SOLD | Austin Healey 3000 MkIIA Ice Blue and Ivory BGS 940A - 1963 | £64000 | Right Hand Drive
BGS 940A was manufactured on 7-8th August 1963 and dispatched on the 30th as a North American Export. Originally specified in Healey Blue with a Blue interior with White contrast piping, the car retains its original specification today as a RHD car and is very presentable throughout.
As a MKIIA or BJ7 model of the Austin Healey 3000, this model is popular in Healey circles for retaining the early, more minimal and ‘jewel-like’ interior (as designed and described by Gerry Coker) over the later wooden ‘De-Luxe’ cockpit of the MKIII roadsters, whilst having the added benefit of wind-up windows and the more effortless pram-style hood otherwise only available on the MKIII.
This example is in good condition throughout with a very presentable and correctly upholstered interior. To drive the car is up together and performs well, notably handling superbly owing to an upgraded suspension and breaking setup including anti-roll bars and performance brakes among the upgrades. The car is supplied de-bumpered at the front and with works rally style ‘bumperettes’ on the rear for a sporting look but should you wish bumpers are easily refitted.
The car was imported from the sunny state of Oregon back to the UK in 1995. Mots in the file put the car back on the road in 1995 at 92387 miles with the current mileage 9000 miles. The car has a significant history file of parts invoices dating back to 1995. The car had a recent £10000 refurbishment at Bell Classics (2016).
This car will be supplied checked, serviced with 12 months MOT, a heritage certificate and historic black plates included in the price.
