1961 Austin-Healey 3000 MkII tri-carb/BT7, restored, 4-owners For Sale
RetroMarques Ltd is pleased to offer for sale on behalf of the owner: 1961 Austin-Healey 3000 MkII ‘tri-carb’ ‘HSK 219’
RetroMarques is pleased to offer a 2nd, rare, tri-carb Big Healey for sale. Originally exported to Gibraltar (ordered by a serviceman one assumes) and then the USA, this car was imported in 1991. Unusually, this Healey has extensive history from its time in the USA with a hand-written logbook detailing fuel, work and so on and appears only to have had 2 owners before importation in 1991. With the 2nd UK owner since 1994, ‘HSK’ has been professionally restored by ourselves to the customer’s requirements and is now presented for sale. The rebuild is fully documented with all invoices and a complete photo record.
Production details (Heritage Certificate):
Chassis No: HBT7-L/16329
Engine No: 29E-RU-H/2768
Paint: Colorado Red
Built: 17-20 November 1960
Despatched: 12 December 1961 to Gibraltar
Equipment: overdrive, wire wheels, MPH speedo, heater
Mileage: 89,436 (believed to be original)
MoT test: valid to July 2019
A restoration was started some years ago, then put aside until the Healey was recovered to us in Autumn 2017. Initial assessment concluded that there was merit in stripping panels and blasting so as to start with a clean, corrosion-free chassis and bodywork panels.
That done, preparation was carried out prior to paintwork and polishing and then building back up. The engine was checked and partially rebuilt, needing no more, the gearbox and overdrive overhauled and then all refitted. A new wiring loom laid in, instruments, dash and ancillaries fitted, cockpit trimmed and brightwork fitted before starting, tuning and some shakedown running. A precautionary MoT test was carried out as an independent check of roadworthiness. All weather equipment is present – hood, side-screens and, unusually, an original factory hardtop (in original condition).
The MkII tri-carb is one of the rarest of all Big Healeys and we’re pleased to offer a choice of two at differing condition and price-points; a useful comparison before choosing what’s right for you!
