redone and still look amazing. The soft top and tonneau cover are still with the car and in excellent condition.
The interior is also like new. Refinished in its original color Blue, the leather still looks like new without any marks, rips or tears. The rear seats are also in great condition and a new steering wheel is installed.
Mechanically all is redone as well. The engine is completely redone and the three SU-carbs are well adjusted so the car fires up directly and runs smooth. Gearbox, suspension, brakes, all has been redone and is still in excellent condition.
As you can see on the pictures, this Big Healey is one of the finest examples currently for sale and is ready to be enjoyed by its new owner.
