1962 Austin Healey 3000 MK II BT7

Due to (heavy) expenditure on a track car, up for sale is my beautiful A-H 3000 MKII. This is a fully restored car (body, engine, and everything) and it runs and looks just great. I cannot guarantee the mileage, however from what I was told when I bought it plus the miles that I have put on it, it has traveled less than 4000 miles since the restoration.
The 3000 MkII looked much the same as previous big Healey's but got vertical slats on the radiator and triple SU 1.5in carburettors instead of the original twin 1.75in. This provided a little more power and in the higher ranges, the car was quick though, as one reviewer put it, "at bumbling around speeds, the skin on the rice pudding was quite safe"! It does make it a little more difficult to tune, and currently has a little run-on after the ignition is switched off, something I am still trying to cure.
Other than that, it is in perfect condition with full red carpeting offsetting the light gray seats on the interior and a gleaming Colorado Red exterior with beautiful 60 spoke knock off wheels. All gaps are good, and the engine is in terrific condition. Like all Healey's (and many other LBC's) it does drip a little oil but really nothing of significance. More pictures are available (including of the restoration), on request, and it does come with a matching soft top, and side curtains.
