Auction description;
Lot 115 of 139: 1960 Austin-Healey 3000 MKI
Not Sold
Estimate: £50,000 - £60,000

Registration No:VNR 825
Chassis No:HBT79657

- Finished in Metallic Blue over Cream and trimmed in Blue-piped Cream leather
- Righthand drive 'home market' example
- Freshly restored and matching numbers

VNR 825' is an exceedingly smart looking righthand drive home market MKI 3000 that was manufactured in June 1960. A BT7 model (ie 2 + 2 seater), it had had just one owner, a Leonard Kerman of Irchester, Northants, before being acquired by the vendor in 2015. Apparently stored for the previous 44 years it was not surprisingly in need of attention, and therefore treated to a full body-off restoration in 2016, since when it is understood to have travelled just 9,000 miles, so is still barely run in. Finished in a strident tone of Metallic Blue over Cream and trimmed in Blue-piped Cream leather, it is now reckoned by the vendor to have 'excellent' bodywork, paintwork, upholstery, six-cylinder engine, and four-speed manual transmission complete with overdrive. He is now making this matching numbers 'Big Healey' available complete with alloy rocker cover and green log book. A factory specification hard top is also included in the sale, which is to be collected from the vendor at a later date.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
