Description
 
According to the BMIHT Heritage Certificate, this BJ8 phase 2 Healey was built between 26th & 29th September 1966 for personal export to North America. Chassis No: H-BJ8-L/37972 is finished in its original specification and colour scheme of British Racing Green with Black Leather trim and a Black vinyl Soft Top, Black carpets, Heater, Adjustable Steering Column, Laminated Windscreen, Cigar lighter, Radio, 2912cc S6 Engine, 4 Speed Geabox with Overdrive on 3rd & 4th gears and Wire Wheels. The car was imported back from the USA in 1989 and was purchased by Imran Khan for £15,750 on behalf of his friend Jonathan Stubbs. The car was taken to Munich, Germany by Mr Stubbs in early 1992 and was given to a local specialist in Munich to fully restore. The original Engine was removed from the car and sent to Curran Auto repairs in Mertham, Surrey who completely rebuilt, balanced and Blue-printed the Engine and upon completion it was sent back to Germany to be refitted into the car. The restoration in Germany was finally completed in june 1993 and this included many new panels including wings, floors and sills, new brakes, new suspension parts, Clutch, all hydraulics, tubular exhaust manifold + exhaust with side pipes and numerous other components + there is a huge history file containing receipts and invoices for works and parts used and totalling almost £10,000. The mileage on the car upon completion of all works was circa 20,600 miles. In 1998 the car was brought back to the UK and in August 2000 it was given to Classic Coachbuilders in Sittingbourne, Kent for a conversion to RHD plus repairs to doors and sills and Engine bay repaint - £5,436.25. In January 2001 they fitted a new interior, including front seats retrimmed, door trim pads, carpets, new vinyl hood and various sealing rubbers + a full service, new Brake Servo, new Distributor and a new Dynamo, totalling £5,803.55. In total, almost £22,000 had been spent on the car before we sold it on his behalf to the current owners in April 2002 for £25,000 with a mileage of 33,617. (13,000 miles on rebuilt engine) After 12 years they have decided to part with the car and we are delighted to now offer the car for sale. During their ownership they have had the car serviced and MOT'd every year and added a few items including new Chrome Wire Wheels and a new wooden Mota-Lita Steering Wheel. Orchard Restorations have looked after it for them during this time and it has now has 43,000 miles on the speedometer and we have just returned from a 600 mile 'trouble-free' trip to the Le Mans Classic 2014. It is not a concourse car, but it really is in excellent condition and is an exceptionally nice car to drive as we can testify! Car on display @ our showrooms
