1959 Austin Healey 3000

I am listing the love of my life, my 1959 Austin Healey BT7 due to ill health. The award winning car has been completely restored by myself and professional restorers. The motor and transmission with overdrive have been completely rebuilt and the motor shows 70 pounds of pressure when it starts. You will love the hydraulic overdrive! All new wiring with many additional fuses and converted to 12 volt with negative ground with alternator. Complete interior by Heritage but unfortunately the installer burned a couple of places in the green carpet when he installed it. 60 spoke chrome wheels backed up by `Putzke's "Fahrspass" shock absorbers and new rear leaf springs by Denis Welch Motorsport. 91204 original miles shown on the odometerbut I don't believe I have put 5000 miles on it since rebuilding. New top frame and relatively new top and toneau as you can see by the pictures. PL 700 headlamps with headlamp relays. Radiator overflow. New grill, cowl, and grille moulding. Spin on oil filter adapter. Gear reduction starter. Exhaust wrapped. Motor compartment and underneath lined with the flexiblealuminum heat shield in motor compartment and underneath. New heat shields around motor. Everything re-chromed. All instruments re-done. New gas tank and sending unit.
