NEW! Photos with top up included… here’s another spectacular vehicle for sale! This is a 1960 Austin Healey 3000 Mark I BT7 (VIN HBT7L8403), an exceptional driver that you can also show. It’s an impressive ride inside and out!
I’ll forever be enamored by any nice British Racing Green Big Healey with chrome wire wheels- they are sharp vehicles with voluptuous curves. The BT7 is the 2-plus-2 Variant of the 3000 Mark I, as is denoted by the presence of two small seats behind the driver’s seat. They were the more common flavor of Mark I 3000s, as opposed to the 2-seat BN7s, which were built in smaller numbers.
The underside of this car was beautifully restored about 25 years ago in California, and I believe this to be a California car for the entirety of its life until it came to Connecticut in 2010. The owner who purchased it in 2010 has maintained the car meticulously, and there is a mountain of receipts that come with the car documenting all of its maintenance and improvements. Recently, in fact, the last owner removed the head and had it completely reconditioned to run on unleaded gas with hardened valve seats. We have a photo of the head looking brand new from the machinist before installation, so there isn’t much mileage on the top end of this car.
This car also has a stainless steel exhaust system, which produces a perfect exhaust note. If you’re unfamiliar, Big Healey six-cylinder engines always sound fantastic, and the early 3000s in particular had a straighter system than the later cars, with a single resonator that I think provides the best sound of the entire Healey range.
Front disc brakes are present as with all BT7s. The top, top bow and tonneau are all in nice shape. The side curtains are not perfect but usable in a pinch. The Interior overall is in excellent condition.
Take a look at the walk-around and driving video we made below and check out this beautiful car!
You can show this car or drive it anywhere with confidence- it’s a really nice and solid example with great body lines. There are a few minor imperfections in the paint but the car still shows extremely well. Call or email if you’re interested!
