Story

Spectacular One Owner Austin-Healey 3000 Mk 1 BN7.

The Austin-Healey 3000 is a British sports car built from 1959 to 1967, and is the best known of the "big Healey" models. The car's bodywork was made by Jensen Motors, and the vehicles were assembled by Austin-Healey at the Abingdon works. The 3-litre 3000 was a highly successful car, which won its class in many European rallies in its heyday and is still raced in vintage racing and rallying competitions by enthusiasts today.

The original 3000 was built to replace the 100-6 model commencing in March 1959 with production through to March 1961 as models BN7 Mark I (2-seater) and BT7 Mark I (2+2 version). It only became known as the Mark I after the Mark II was released, having no designator prior. It featured a 2912 cc inline 6 cylinder engine, with twin SU carburetors and Girling front disc brakes. Wire wheels, overdrive gearbox, laminated windscreen, heater, adjustable steering column, detachable hard top, and two-tone paint were available as options.

A total of 13,650 Mark Is were made (2,825 BN7, and 10,825 BT7).
According to British Motor Industry Heritage Trust this car was built between February 26 – 29, 1960, shipped to Canada and sold by Fred Deeley Limited in Vancouver BC, July 11, 1960. It has been in the careful hands of the same owner ever since. Factory options include Wire Wheels, Overdrive, Heater, Adjustable Steering Column, Laminated Windscreen and a rare Factory Hard Top. A full nut and bolt restoration was completed in the late 90's and the car has been driven just over 1,200 miles since then. Always maintained in a climate controlled garage it is as good, or better than, the day it was built. Beautiful Ivory White exterior over immaculate Black Leather with White Piping, Black, as new Soft Top and matching Ivory White Factory Hard Top. With only 1,400 miles since new this an opportunity to own a rare, beautifully maintained example of a legendary British sports car.
