Heritage Notes

This data is from Heritage, but all i could give them is the data for the engine. The car VIN is a compilation of 1960 engine in a 1958 car. (VIN was changed before I bought the car). The mechanics and myself have agreed it is a 1958 BN4 (drum brakes) with a 1960 3000 engine (automatic choke)

Owner: Rob Madsen

This is my second healey - the first one (1959 BN4) was totaled in a collision with a suburban in 1985. Soon after, I bought this one. Currently in 4+ year restoration.

The Car is in rebuild, nearly done. As best as I can tell it is a 1958 BN4 with a 1960 3000 Mark I engine. if it didn't have drum brakes all around, i would think it is a 1960. The vin tag is missing, but i used all other info to go to Heritage and get what certification i could get (reflected in this record). Heritage thinks it is a 1960 BT7 - which makes sense except for the 4 drum brakes. Heritage says disks in front, drums in back (which is standard).

After significant research, the mechanics and I have come to realize that the car is really a 1960 3000/BT7. The car was in several serious crashes in its lifetime as was evidenced in the original chassis that i replaced. The drum brakes were added instead of disks probably in the 1960s when used parts were readily available after one of the collisions.

Restoration complete in June 2018! On the road a few times a month - hopefully even on dry road Colorado winters.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
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?
