Description of 1960 Austin Healey 3000

1960 Austin Healey 3000 BT7 MK1 You are bidding on a very rare 1960 Austin Healey 3000 BT7 MKI that is presented in the very desirable black over red leather interior combination. This particular model has been converted to a very strong running Ford racing 2. 3 liter four cylinder that has an Offenhauser intake and Holley 600 CFM 4 barrel carb. The vehicle is a REAL 3000 (not a replica) and since it doesn’t have a big V8 it has not been cut up to complete the conversion. It still has the original wire wheels (including the spare) in good condition. The frame and underbody are very solid and the vehicle is rust free. The top and windows are original and still in decent shape. These big Healeys have been steadily increasing in value for a long time now and with most of them rotted away a good solid example is getting harder and harder to find and will continue to rise in value. This particular 3000 is in very solid condition. it would be considered a solid driver and with the Ford motor it is extremely reliable. It would also make for a solid start to a restoration if someone wanted to put an original healey motor. Below is a report on the condition of various aspects of the car but if you have any other questions please feel free to call 440-334-0012. Paint:The paint is in excellent driver quality condition. It has a very nice shine and good deep luster. There are only a few small flaws such as minor stone chips and some cracking on the hood.

Trim:The chrome on the car is in good driver quality shape. there is minor pitting but no rust and all the pieces still have a good shine.
