Two years of hard work, using his technical skills, the drive to continue, always striving for perfection, ordering parts from the right suppliers, help from professional Healey specialists, and as a basis a good body from America: see here the result of all efforts made by the latest owner. A very real and fully matching numbers and colors Austin Healey 3000 Mk1 built in 1960 in the popular BN7 (two-seater) version. A Heritage Certificate is of course present.
The beautiful English sports car has successfully completed the first hundreds of test kilometers in recent months, and we are now looking for a new owner who wants to enjoy this Healey painted in typical sixties colors. Today, most of the cars are dull gray or black. No, than in the sixties. How nice is it that people then had a completely different view on colors and a car could really stand out. As a Healey driver you get admiring looks anyway, but even more in these colors. The cheerful summer colors look great on the car, we must say.
The complete restoration has of course been well documented on photos and accompanying invoices, and proves that nothing was left to chance. The result is clearly visable, because the car looks like new and drives really well. The wonderfully smooth 3-liter engine connected to a 4-speed gearbox with overdrive gives a lot of driving pleasure. And the sound… that really sounds like music to the ears of the enthusiast.
We are very enthusiastic about this “Big Healey”, and a phone call to us will do to get the car ready to show it to you.
