1961 Competition Austin Healey 3000 For Sale

RH Classics is delighted to present this RHD BT7 Mk 1 with period and current competition history on behalf of one of most treasured friends from across the pond.

An extremely well-developed car offering a number of routes into historic motorsport; a fast road, ready prepared entrant to Hillclimb and Sprint events or an ideal basis for FIA HTP certification.

Shipped stateside from new and according to the current custodian, from 1962 onwards has been a regular entrant in Mid West and West Coast club racing, owned for the last 20 years by a well-respected racer and restorer.

Competed in the Vintage Sports Car Drivers’ Association and Gladiator Road Racing series where the car is a regular and highly placed entrant at Willow Springs, Laguna Seca, Sears Point, Aspen, Mountain View, Steamboat Springs, South Creek Raceway, Palm Springs, Monterey Pre-Historics and Road America Elkhart Lake among others, documented in the accompanying Race Log.

As a dry state Healey, it benefits from a highly original structure that’s never been repanelled; the floors, inner & outer sills, rear wings, bulkhead, rear cowl, boot lid and bonnet are all original and intact. Finished in period Lobelia Blue with matching 6J Cobra wires and a
desirable works hard top, this is a very purposeful looking car that goes as well as it looks and has been reconfigured in RHD.

Continually developed over the last 20 years, the current mechanical specification is as follows:

• 240 bhp at the flywheel
• Block bored to +0.62 and fitted with forged JE pistons
• Custom designed camshaft
• Micro-polished and zero-balanced crank
• Ported cylinder head with triple carbs
• Rudge inlet manifolds
• Straight cut box with Sebring ratio’s
• Quaife differential
• Upgraded suspension with spherical bearings
• High ratio steering box
• 3 piston front brakes
• Lightened and stiffened body, with front wings in alloy, plus much, much more!

Described by its custodian as ‘a lovely car, well set up, well equipped and in top condition’ we couldn’t have put it better ourselves.

Priced at £58,950 as it stands, UK registered and having gone through our workshops; we’d be delighted to discuss your requirements around converting the car to full FIA HTP certification.

In summary, this is a well presented, structurally superb, highly developed fast road Healey with significant history of Club racing in the ‘States that provides an ideal and cost-effective basis for conversion to FIA HTP.

The car is currently on its way to us, so if you’re seriously interested in acquiring this superb historied Healey, please get in touch.

With thanks to Bill Nessius Photography for permission to use the action shots of the Healey.
