Austin Healey 3000 Mk1 1959 BT7

Ground Up Restoration

Built between 14th July – 10th August 1959 at the Abington Factory for the North American market & originally shipped to a New York dealer.

Original & correct matching engine, chassis & body numbers.

Ground up restoration by experienced & knowledgeable individuals 

This car has recently been entirely dismantled & stripped down to the very last nut & bolt. In order to keep the car as original as possible, where feasible, existing parts have been painfully restored & repaired. Existing parts that could not be salvaged & brought in line with our high standards have been replaced sympathetically.

In 1959 the original car left the Abington factory in Black with black hood & Red trim. The car has now been restored in the beautiful & iconic metallic Healey Blue over Ivory white, with classic Healey blue quality trim.

The engine has also been fully dismantled, with the stripped head, block & parts being thoroughly cleaned via ultrasonic & dipping. Every part has then been checked, crack tested as necessary, with suspect parts replaced before re-assembling. As you would expect, to maintain high standards, brand new pistons, piston rings & bearings have been fitted. The cylinder re-bored, crankshaft re-ground and along with other work carried out, the engine can now be considered to have zero mileage.

The interior upholstery has been professionally re-trimmed to a very high standard using high quality leather & carpet ensuring that the material & colours used are as close as possible to the original ones used at the time of production.

Typically, with the Big Healey’s renowned Sports Pedigree, many owners were motoring enthusiasts & keen to make improvements to their cars, often looking to enhance performance or personalise their pride & joy. This car is no exception & during the last 60 years past owners have made some upgrades. During the rebuild, these upgrades were considered, & as these upgrades were carried out many years ago & with original Austin Healey parts, we have decided to maintain the car’s personalised originality. Indeed the upgrades are logical having benefitted the performance & handling of the car as follows:

Original upgrades fitted to the car before restoration

Carburettors: Upgraded to the larger 2” throat HD8 replacing the smaller 1 ¾ throat HD6 would have been fitted originally.

Front Brake Calipers: Upgraded to a larger caliper together with larger brake pad.

Rev Counter: Upgraded from cable to electronic.

Front wishbones: upgraded

Front anti-roll bar: Upgraded

Top Trunnions: Upgraded

Gearbox: Later Mk2’s & all Mk3’s were upgraded to a more manageable central positioned gear lever. This upgraded central lever gearbox has been added to this car.

Rear axle: In line with the upgraded gearbox the rear axle/differential has also been upgrade
