Auction info:
Classic Cars, H&H Classic Auctions Ltd (27th July 2005)
1960 AUSTIN-HEALEY 3000 MKI
Reportedly supplied new to California, this particular example has been in the current ownership for approximately twelve years. Converted to right-hand drive as part of an extensive restoration using either "new or reconditioned parts", it was also treated to a brake system overhaul (discs, pipes), suspension refurbishment (bearings, rubber bushes, springs), engine rebuild, replacement wiring loom, gearbox / overdrive refit and new differential bearings etc. While, cosmetically it benefited from re-trimming (interior, hood, tonneau, sidescreens), re-chroming (new bumpers / over riders) and a bare metal respray. Finished in Colorado red over Old English White with grey leather upholstery, it is described by the vendor as being in excellent overall condition. Said to have covered less than 11,000 miles since work was completed, it had new rear springs, a stainless steel exhaust and a complete set of shock absorbers installed some twelve months ago. Riding on 72-spoke chrome wire wheels shod with fresh tyres, it is offered for sale with MOT and historic class (free) road tax both valid until June 2006.

Car returned to auction 3/16
classiccars.brightwells.com/viewdetails.php

Auction description:
Lot number 51
Hammer value £40,000
Description Austin-Healey 3000 MkIIa BJ7
Registration UYJ 256
Year 1962
Colour Colorado Red
Engine size 2,996 cc
Chassis No. HBJ7 L19945
Engine No. 29FRUM 679
Documents V5C; old style log book; MOT June 2016; nine old MOTs; Heritage Certificate; parts etc.

This fine 3000 MkIIa was dispatched from the works on 27th June 1962 destined for sun-drenched California where it appears to have spent most of its formative years. Documents on file show that in the early 1970s it resided in the San Diego area, the car arriving back on these shores in 1993 having been imported by Stevensons Garage in Loughborough who converted it to RHD and registered it in the UK on 21st July that year.

The accompanying Heritage Certificate states that it left the factory painted Colorado Red with a black interior and hood and was fitted with an overdrive, heater, adjustable steering column, laminated screen and road speed tyres.

Its current keeper has not driven the car in the rain since he purchased it in 1993 and has fastidiously maintained it regardless of cost. During his ownership, he has covered just 1,600 miles. The engine has been converted to use unleaded fuel and is fitted with a Kenlowe fan and there is a file of bills for work done over the period. The car comes with several boxes of useful spares and a useful car cover.

In remarkably rust-free condition, this dry-state Healey, with its desirable wind-up windows and proper hood, is ready for immediate use and would make a superb addition to any collection.

Car now offered at:

vandp.net/sales/1800/1960-austin-healey-3000-mki-bn7/

Seller's description:

Austin Healey

3000 MKI BN7

Year: 1960

Chassis no: HBN7L10174

Registration: GVS 290

Price: £42,000

Mileage shown: 13,542

 This stunning BN7 catches the true essence of a British sports car; the body is sleek with sporty lines, the exhaust note is raspy and the performance is exceptional.

 The exterior is finished in Colorado Red and thanks to the re-spray in 2014 it is in excellent condition. The wire wheels and wing vents have been finished in Black which really adds to the sporty feel.

 Thanks to a thorough mechanical sort out the engine is running beautifully and pulling well, perfectly ready to be used. The engine fires immediately and once sat behind the wheel the true brilliance of this Austin-Healey is realised.

 This BN7 two-seater was built in June 1960 and despatched to Los Angeles, California later that month; GVS 290 made its return to the UK in 1992 at which point it was treated to a full restoration with Cream and Red livery. This included conversion to RHD; an engine and gearbox rebuild using a later MkII 4-speed box with overdrive on 3rd and 4th; full brake and suspension overhaul including new rear springs and shock absorbers; rebuilt diff; new wiring loom; interior retrim including new grey leather seat covers piped in red plus numerous other items detailed on many invoices on file.

 Thanks to a life spent in the hot California sunshine, the body, chassis and bulkhead were found to be in excellent condition. The whole car was treated to a bare metal repaint in Colorado Red. New 72-spoke 5.5" chrome wire wheels were also fitted along with a stainless steel exhaust and a Mota-Lita woodrim steering wheel.

 The previous owner acquired the car in 2006 and used it regularly including a trip to the Le Mans Classic during which the car performed faultlessly. Between 2013 and 2014 the car was improved still further with many bills on file detailing the works carried out. The car comes with no hood screens bumpers or Side screens as it was aleways used in italy in Sunny weather.

 This included an overhaul of the brakes, steering and suspension (including king pins); new door skins, inner and outer sills, A and B posts, and a full respray. Prior to this the cylinder head was overhauled and new front brake discs fitted, the invoices for this lot amounting to over £12,000 excluding the repaint.

 Since the early-1990s restoration was completed the car has covered just over 13,000 miles, the odometer being re-set to zero with numerous old MOTs
