This Big Healey is a great example of one of the 5,450 MkII BJ7 models produced. Fitted with the desirable factory overdrive, it is a very solid, dry Texas car recently out of the collection of its knowledgable long-term owner who not only loved this car but also kept copious maintenance records documenting his fastidious care over the years.

Its body is incredible, with original factory paint in the engine compartment, its chassis and undercarriage, and the car benefits from a fresh, proper rebuild of its original engine, transmission, factory overdrive unit, and the complete fuel, braking and clutch systems by the appropriate specialists. The car has also recently benefited from a show-quality repaint in its original and stunning Colorado Red color, new tires on restored correct painted wire wheels, a polished stainless steel Tourist Trophy exhaust and full service; the vehicle performs as good as it looks. In total there are over $40,000 of receipts for recent work, along with a comprehensive file from its previous owner. It is a car that has been made to drive not be rolled in and out of trailers.

These Big Healeys are incredibly fun and iconic British sports cars that, when equipped with overdrive and fully sorted as this car is, are wonderful high-speed touring machines. These later BJ7 models have tolerable weather protection with roll up windows and snug fitting tops, confidence inspiring disc brakes and very capable handling along with an exhaust note to die for. Parts are readily available and inexpensive, and the club support is phenomenal. All things considered there is no question why all the experts consider a proper Big Healey to offer tremendous value in today's market. Beyond that, this car in particular is an outstanding example which also offers the benefit of a recent, no-expense spared thorough restoration and is in truly turn-key condition. It offers the driving experience these cars are famous for, with none of the deferred maintenance problems that arise when they don't come from good, caring homes.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
