Lot #134533

This 1960 Austin-Healey 3000 BT7 was delivered new to Montreal, Quebec, and was subsequently converted to right-hand drive and modified for vintage racing in the 1990s with custom aluminum bodywork and a five-speed manual transmission. Powered by a 2.9-liter inline-six, the car is finished in green over black upholstery and features a white removable hardtop, triple Weber carburetors, 15” alloy wheels, four-wheel disc brakes, a trunk-mounted fuel cell, and a wood-rimmed steering wheel. The car later spent time in the UK before being imported to the US in 2002, and work performed since 2022 has included rebuilding the brake servo, generator, and carburetors as well as replacing the starter and fuel sending unit. Acquired by the selling dealer in 2023, this BT7 is now offered in Illinois with a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate, service records dating back to the early 1990s, build photos, and a clean Wisconsin title.

The car was fitted with aluminum bodywork and repainted in green during the build. An oil cooler is mounted behind a cutout in the front valance, and the grille has been modified with a cold air inlet. The door handles have been shaved, and an exterior battery cutoff switch has been added along with fender vents and exposed hood locks. The white hardtop features a vent above the plastic rear window.

Eight-spoke 15” alloy wheels are mounted with 195/65 Continental ContiTouringContact tires showing 2005 and 2006 production date codes. Stopping power is provided by four-wheel discs, and the servo was rebuilt and the hoses were replaced in 2022.

The right-hand-drive cabin features low-back bucket seats trimmed in black with color-coordinated carpets. The dashboard fascia is covered with gray vinyl, and aluminum panels have been added to the parcel shelf. Other appointments include a wood-rimmed steering wheel, a wood shifter knob, a fire extinguisher, and lap belts. A Fuel Safe racing cell has been mounted in the trunk along with an electric fuel pump. The headliner for the removable hardtop is sagging and discolored.

Instrumentation consists of a 140-mph speedometer, a tachometer with a 6,500-rpm redline, and auxiliary gauges. The five-digit odometer shows 3,900 miles, and total mileage is unknown.

The 2.9-liter inline-six is equipped with three Weber side-draft carburetors as well as a Mallory electronic ignition conversion kit, a spin-on oil filter housing, and tubular exhaust headers with side-exit outlets. Service in 2022 included rebuilding the carburetors, adjusting the valves, refinishing the valve cover, and replacing the fuel level sending unit. The generator was also rebuilt and the voltage regulator was replaced. A high-torque starter was installed in 2023.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission sourced from a Toyota Supra and installed using a Smitty’s conversion kit.

The BMIHT certificate indicates that the car was dispatched on July 12, 1960, for the North American export market and lists factory equipment and identification numbers.

Photos taken at various stages of the build will accompany the car.

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?
