Car to be at auction 6/16
1963 AUSTIN-HEALEY 3000 BJ7 Mk.11A CONVERTIBLE
Chassis No: HBJ7L24836
Engine No: 29FRUH5708
For Sale by Auction June 19th 2016.
Auction Estimate: £42,000 - £57,000
Mossgreen Auctions is pleased to offer this twin-carburettor Austin Healey 3000 Mk. IIA 2+2 convertible. This car was delivered new to California in 1963 and imported to Western Australia in 1997 and acquired by the current owner in 2006. It has undergone a detailed four-year long "back to bare metal" restoration, including: renewing the BJ8 pattern interior trim (indicating the car was one of the last BJ7s produced) with BJ7 trim by Tim Ward of Sports and Specialist Trimming; repair, rebuild or replace parts of the engine; differential and gearbox/overdrive reconditioned by Simon Gardiner from Power Play P/L; body work painted in Colorado Red attended to by the Healey Factory of Melbourne.
Modern modifications are: the interior light system; wider Dayton chrome wire wheels with radial ply tyres; a wood rim steering wheel; the right hand drive conversion; a larger 7 core radiator and polarity change to negative earth.
This car won the 2014 Austin-Healey Owners Club Road and Show Class 3000 Convertible BJ7-BJ8. It has travelled only 600kms since the project was completed in 2010 and is accompanied by comprehensive receipts and a photo album showing the exhaustive and meticulous restoration it has undergone. It is therefore a rare opportunity to purchase a vehicle of concours quality with a mere 600kms on the clock.
