For Sale: 1960 Austin-Healey 3000 in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars Houston is excited to offer this gorgeous 1960 Austin Healey 3000 Mark I BN7. This car is the third Healey 3000 that its current owner has had, and he gave it the royal treatment during the restoration. Having previously owned 2 of the tri-carb two seaters, he enjoyed them so much that he had this one converted to a tri-carb setup during the restoration. In his words, "since I am not a mechanic, all of the work was professionally done", and indeed, there is a lot that has been done to get this car into the condition it's in now. Having purchased it in 2012, he had the restoration commissioned in 2013, and it was completed in 2019. If it could be rebuilt, it was. If it couldn't be rebuilt, it was replaced. The car has a new Jule frame, which provides better rigidity than the original Healey frame, thus helping ensure this Healey has a long future ahead of it. All panels have been completely redone and repainted; chrome surfaces are freshly done, the engine, transmission (including overdrive), and differential have been rebuilt. The top is new, along with a new tonneau cover, new stainless-spoked wire wheels, side curtains, bumpers, tires, brakes, clutch, and shocks. There is also a new stainless exhaust system. This 1960 Healey 3000 looks almost as good as it did when it rolled off the line at Abington in June 1959; but it drives better than new, thanks to the triple carb upgrade and drivetrain freshening. The paint looks great, interior is just right and fresh, chrome sparkles, and it drives great! The car comes with a thick binder of restoration information, documentation, and Healey information, and quite a few receipts. It was restored lovingly by a true Healey aficionado, not someone who found it in a barn and is looking to flip it for a quick buck. This is a fine example of a great vintage British sportscar, having been researched by British Motor Industry Heritage Trust for its previous owner: the BMIHT certificate is dated 14 October 1992. This car has only been driven about 400 miles since the restoration was completed in 2019, so it's barely been broken in! You'll also find an original jack, grease gun, and Austin Healey wrenches in the trunk. The new side screens are there as well, and have never been installed on the car.
