I have always been a big fan of the Austin Healey cars. Great design and it is perhaps the best sounding classic sports car of all time.
Exterior: As you can see in the pictures, this car is probably more perfect looking today than it was when it left the factory back in 1963. The colour combination makes this car stand out and the shine and depth of the paintwork is superior. Rolling on a new set of chrome spoke wheels with Wredestein tyres. Burgundy soft top and the car comes with a cover for the soft top. When the cover is fitted, the car comes down more than what you see in the pictures here. Since this is the BJ7 model, you have a nice little backseat for the kids. One of the very few European open sports cars that actually has a small back seat. Even the frame itself has been replaced with a brand new frame from Kilmartin in Australia.
Interior: The interior of this car is impeccable; all the leather and carpet work has been done to a very high standard. The instruments were sent off to a specialist in Switzerland and look today like new again. This Austin Healey is using a collapsible steering for your safety as a driver. This is a very expensive upgrade.
The engine had a complete rebuild and has been driven around 20,000km after this, making two rounds back to Austin Healey meetings there. It starts easily today and runs absolutely perfect! The following upgrades have been made. Carburettors upgraded to SU 2”, camshaft is the same as BJ8, the ratio in the final drive has been changed from standard 3,9:1 to 3,5:1, an electric fan has been installed and under the dashboard are two 12V sockets for your GPS or phone.
History: This Austin Healey 3000 MK2 was sold new in America and came to Sweden in 2009. The present owner had it restored with no expenses spared. The work was done by a marque specialist here in Sweden and 1600 hours later it was standing there. The perfect Austin Healey!
