Lot #1358 - After a total production of nearly 14,000 Mark I 3000's, the Mark II was introduced in May, 1961. This was the most elegant of the Healeys. The days of the fold-down windshields were completely gone. The huge 4-cylinder engines and even the drafty side curtains were now also in the past. The BJ7 should have been called the Austin-Healey 3000 Mark III, but it wasn't. The new model was simply called the 3000 sports convertible and still carried the Mark II identification. The car was capable of doing 120mph. Not only could the car go fast, but it had thick carpets and wind-up windows. The best part of the BJ7 and BJ8 series was that the engine reverted back to two carburetors. This 1963 Austin Healey Mark II 3000 BJ7 was restored to a high driver level by Classic Showcase. This vehicle has a Heritage Certificate and comes with an original driver's handbook. During the restoration process the engine was rebuilt, all mechanical components were serviced, rebuilt or replaced, including the brake system, fuel system and electrical system. The overdrive was serviced, the gas tank was epoxy sealed, new sending unit, new clutch slave and converted to negative ground. The suspension was restored and new rear springs. The body was stripped, fitted as needed, primed, sealed, painted and base coat/clear coat. New rubber seals, grommets and hardware were installed. Replaced trim, new wire loom and installed a new convertible top and boot, carpets and panels. The car also comes with a tonneau cover and has a Mota Lita steering wheel. The instruments were serviced and a new stainless steel exhaust system was installed as well as new wire wheels and new tires. The car has a luggage rack and halogen sealed beam headlights.
