Description

Lot #983 - Austin-Healey started sports car production in 1953 with the successful 100-4 model. This model was developed into a 6 cylinder model known as the 100-6 which was then improved into the famous 3000, introduced in 1959. With more horsepower, greater torque and front disc brakes as standard, the 3000 MK I was offered in both 4-seater and the rare 2-seater body styles. This exceptional 1960 Austin-Healey 3000 MK I BN-7 2-seater roadster offered here was purchased last year as a solid, straight, long time California car. Finished in the spectacular period color scheme of Opalescent Silver Gray with red leather trim and black top, this rare and desirable 2-seater has just completed an extensive cosmetic and mechanical restoration by Kurt Tanner Restorations to Austin-Healey Club Gold level concours standards. Details of the restoration include new bare metal, show quality body and paint work, new chrome, rubber, interior with leather seats, top and side screens with bag, windshield, five new 60-spoke chrome wire wheels with radial tires, new wiring harness and electrics, exhaust system, totally rebuilt engine with ancillaries and rebuilt transmission.. This vehicle has been restored with absolute authenticity in mind and the finest materials have been used. This attractive Big Healey roadster is supplied with its BMIHT certificate attesting to its matching numbers, and a photo album documenting its extensive and professional restoration. With a production run of only 2,825 units in 3 years, both enthusiasts and collectors prize the BN-7 for its performance, rarity and beautiful British "barchetta" styling reminiscent of the AC Ace and Cobra. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a Big Healey with one of the prettiest body styles, restored by a marque specialist to a very high standard.
