Ask most car guys whats on their bucket list and chances are good that an Austin Healey is in the mix. And for good reason; iconic good looks, big powerful six cylinder motors, and legendary road manners.
This 1961 3000 MKll BT7 four seat roadster is equipped with its original 3 carb 3.0 liter straight six and 4 speed overdrive transmission. 132 horsepower propelled this car to 60 mph in 10 seconds and to a top speed of 112 mph. Independent front suspension, quick steering and front disc brakes helped earn its reputation on both road and track.
A spacious and comfortable interior with full instrumentation, heating and easy up top make for a great touring car. The "Big Healey" is a crowd favorite at any car show and the ownership community is large and welcoming. Austin Healeys are more than just collector cars they are a lifestyle.
This example is not a concours winner by any stretch but it is a well sorted mechanically sound driver that presents extremely well. It starts up with no smoke or strange noises. It accelerates, steers and stops predictably and confidently. Under heavy foot the big six makes glorious sounds rowing deliberately through the gearbox.
Healeys have proven to be safe harbors, holding their values through good time and bad. Take care of this beautiful car, drive and enjoy it and if you ever have to sell it you are unlikely to ever lose money on it.
