This Austin-Healey 3000 BT7 has had a ground-up restoration with low miles since it was completed. The 2912cc engine was rebuilt with a rear crankshaft oil seal kit. The 5-speed manual transmission with overdrive was rebuilt as well. The car was taken totally apart and stripped to bare metal, including the body panels. Features include Petronics electronic ignition, new chrome wheels with stainless spokes, new tires, and new interior and top. This is a great driver.
