Car description

A National Austin-Healey Conclave Concours Gold Winner, this 1963 Austin-Healey 3000MKII BJ7 presents stunningly in Ivory White with chrome knock-off wire wheels mounted on radial tires. Appointed in a contrasting black interior featuring white piping on front and rear seats, this machine has a matching black convertible top, tonneau cover and boot cover. A wood-rimmed Darrington steering wheel completes the 2+2 cabin of this vintage classic. The 1963 model year was a pivotal one for Austin-Healey. The new 3000MKII became a far more sophisticated car shedding it prior roadster person for that for a sports-touring convertible that now featured a newly designed windshield with wind wings, a quick-action folding roof wind-up side windows. Now there was a Austin-Healey that had the creature comforts necessary for long-distance touring. This stood in sharp contrast to that of the early Healey 3000s, which were spartan roadsters with minimal weather protection, as evidenced by their rudimentary plastic folding top on a demountable frame and detachable Perspex plastic side curtains. The 3000 models were always coveted sports cars that distinguished themselves from their 4-cylinder British rivals with a robust and large 2.9L inline 6-cylinder engine.The popularity of the 3000 has remained constant for five major reason; its front disc brakes provide exemplary stopping power; and its overdrive transmission provides effortless cruising at freeway speeds. A total of 6,113 Austin-Healey 3000MKIIs were producedin 1963, and this pristine example is a rare find. The car includes its original owners book, factory workshop manual and factory-issued knock-off hammer. The 3000 model really is a timeless classic that ultimately defines itself as one of the most beautiful British roadsters ever created.
