This Austin Healey 3000 MK 2 BJ7 with overdrive has a Heritage certificate and matching numbers, and is in a well-driving condition!
It came from the USA to the Netherlands in 1988, and the last owner owned the car ever since!
It still has the original colour scheme: Old English White and black leather interior with white piping. In the past, this Healey was extensively restored with an eye for detail, both the body as well as the technical parts.
During the restoration a lot was replaced or renewed, such as: the electrical wiring harness, new wire rims, new fuel tank, new upholstery, stainless steel exhaust, etcetera.
Recently, the engine has been largely overhauled and fitted with new pistons, an improved type of cam followers, new spark plug cables, ignition coil, cooling fan with 5 blades.
The gearbox, overdrive and steering box were overhauled in 2015/2016, this was done by Austin-Healey specialist Von Münching, invoices thereof are available. The chassis is rock solid, furthermore, the car is honest and has the right fittings. The original soft top, which was delivered in 1962, is still mounted on the car and is in a nice, used condition. A few repaired holes, see photos.
Paintwork overall shows some small barely visible blisters, the vehicle is enjoyable in this condition for many years to come, but should be repainted if you want perfect paintwork. We therefore recommend viewing the car prior to placing a bid in order to avoid disappointment.
Technically, this Healey is in a well-maintained condition and it is a pleasure to drive!
Heritage certificate, overhaul invoices, new parts, repairs, Dutch Periodic Vehicle Inspection reports and even the 1988 down payment document are present!
The Healey just had a new Dutch Periodic Vehicle Inspection with an expiry date of 02/10/2021!
You are more than welcome to view this car in our showroom and to take it for a test drive prior to placing a bid.
This vehicle can be viewed and picked up in Oldemarkt, the Netherlands.
