Final improvements and upgrades include the 150hp engine, centershift transmission, power brakes, trailing arm softer rear suspension, walnut fascia dashboard, fold down luggage shelf, armrests, armbars, center console and quieter exhaust system. This exceptional example offered for sale here has just completed a thorough restoration by premier marque specialist Kurt Tanner Restorations. Purchased last year from only its third owner, this California delivered Black Plate BJ-8 is a rare offering in that it is 1 of 553 factory produced Metallic Golden Beige cars as proven by its BMIHT Certificate. Details of the restoration include show quality body and paint work in base coat/clear coat, new chrome, rubber, glass, leather trim, top, top boot, chrome wire wheels and radial tires, cadmium plated hardware, new wiring harness and electrics, fuel system, sports exhaust system, detailed driveline and undercarriage, etc. All work and detailing has been carried out to Austin-Healey Club Coucours Gold standards and the finest materials have been used. With the high cost of restoring cars in today's market, this vehicle represents excellent value and great investment potential. Restored by a marque specialist back to its factory delivered color scheme, this Golden Beige late BJ-8 is a rare and exciting offering not to be missed.
