Car was at auction in '12
Lot number 43

Description Austin-Healey 3000 MkI BN7
Registration YSU 810
Engine size 2,912 cc
Chassis No. HBN7L09487
Dating from 1960, this desirable BN7 two-seater comes in classic Old English White. Purchased by the current keeper (recently deceased) in 1994, the car was used for weekend enjoyment until the owner fell ill in 2002, whereupon she was placed in dry storage until last month.
Since then, she has been the subject of a full recommissioning, service/checkover and lengthy roadtest to ensure that everything is operating correctly. We are informed that a recent ramp inspection showed the chassis to be straight and true with no evidence of any accident repairs. An overdrive model, she is said to drive well with no mechanical issues and comes freshly MOT tested until November 2013.
