This 1962 Austin-Healey 3000 Mk II is one of 355 triple-carburetor BN7 two-seat roadsters built and was sold new in the US before being imported to Canada in 1979. It was reportedly purchased by the seller in 2000 and received a 19-year refurbishment that concluded in April 2019. Power is from a rebuilt 3.0-liter inline-six equipped with three SU HS4 carburetors and paired with a side-shift four-speed manual transmission with overdrive. The car is finished in red and black over a red leather and vinyl interior. Equipment includes a black soft top and 60-spoke wire wheels. This BN7 is now offered in Canada with a BMIHT certificate, literature, a tonneau cover, side curtains, a spare tire, and clean Quebec registration.
The car received a refurbishment by the seller between 2000 and 2019, and the exterior was reportedly stripped, coated in epoxy primer, and refinished in Colorado Red and black. A black Everflex vinyl soft top is equipped, and side curtains and a black tonneau cover are included in the sale.
Painted 60-spoke 15″ wire wheels wear Dunlop RS5 tires. A spare tire is located behind the seats.
New steel seat-bottom structures were installed while replacement red Connolly leather and vinyl were used in upholstering the seats, center armrest, and door and side panels. The two-seat cabin also features a red dashboard, red Karvel-style carpeting, and black piping on the seats.
A “side-shift” lever and a banjo-style steering wheel are fitted. Smiths instrumentation consists of a 6k-rpm tachometer, a 120-mph speedometer, and gauges for fuel level, water temperature, and oil pressure. The five-digit odometer shows 42k miles, approximately 50 of which were added by the seller.
The 3.0-liter inline-six is equipped with three SU HS4 carburetors and reportedly was rebuilt during the refurbishment with oversize pistons and rings, a polished crankshaft, new crankshaft bearings, a rebuilt cylinder head with hardened valve seats, braided fuel hoses, a solid fuel line, and a rebuilt fuel pump.
The engine number on the above plate matches that listed on the accompanying British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate. Other stampings and serial numbers can be viewed in the gallery, including numbers on the body and transmission that match the BMIHT certificate.
Shifting is through a four-speed manual transmission with overdrive that received new rings, seals, and a clutch during the refurbishment. A factory-style exhaust system with mandrel-bent headers was fitted by the seller and is painted satin black.
The British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate lists a build date of July 3, 1961 and US delivery. A 1969 California registration card can be viewed in the gallery along with a document provided by the seller and also photos of the car prior to and during the restoration.
