1962 Austin Healey 3000
In May of 1961 BMC upgraded their flagship model with three SU HS4 carburetors, modified valve springs and a new camshaft, they called the MKII, it was an alternative to the Triumph TR3A or Jaguar E-Type. The MKII was initially offered as an occasional 4-seat roadster called the BT7 or the 2-seat variant from known as the BN7. Both versions used flat front windscreens and detachable side curtains in the style of a roadster. Later cars came equipped with a center-located top-loader transmission and a fiberglass transmission tunnel, of these the BT7 top-loader is an especially rare and desirable combination. The rear panel of the BT7 was cut out much deeper towards the trunk to make room of the small jumper seats in the rear. Like the earlier 3000s, the MKII featured BMC’s C-Series six-cylinder engine with a 4-speed + overdrive gearbox. It used a separate ladder-type frame and a steel body. Production of the BT7 4-seat roadster was limited to only 5,096 units. This is stunning example of a 1962 Austin Healey 3000 BT7. It is equipped with the original motor and original TOP LOADER 4 speed transmission with OVERDRIVE. This car does not have side windows or a soft top but they car be easly obtained. It is finished in near show quality Bright Red with Lt. Tan interior. This rare and collectible sports car runs and drives great, super handling, quick, and a very sound investment.
