Vehicle Description

As the last of the breed, the BJ8's benefitted from all the updates and improvements made over the production years, featuring gorgeous burl wood dashes, roll up windows, full weather protection, improved road clearance, and other refinements. Aside from the model characteristics, this BJ8 is truly remarkable. It is a fully documented example whose owner treasured the car for over 51 years, after having purchased it at Continental Cars in Florissant, Missouri, in June of 1967. With its 51-year-long owner being a true Austin Healey aficionado and club member, this big Healey received proper servicing and attending to. The car never fell derelict and was always properly cared for and exercised. Today, she remains totally original, save for a cosmetic refreshing a few years ago. The car's chrome was redone, the interior carpet, panels, and seating surfaces were replaced with the correct materials, the top bows were repainted, the top was replaced, the wire wheels were redone, and the car received a very high quality repaint in its original Old English white over eye-catching bronze coves. With the work of restoring and replating rather than replacing, the car has a truly original 1966 feel, retaining its original instruments, bakelite knobs, steering wheel, chrome, engine compartment, and so on. The best of both worlds in our opinion. Drive-wise, the car is simply excellent. She makes great power, sounds fabulous, and handles as designed. This then, presents an opportunity to acquire one of the most original BJ8's currently on the market for a very fair price.
