1962 Austin-Healey 3000 Mk II BT7

$45,000 - $50,000

RM | Online Only - DRIVING INTO SUMMER 21 - 29 MAY 2020

Chassis No. H-BT7-L/15827

Engine No. 29E-U-H/2222

Desirable early Mark II BT7 roadster

Numbers-matching 2,912-cc inline six-cylinder engine with triple S.U. carburetors

Four-speed manual with Laycock de Normanville overdrive

Finished in striking Black/Reno Red livery

This 1962 Austin-Healey 3000 Mk II roadster is one of just 5,451 triple-carb BT7s produced, putting it among the scarcer iterations of the classic Big Healey. An early-production Mark II, this example is one of the last of the pure roadster versions before the 3000 series grew larger and increasingly luxurious. This car’s British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate shows it left Longbridge at the close of October 1961, destined for the North American market. It was originally delivered to San Francisco and is believed to have spent much of its life in California.

In the early 2000s, the Austin-Healey underwent a complete restoration, and was refinished in this beautiful Black/Reno Red livery. It is pleasingly well-finished, with authentic detailing of the red leather-trimmed cockpit and of the numbers-matching engine. Additional features include chrome knock-off wire wheels with period-correct Michelin radial tires, Laycock overdrive, and Smiths heater. The high-quality restoration has mellowed gracefully, making this 3000 the ideal companion for regular top-down drives around ones favorite country roads.

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?
