The Model: While the history of the Austin-Healey 3000 family of sports cars had a number of sweet performing vehicles, the last true sports roadster to come from the Warwick shops was the BN7. It truly captures the feeling of what a sports car should be, an open roadster, room for just two, and outstanding performance. Not only did Healey take a rather tame and dependable pedestrian type engine and turn it into a force unto itself, he also created a beautiful and timeless design that seems to have reached its zenith with the BN7. Only 355 of these cars were built for worldwide distribution and today it is estimated that less than half have survived. Offering lightning quick response, such as 0-to-60 mph in about 9.2 seconds, advanced suspension and steering characteristics, and triple carburetion, these are the quintessential sports roadsters. Verifying the heritage of this BN7 is the BMI Heritage Trust Certificate, a proof of its pedigree.


The Car: Our consignor, who has owned a number of Healeys over the years, says this is the best driving example he has ever driven, PERIOD! Treated to a full restoration, the car has under 500 miles since the work was completed. With all three of the SU carbs working in perfect unison, this BN7 delivers that neck-snapping power promised when it was new. Finished in ivory, the interior is done in red with ivory piping and looks so inviting you will just want to jump in. The chrome wire wheels sparkle in the daylight and at night, a pair of Lucas road lights illuminate the way before you. Under the hood appears to be much nicer than when new, with attention to perfection being the order of the day. All body panels are laser straight with proper gaps, and the bottom of this car is cleaned and detailed to the nth degree. You will want to get behind that big wood-rimmed steering wheel and enjoy the road with this BN7, but we do suggest that maybe entering it in a few shows first and filling up a shelf or two with trophies would be more fitting for this outstanding example.
