Vehicle Description

Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this spectacular 1962 Austin Healey BT7 3000 Mark II 2+2 in beautiful condition. This car has been completely restored; it looks amazing, runs great, and is an excellent driver. This Austin Healey is priced to sell, always turns heads, and gets a TON of attention going down the road. It received a Gold level certification from the Austin Healey Concours Registry. The award is still with the car and pictured below. The car is finished in the beautiful and highly desirable color combination of Bright Blue over Dark Blue. Please peruse all of the photos, numbers, video, and information below to get a true sense of how nice, clean, and striking this Austin Healey really is. This 3000 Mark II comes with a wealth of original documentation and records. This 1962 Austin Healey was purchased brand new on September 15, 1962 from "The Auto Show" in Pawtucket, RI. The original Bill of Sale from that dealership, signed by the original owner, is still with the car and pictured below. Interestingly, the Bill of Sale shows that the original owner traded in a 1960 Volkswagen on this Austin Healey. The original Conditional Sales Contract and financing form is also included with the car and pictured below.

The car also comes with a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certified Copy of a Factory Record and a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Production Record Trace Certificate. There is a stamping on the engine pictured below, "29E-RU-H/5321." This is the correct number according to the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Factory Record. The gearbox number, 3128, and body number,18811, are also correct and pictured below.

The removable soft-top, (hood), removable side windows, and tonneau cover are included with this Austin Healey. The car is also well optioned with wire wheels and functional overdrive.

As a side note, this Austin Healey is not a dealer auction vehicle. We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our Corvettes come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the Mark II, just give us a call.

Exterior

The bright blue exterior is in fantastic driver condition. As one can see in the photos the finish has dazzling gloss, deep shine, and smooth finished. The chrome bumpers and other bight work on the car look wonderful with a brilliant finish and no rust or pitting. Both doors open and shut nicely. The knock off wheels are in excellent condition with a nice finish and no curb rash. The tires are sized 165/80R15 with 95% tread left. The frame and everything else on the car is completely solid. I encourage you to closely inspect the many underside photos to see how truly clean the car is. There are absolutely no rust issues with the car what so ever and the underside looks great.

This Austin Healey looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

Interior

The Bright Blue interior of the 3000 Mark II is in outstanding condition. The seats look lovely with no holes, splits, or excessive wear. They are not worn in the typical area on the bolster where the driver gets in and out. The carpet is in great condition with no rips or holes. The chrome and other brightwork inside the car has a terrific finish and looks great overall. The dash and console are in nice condition with no fading or sun damage. The gauge faces are nice and clean and the lenses are crisp and clear. The door panels are in excellent condition. The convertible top (hood) and tonneau cover are in excellent condition with no tears or holes. The rear window in soft-top looks great, it is not scratched, foggy, or yellowed.

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

Mechanical

This Austin Healey seems to be in good mechanical condition. The car starts right away every time, runs well, and idles smooth. The car is an awesome driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. In the video below one can see the car accelerating on the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to stoplight, accelerating away, and going through some curves. Please note that it shifts properly, there are no strange vibrations, and the car performs quite well overall. There is no blue smoke when starting or driving the car. The brakes are responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The transmission shifts well and the shifter is tight. The clutch feels good. This Austin Healey has plenty of power for it's size and is quite nimble. Also, the engine compartment is beautifully clean, detailed, and correct as one can see in the photos.

The horn works as do all the exterior lights, indicators, and wipers. All of the gauges work. The fan for the heater works. The dash lights work as one can see in the video. The headlights and brights work. As with many other older carbureted cars, this Austin Healey is cold blooded. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the top down on a beautiful day and the 4-speed transmission.

Overall Condition

Overall, this 1962 Austin Healey 3000 MK II 2+2 is in excellent condition. It is a Gold Level award winner from the Austin Healey Concours Registry. We have this Austin Healey priced to sell. The market on the 3000 Austin Healey's is very hot right now. The value of these cars has gone up exponentially in recent years. They are all solid investments for a collector. This is especially true for highly desirable examples like this Mark II. This Austin Healey always gets a ton of attention driving down the road. It is very apparent that the vehicle has been well taken care of by its previous owners. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.
