Representing the Big Healey's final and most popular incarnation, this left-hand drive BJ8 Phase II model was competed in January 1965 and delivered new to North America where it remained in dry climates. In the early 2000s the car was treated to a complete 'last nut and bolt' restoration. All mechanicals were rebuilt, including the engine, suspension, brakes together with cooling, fuel and electrical systems, with various upgrades incorporated. The body and chassis were stripped back to bare metal, repaired wherever necessary and refinished to a standard equal to, if not better than, that achieved at the factory. Using correct materials, great attention to detail was paid during the restoration of the interior and convertible top, while all the chromed trim, glass and rubber parts were replaced. Following completion the Healey was well maintained and used only sparingly before being purchased by the current owner in the USA in 2008.

Handsomely finished in black with matching hood and Bordeaux Red leather interior, this fully restored car sits on 60-spoke chromed wire wheels shod with period-correct Michelin tyres and is described as in generally excellent condition, the chassis benefiting from Waxoyling by JD Classics. Accompanying documentation consists of a BMIHT certificate, sundry restoration invoices, current MoT/tax and UK V5C registration document.
