The history file contains a full photographic record (120+ Pictures) of before, during and after restoration. The complete body and chassis bare metal stripped, sanded/painted to perfection giving a uniformed deep gloss shine. It's clear to see from the pictures that it's still stunning today which is testament to the outstanding quality of workmanship carried out 8 years ago. The panel fit is perfect throughout as per it left the factory all panels are the originals. All body fittings, trims, lights, bumpers, door handles etc. were all refurbished or replaced using genuine parts where possible. The red vinyl hood was replaced during the restoration and still looks as if its never been used.

The underside of the car is equally as impressive as the top, works included stripped and painted fuel tank, suspension arms, covers, propshaft, diff, leaf springs etc. etc. the list goes on and on nothing missed.

The attention to detail and condition... Simply amazing

The chrome 60 spoke wire wheels and chrome spinners are in fantastic blemish free order. All matching quality Maxxis Victra 510 tyres 165/80 R15 have plenty of tread remaining.

A joy to drive and what a sound track.

Summary

Matching numbers Austin-Healey 3000 with Heritage Certificate, originally a left-hand drive BJ7 Mark IIA Convertible model delivered new to Nuffield Exports Limited USA on 27th July 1962. The Healey returned back to the UK from Oregon USA in 1989 and for 23 years remained unused and dry stored before its restoration commenced in 2010.

The only UK owner of 31 years carried out an extensive restoration undertaken during 2010 to 2012 has been fully documented in the comprehensive history file with invoices for parts and detailed work carried out, plus a full photographic record of over 120 pictures of the car before, during and after restoration,

More Details

The Austin-Healey 3000 is probably the very epitome of the classic British sports car and said to have attained classic status whilst still in production.

In January 1962 the 2+2-only MkII Convertible (or MkIIA) version of the much-loved Austin-Healey 3000 appeared, boasting long overdue refinements such as winding windows, swivelling quarter-lights and fixed foldaway hood. The reversion to easier-to-tune, twin-SU carburettors cut maximum output by 1bhp, yet thanks to the superior aerodynamics, conferred by its curved windscreen, the MkII Convertible contrived to be marginally faster than its immediate predecessor, reaching 116mph flat out. MkII production ceased in 1962 after 5,095 2+2s and 355 two-seaters had been built, though the Convertible continued until the introduction of the 3000 MkIII in 1963.
