Classic Car Auctions says:

A delightful example of an early 3000, correctly presented...

 

  • The BT7 featured front disc brakes, wire wheels as standard and a more powerful engine
  • This left-hand drive example was initially supplied to the US but returned to the UK in 1991
  • Restored in the States and has recently been repainted to a very high standard in its original colours
  • Classically finished in Old English White over black with a matching factory hardtop
  • The 2+2 black leather interior sports a wood rim wheel and remains pleasingly standard
  • Fitted with the 124bhp, 2,912cc BMC C-Series engine and a four-speed gearbox with overdrive
  • We understand it took part in the 2000 Monte Carlo Classic Historique Rally, starting from Oslo
  • Supplied with a partial history file containing some older documentation
  • With its gleaming paintwork, chrome wire wheels and tidy engine bay, this is a super 'Big Healey'
  • Very sensibly guided, this classic Healey would make a wonderful European touring companion
