This 1962 Austin-Healey 3000 BT7 Mk II is a four-seat roadster that is powered by a 2.9-liter inline-six linked to a Toyota five-speed manual transmission. The car was acquired in 2012 by the seller, and work has since involved a repaint, a reupholstered interior, and the installation of Bilstein shocks. It is finished in metallic blue over blue vinyl upholstery, and additional equipment includes a blue SunFast soft top and tonneau cover along with chrome-finished 15″ wire wheels, front disc brakes, a Wizard Cooling aluminum radiator, a Pertronix Flame Thrower distributor, and a Tourist Trophy stainless steel exhaust system. This 3000 BT7 is offered on dealer consignment with service records, side curtains, and a clean California title.
The car is finished in metallic light blue and was repainted by Uptown Auto Craft of Upland, California in 2014 following the completion of body work and replacement of a section of the rear floor pan. A blue SunFast soft top was installed in 2018, and additional features include a hood scoop, dual side mirrors, a badge bar, and chrome bumpers with overriders. A pair of side curtains is included in the sale. The wiper arms are missing and blemishes around the body.
Chrome-finished 15″ wire wheels wear two-eared knock offs and are wrapped in 165HR15 Vredestein Sprint Classic tires. Braking is handled by front discs and rear drums. Bilstein shocks were installed in 2015, and the suspension and brakes were reportedly overhauled under current ownership.
The cabin features front bucket seats and a rear bench that were reupholstered in blue vinyl in 2018, at which time replacement carpets, door panels, and a dash pad were installed. The driver’s seat has been modified for taller occupants, and aftermarket insulation is said to have been added to the cabin. Amenities include a heater, a dashboard-mounted rearview mirror, a leather-wrapped shift knob, and an under-dash parcel shelf.
A banjo-style steering wheel fronts a 120-mph speedometer and a tachometer with a 5,250-rpm redline along with auxiliary gauges displaying oil pressure, water temperature, and fuel level. The five-digit odometer shows 25k miles, approximately 5k of which were added during current ownership. True mileage is unknown.
The 2.9-liter C-series inline-six is equipped with triple SU carburetors that were rebuilt during current ownership per the seller. Modifications include the following components:
Black-powder coated Wizard Cooling aluminum radiator
Pertronix Flame Thrower distributor
Tourist Trophy stainless steel exhaust system
Aluminum oil pan
Stainless steel fuel tank
Aluminum oil cooler
A Toyota W58 five-speed manual transmission was also installed under current ownership. A handful of receipts from some of the aforementioned work are included.
