Registration: GVS 290

Chassis no: HBN7L10174

Mileage shown: 13,542

This stunning BN7 catches the true essence of a British sports car; the body is sleek with sporty lines, the exhaust note is raspy and the performance is exceptional.

The exterior is finished in Colorado Red and thanks to the re-spray in 2014 it is in excellent condition. The wire wheels and wing vents have been finished in Black which really adds to the sporty feel.

Thanks to a thorough mechanical sort out the engine is running beautifully and pulling well, perfectly ready to be used. The engine fires immediately and once sat behind the wheel the true brilliance of this Austin-Healey is realised.

This BN7 two-seater was built in June 1960 and despatched to Los Angeles, California later that month; GVS 290 made its return to the UK in 1992 at which point it was treated to a full restoration with Cream and Red livery. This included conversion to RHD; an engine and gearbox rebuild using a later MkII 4-speed box with overdrive on 3rd and 4th; full brake and suspension overhaul including new rear springs and shock absorbers; rebuilt diff; new wiring loom; interior retrim including new grey leather seat covers piped in red plus numerous other items detailed on many invoices on file.

Thanks to a life spent in the hot California sunshine, the body, chassis and bulkhead were found to be in excellent condition. The whole car was treated to a bare metal repaint in Colorado Red. New 72-spoke 5.5" chrome wire wheels were also fitted along with a stainless steel exhaust and a Mota-Lita woodrim steering wheel.

The previous owner acquired the car in 2006 and used it regularly including a trip to the Le Mans Classic during which the car performed faultlessly. Between 2013 and 2014 the car was improved still further with many bills on file detailing the works carried out. The car comes with no hood screens bumpers or Side screens as it was aleways used in italy in Sunny weather.

This included an overhaul of the brakes, steering and suspension (including king pins); new door skins, inner and outer sills, A and B posts, and a full respray. Prior to this the cylinder head was overhauled and new front brake discs fitted, the invoices for this lot amounting to over £12,000 excluding the repaint.

Since the early-1990s restoration was completed the car has covered just over 13,000 miles, the odometer being re-set to zero with numerous old MOTs

In our showroom and ready for viewing.
