Description

Lot #1385 - Austin-Healey's production of sports cars started in 1953 with the introduction of the successful 100-4 model. In 1956, the 6-cylinder 100-6 model was produced which was developed into the vastly improved and famous 3000. This model featured front disc brakes, greater torque and horsepower and was offered in 2 and 4-seat roadster body styles. 1963 models benefited from even more improvements and upgrades with the introduction of the BJ7 2+2 sports convertible. This model was designated as a 3000 MK IIA and now provided roll-up windows to replace the old side screens and an easy-stowing, proper, snug-fitting softtop. This 1963 BJ7 sports convertible offered here was as an excellent, straight, solid, black-and-yellow license plate California car and went through an extensive and thorough restoration by premier marque specialist, Kurt Tanner Restorations. Finished in the beautiful and traditional color scheme of Olde English White with red leather trim, this lovely big Healey features a 4-speed overdrive gear box, chrome/stainless wire wheels, adjustable steering wheel and heater. Details of the restoration include new show quality Sikkens two stage body and paint, completely new interior, top, top boot, new chrome and rubber kit, new brakes, fuel system, re-plated hardware, detailed driveline and undercarriage, new wiring harness and electrics, new stainless wire wheels, tires and knock-offs. A beautifully presented example of the Austin-Healey marque with a top quality restoration.
