The Austin Healey is the quintessential British Sports Car and this original RHD BT7 2+2 Mk2 3000 is the best example we have seen to date.
All classic cars are difficult to restore well, but some are more difficult than others. With the Austin Healey your eye seems to go straight for the panel and door gaps. Any irregularities and somehow the wonderful lines and radii of this iconic sports car don’t flow as they were intended.
3151 DW restored by one of its custodians to such a high level that it has been awarded many concours wins and is still today simply in fabulous condition.
It’s not just the bodywork but the continuous care and improvement to the running gear, engine, and cooling system. The underside of car reflects the same highstandard.
Everything about this car reveal the care and attention to detail that has gone onto getting this car to a concours winning standard. The hood, tonneau all fit beautifully, and the latter has its correct reinforced metal ribs to ensure that the cover retains its shape and performs as it should.
We are reassured when the restoration is supported by detailed photos, showing each stage of the restoration process and that the work has been thorough and correct
There is good provenance with this 3-owner car, with a number of substantial recent invoices for mechanical improvement.
The car has just undergone a service which included the radiator being fitted with additional cores for improved cooling.
If you are looking for a good Austin Healey or one of the best British Sports Cars made, then you should consider this car.
Any inspection welcome.
