1962 Austin-Healey 3000 MkII
Chassis no. H-BT7-L/16109
Engine no. 29E-RU-H/2463
A left-hand drive BT7 (2+2) model built for the North American market, this Austin-Healey 3000 has the late MkII version's triple SU carburettors and central gear lever, and was despatched from the factory to San Francisco, California in February 1962.

The desirable overdrive transmission, adjustable steering column, heater, laminated windscreen and wire wheels are among the original items of equipment listed on the accompanying BMIHT certificate. Re-imported into the UK circa 1996, the Healey was then stripped to a bare chassis and bodyshell and rebuilt with new floor panels, sills and outriggers. New interior trim, carpets and hood were fitted also, while other noteworthy features include a tonneau cover and an electric radiator cooling fan.

Immediately after the current vendor purchased the car in 1997 the mechanicals were totally rebuilt and the engine fitted with a new cylinder block (complete short engine with pistons, crankshaft, etc).

The car has been garaged since then in very dry climate and is described as in excellent condition in all respects with 'as new' engine having fewer than 300 kilometres on its bores. At time of cataloguing the Healey was being serviced by a specialist, complete with a new battery. Accompanying documentation consists of the aforementioned BMIHT certificate and an old UK V5 registration document for the age-related mark 'XFO 226F'.
