This 1960 Austin-Healey 3000 Mk I was refurbished in two-tone blue and white over blue upholstery in the early 1990s and was acquired by the seller’s spouse in 1998. Power is provided by a replacement 2.9L inline-six mated to a four-speed manual transmission and equipment includes a removable hardtop, fender-mounted mirrors, chrome bumpers, a locking flip-top fuel cap, 15″ wire wheels, a PerTronix electronic distributor, a heater, and an adjustable steering column. This 3000 BT7 is now offered with service and refurbishment invoices, a white convertible top, sliding-window side curtains with a storage bag, two tonneau covers, removed steel wheels with chrome hubcaps, a factory engine valve cover, a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate, and a clean Illinois title in the seller’s name.

The car was finished from the factory in Colorado Red and was repainted in two-tone blue over white in 1991. During the refurbishment, the front cross member, right-front outrigger as well as both floorboards, the rocker panels, and fender doglegs were replaced. Features include a white removable hardtop, fender-mounted bullet-style mirrors, chrome bumpers with overriders, a fender-mounted radio antenna, and a locking flip-top fuel filler cap. Close-up photos showing a wiper scratch in the windshield glass and blemishes in the paint and top can be viewed in the gallery. An uninstalled convertible frame and white soft top are included.

Chrome 15″ wire wheels secured by two-eared knock-off nuts wear 165/80 Classic All Season Radial LL800 tires that are said to have been mounted in 2019. A spare with a matching wire wheel is housed in the trunk. Braking is provided by front discs and rear drums. The rear springs and shocks were replaced during the refurbishment in 1991.

The cockpit features 2+2 seating upholstered in blue vinyl with white piping as well as a matching dash pad and door panels and faded blue carpeting. Features include a heater, a dash-mounted rearview mirror, a passenger grab handle, and quick-release race-style lap belts.

A banjo-style steering wheel mounted atop an adjustable steering column fronts Smiths instrumentation consisting of a 120-mph speedometer, a tachometer, and gauges for oil pressure, coolant temperature, and fuel level. The five-digit mechanical odometer shows 85k miles.

The replacement 2.9-liter inline-six sends power to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission. Equipment includes dual SU carburetors and a cast aluminum valve cover. The seller reports that a PerTronix Flame Thrower electronic distributor was installed in 2017 and an oil change was performed in 2021. Oil leaks from the engine and transmission are noted.

Corrosion is noted on the undercarriage.

The British Motor Industry Heritage Trust lists the serial numbers, factory colors, and equipment along with the build date and destination.

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?
