Description of 1961 Austin Healey 3000 N/A

This is a beautiful and relatively rare two-seater early Mk I 3000 BN7 (I think only 2500 built). I've owned the car since 1984. I bought it in college and then had it professionally rebuilt at Fourintune in Wisconsin in the late 90s. Since then the car has been stored covered in a heated garage and driven sporadically. I get it out a few times a year but it has seen very little driving in recent years. The Fourintune restoration was body off and complete. Frame is spotless ... there is zero rust. I removed the front bumper and had vintage driving lights installed at the time of restoration (I still have the bumper). The car has the removable hard top, tonneau, and a new soft top. The hardtop has both original interior braces. I finally broke down and installed real/original Raydots on the front bumpers (it took me years to commit to drilling the holes). I just had the wheels powder coated and they look great. I had the top end done perhaps 15 years ago? The car starts and runs great. The overdrive works. I have it serviced at a local British car garage. I just had the oil changed and the brakes serviced perhaps 6 months ago. The exhaust is in good shape. The tires are well matched (so many Healeys have the incorrect tire size for the wheel wells.) There are some scratches on the rear interior where the top frame fits behind the seats. I am providing some photos and details but for interested parties I have almost 40 years of history with this car and would be glad to chat and provide any/all details and additional photos/videos as requested. I hope to find a good home for it!
