A late example of the 'big' Healey, MPH's 1967 BJ8 model started life as an American-market car but was brought back to the UK in 2014, when it was given its age-related registration plate. Unusually, it remains in left-hand drive form. The red and white bodywork and off-white interior are in good order and the body is said to be rust-free. The vendor reports that electronic ignition is fitted, and that it starts and runs well, the engine maintaining good oil pressure.
