1961 Austin-Healey 3000 MkII, Tri-carb, History, Upgrades, VGC For Sale

RetroMarques Ltd is pleased to offer for sale on behalf of the owner:
1961 Austin-Healey 3000 MkII (tri-carb) BT7, ‘MVS 434’

A very usable – and rare - tri-carb Big Healey, the last of the roadster models before the BJ7 convertible with wind-up windows, fitted hood and curved windscreen took over. An unusual example given the build was to LHD European spec for a serviceman in Dusseldorf, hence the lighting configuration. ‘MVS’ remains a matching numbers car in her original Old English White paint. An older restoration, she is not too pristine to be used yet still presents very well having been very well maintained.

Production details (Heritage Certificate):
Chassis No: H-BT7-L/16810
Eng No: 29E-RU-H/3313
Paint: Ivory White
Trim: Black (now blue)
Build: 16-20 December 1961
Despatch; 12 January 1962 to Dusseldorf, Germany
2 previous owners (in the UK), the previous for 15 years

History file:
Old MoT test certificates (since 2002)
MoT (was valid to 9 January 2019) exempt
Invoices for panels & engine components, full restoration in 90/91/92 (on import)
Facet fuel pump
72-spoke wheels fitted with Avon CR6 ZZ 175/70 tyres
6-branch manifold, stainless exhaust (silencer double-skinned)
New water pump, high-capacity radiator, new hoses, 5-blade fan
New alternator conversion
Rebuilt gearbox (tulip ratios) & OD, new clutch, new hi-torque starter motor (all 2017/18)
Blue mohair hood and tonneau cover, new carpet set, new seat runners
Thick-grip, dark wood Moto-Lita woodrim wheel and wind deflectors fitted (removable)

A really smart, older restoration tri-carb Healey which remains in good condition and – importantly - is running really well. She completed a recent Le Mans trip, in hot weather and ran faultlessly; a touring kit if spares is with the car. The previous owner kept her for summer use only and dry-stored her raised off the ground in winter. ‘MVS’ has a full set of weather equipment including sidescreens and bag and the navy blue trim suits the Old English White paint very well – a striking combination.

In summary a thoroughly usable example of the rare tri-carb Healey which presents well and is driving nicely – clearly a well-maintained car and showing plenty of recent work by Bill Rawles.
