This is a driver's Austin-Healey. The relatively rare (2,825 built) and very desirable 2-seat Mark I BN7, it was produced for only three years following the Big Healey's introduction in 1959. It was nut-and-bolt restored by an Austin-Healey specialist 6 to 7 years ago with marque specific attention to appearance, details and cosmetics. It is finished in Healey Blue with Old English White fender coves and blue leather upholstery and interior trim, matching blue leatherette top and tonneau cover and correct side curtains in a proper pouch. Details include chrome wire wheels and black wall Michelin radials. Not readily apparent are its several subtle modifications and upgrades which turn it into a sharp and enjoyable driver's car. Under the hood it has received a modern alternator and upgraded electrical system with modern blade fuses. The two-SU carburetor engine has an aluminum valve cover and accessory spin-on oil filter. The original 4-speed overdrive transmission has been replaced by a modern 5-speed. Safety is significantly enhanced by a set of diagonal shoulder belts mounted to a chrome crossbar behind the seats. It shows some use since the restoration, and would have been disappointing if it did not, but is still in excellent cosmetic condition. This is an unusual and exceptionally upgraded Austin-Healey 3000 Mk I BN7 two-seater that will give its new owner a rewarding driving and touring experience as well as pride in its presentation.
