SOLD | Austin Healey 3000 MKIIA | Original Right Hand Drive & Original Healey Blue - 1963 | £TBA | RHD

Just in, early viewing much reccommended. More details and photographs available soon, call for more information.

Original UK home market RHD car built between 12-17th December 1962, this 3000 MKIIA BJ7 car was originally delivered to ‘Car Mart Sales Limited’ of London and retains its original Essex registration ‘787 COO’.

This is a matching numbers status example including original engine and body. Very pleasingly the car is finished in it’s original colour of Healey Blue with Blue interior trim and hood – the most popular Healey colour combination by far.  As a MKIIA or BJ7 car this model was the first to receive the very desirable wind-up windows (over sidescreens) and easy-up ‘pram style hood’ whilst retaining the early type dashboard.

The car has just received a full re-trim with new carpet, the panels and seating re-trimmed in Blue leather and the hood and hoodbag re-trimmed in the correct Blue Everflex vinyl.

Believed to have been restored in 2000, the bodywork on this car remains very solid with the paint still displaying good, deep shine. The bumpers are new with the remaining chrome very good. Additional spotlights (rare Lucas units) have been fitted at the front onto a badge bar with period items.

The car features a upgraded road engine and in 2016 was measured at 190BHP over the standard cars 132. The car still holds good oil pressure and drives very pleasingly handling well. The overdrive operates smoothly and the gearbox changes gear cleanly. Other mechanical upgrades include wider 205 section tyres over the typical 185 type, rear disc brake conversion and an electric fan.

This vehicle is supplied with MOT, Heritage Certificate of Authenticity as well as a thick history file of invoices, servicing and repairs.
