Car description

Offered for sale, from KURT TANNER MOTORCARS, is this complete BT-7 Roadster. This car was just purchased from it's long term owner in Georgia who had retirement plans to restore it. The car is pretty complete for restoration. The chassis mainrails are very solid front to back, making it a good restoration candidate.The bodywork on this car is in average condition for a project car. The rear shroud and fenders are quite decent, the front fenders and front shroud are on the rough side but are restorable and re-usable. The doors are poor, but a much nicer original pair are provided for replacement. The trunk lid need the bottom lip repaired. The hood is very nice.The car's interior needs restoration but appears complete with the original fronyt and rear seats, instruments, dashboard, aluminum cockpit railings, etc.The car's underchassis is surprisingly very solid with good solid mainrails front to back, good cross-x. There was a previous frame repair made to the RH front suspension area. The car is fitted with some amateur replacement floors. It's a typical restoration car that needs all the usual Healey rust repair spots such as inner and outer rockers, floors and trunk floor, dogleg repair, fender bottoms, etc. but has great mainrails to start with.The car's engine compartment appears very original, complete, and untouched. This car has stayed largely together it's whole life. The original "29D" prefixed engine still retains it's original factory light green paint, Lucas distributor cap, and correct carbs with even it's original air cleaners. The engine turns over nicely by hand and may even run with a little bit of work. The car has it's correct 4-speed with overdrive sideshift gearbox/ 3.9 rear axle. The steering box feels very smooth to turn.The car still retains all of it's original ID plates including Chassis VIN, body tag, and engine tag. There are some loose items included with car such as the previously mentioned doors, original bumper and overrider set, original "weathershields" sidecurtains with brackets, lights, a split top frame, blower motor, steering wheel trafficator.Overall, a desirable Austin Healey BT-7 3000 Roadster for restoration with a very modest purchase price.
