A nice BT7 Austin Healey 3000 Mk1 at a very competitive price.

THE CAR

Here is another 1960 Austin Healey 3000 selected by our North American colleagues. It is a BT7, Mark 1 with twin carbs. Finished in gleaming black, this Healey passed the MOT with no advisories and has UK V5 and registration plates. A lot of money has clearly been spent on this car.

ENGINE AND GEARBOX

The 3000cc straight-six engine is smooth and pulls strongly through the rev range. The gearbox is a 4-speed manual with overdrive and selects all the gears cleanly and precisely. This combination of engine and gearbox provides the Healey with more than adequate performance. With handling and roadholding to suit, the Big Healey is a true sports car.

THE INTERIOR

The upholstery is in very good condition, having been retrimmed in black with red piping. The carpets are red and the car has a black soft top, as pictured in the gallery. A very nice wooden rim steering wheel has been fitted to the car as a finishing touch.

THE EXTERIOR

The black paintwork has a lovely deep shine and is in very good condition all round. Panel fit is good and the car is straight and true. The Healey has silver finish spoked wheels with good tyres all round. Chromework is excellent.

THE HISTORY

This Healey 3000 is a Canadian import, and it is evident from the condition of the vehicle that a lot of money has been spent in bringing the car to its present condition. This 3000 comes with a Heritage Certificate showing the car was first supplied in June 1960 to a dealer in Philadelphia USA. Details of equipment fitted to the car included wire wheels, overdrive, adjustable steering column, heater, laminated windscreen and Road Speed tyres.

CONCLUSION

Here is a UK registered, LHD Healey that drives well and is in very nice condition. It has been the subject of work over the years, but has been well cared for. It is priced very competitively, and we can provide back up servicing and after care. The car has a 3 month engine and gearbox warranty, and finance is available.
