Description
Lot #696 - Presented here is Austin Healey BJ-8, # 43007. It is documented to be the 19th car from the end of big Healey production and, when dispatched to the United States from the factory on January 16, 1968, was the last big Healey ever sent to the United States by the factory, thereby marking the end of an important chapter in automotive history. The car was originallly delivered in Charleston and ended up in California shortly thereafter. Rudolph Kainz, a Bavarian resident, purchased the car from the original owner while vacationing in California in the early 1980's, and brought it home to Germany. Mr Kanz drove the car sparingly during his ownership and thought of it as his "James Bond car." Upon Kainz' passing in 2001, the car was inherited by his daughter in Kansas. During the Kansas registration process, the car was assigned a replacement VIN for registration purposes. However, the original VIN plates and shock tower identification remain on the car. The car is mostly as delivered from the factory, except for an original color repaint at some point in the past. It comes with British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate documentation and tonneau and boot covers. The car was featured in a recent issue of Sports Car Market magazine as "The Final Healey."
