A desirable early left-hand-drive 3000 MkI BT7
Built for the North American market
A pleasant example of a versatile classic
The ideal basis for a recommissioning project

According to its British Motor Industry Heritage Trust (BMIHT) certificate, this 3000 Mk I was built during April 1959 before being despatched on 20 May 1959. An original left-hand-drive example built for the North American market, this car was apparently finished in Ivory over Red, and well-optioned. At some point in its life, this Healey appears to have been rebuilt as a BN7 two-seater. Importantly, it still retains its matching-numbers engine.

A fun classic for any enthusiast, this Healey will require recommissioning after a period of static display. Once it is ready for the road, it could be an ideal car for touring around Europe and beyond.

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?
