An Austin Healey 3000 BT7 with shades of the 60's rally versions.

THE CAR

Here we have a 1962 Austin Healey 3000 Tri- Carb which has been lovingly rebuilt to resemble the Pat Moss rally car. It has passed its UK MOT and will shortly have the full V5 registration document. It is a left hand drive car that has come to UK from Canada, specially sourced and selected there by our team in North America. The car  was the subject of a major refurbishment in 2002/03, and there are many invoices and photographs to back this up. There is an invoice for the labour element at CAD  8700, and even back then, 15 years ago, an independent appraisal valued the car at CAD 35,000.

ENGINE AND GEARBOX

The 3 litre, 6 cylinder engine was refurbished in 2014, with electronic ignition upgrades and an alternator fitted in place of the dynamo. The radiator was new in 2015 and is a 4 core. The engine runs sweetly and give a sensational sound through the side-exit dual pipe Stebro exhaust. This is the sought after Tri-Carb model which gives the car very brisk performance. The transmission shifts well through the gears and the overdrive on 3rd and 4th gear functions exactly as it should. The car handles and brakes as it should.

THE INTERIOR

The interior of this BT7 is in excellent condition, with the seats retrimmed in red with black piping. The carpets are the same colour. and there are very few signs of wear or ageing.

THE EXTERIOR

The undercarriage is in excellent condition, with no rust or damage. The body has been  professionally repainted in a 1997 Nissan Scarlet, and the car is equipped with a white hard top. The Healey is fitted with a set of deep dish chrome wire wheels in excellent condition. The front wings have been fitted with louvres as per the rally cars, and two period chrome driving lights mount onto the front bumper.

THE HISTORY

This is an Austin Healey 3000 Mk2 BT7 with the triple carb setup. It underwent a major restoration in 2002/2003 which is documented with invoices and photographs. It is an LHD car from Canada, so we are making it available throughout Europe as well as the UK. It is a well presented car in very good condition throughout.

CONCLUSION

Roman Garages highly recommend this Healey. It has been very tastefully restored and remains in excellent condition. This Tri-Carb passed the UK MOT first time with no advisories, and is fully UK registered.
