AUSTIN HEALEY 3000 Mk 1 1960
Chassis No HBT7 5485 SOLD
An original RHD UK supplied Mk 1 Austin Healey 3000 BT7 2 +2 with wonderful history and in excellent condition. With one owner for the last 27 years it has just 39,000 miles recorded and the history file includes MOTs back to 1976 at 19000 miles. The car has been fastidiously maintained by its previous owner but it appears never to have had a major restoration so features ex factory panel fit and shut lines. The paint is very good, the interior original but smart and the car is very clean under the bonnet. In the popular colour combination of Healey Blue with Cream and a blue hood, it is fitted with front disc brakes, overdrive and wire wheels with newish Vredestein Radials – it drives very well indeed with strong oil pressure and steady temperature.
With some competition history from its early years supported by letters and photos in the history file, it was owned by Formula 2 and Sports Racing car driver Tony Hegbourne until his death at Spa in 1965. Overall an unusually original, genuine and correct Healey with an interesting history in lovely condition and very usable.
It can be viewed by appointment in West Sussex - For Further Information Email email@example.com or phone Alistair on 01403 786724
