Austin Healey 3000 MkIIA BJ7
Built in 1963, this is one of my favourite models of Austin Healey, the MkIIA / BJ7. In my opinion, it has the best features from all of the cars, the early dash & interior, small side lights, pull door handles coupled with the later practicalities of the MKIII BJ8, pull up hood, wind up windows and the more protective wrap around windscreen and quarter light side screens – it is a sought after model, just over 6,000 MkIIA’s were produced verses the near on 18,000 MkIII’s.
This BJ7 is in fair overall condition and has recently had an engine rebuild. It is presentable and drives nicely, just as you would expect. The chassis is solid, and the paintwork is good. The history file includes MOT’s, receipts and invoices. The current owner has had the car nearly 3 decades and has looked after it whilst enjoying the car in the early days to commute to work in the sunshine as well as a weekend past time. The car runs well but does have a noisy 1st gear which can be discussed before sale.
This is a very usable Healey 3000 with the potential to be improved, it could either be left alone and enjoyed or to be worked on as a retirement project. I see there are two paths for this vehicle.
