Car to be at auction 3/19
1960 Austin-Healey 3000 Mk I BN7
Offered without reserve
RM | Sotheby's - AMELIA ISLAND 2019
Chassis No. H-BN7-L/189
One of less than 2,825 Mark I two-seaters built
Ground-up restoration by Healey Lane Restorations
Includes British Motor Industry Heritage Trust (BMIHT) Certificate
The stunning example shown here has benefitted from an exhaustive, fully documented restoration by Tom Rocke, Healey Lane Restorations of Riverside, California. The exterior was painted with two-stage urethane paint of black over ivory before being polished to a high-gloss finish. Inside, the Amblia-covered seats echo the exterior in black with ivory trim. Black wool carpets and a leather-covered dash, complete with rebuilt original gauges and a new steering wheel ensure that both driver and passenger feel as comfortable as possible. Other upgrades include a new front windscreen, new side curtains, a black English canvas soft top, and black tonneau cover. And the mechanics were not ignored either – the transmission and engine were rebuilt using all-new components and finished with a stainless-steel exhaust system.
Considered by many to be one of the handsomest Austin-Healeys ever built, and a pleasure to drive on the track or the open road, the 3000 Mk I BN7 has always been well regarded in enthusiast circles as an excellent motor car in every right.
