HISTORY OF THIS 1960 AUSTIN HEALEY MK1 3000 BT7: the first ‘big’ Healey was the 100 shown at the Earls Court shown in 1952 and then first produced at the 100/6 with bodies built with Jensen of West Bromwich with final assembly at the MG factory at Abington, Oxfordshire, built with a very solid chassis, has the cam and peg steering, solid rear axle and equipped with strong front discs, this has really a full, famous restoration a few years ago and then kept in very safe hands, see the note from the second owner who sold this to Kurt Tanner (LINK) for his famous restoration that is completed with lots of documentation…now updated and ready for Spring 2019 shows, see the listing of all the ‘numbers’ on this famous Healey to confirm the authenticity and fine history (LINK), clean and solid underchassis (LINK),

Transmission/engine: this has the correct 4-speed transmission with working overdrive, also the very important statement of the matching numbers engine (SEE LINK) of the proper and rebuilt 2912cc or 177.7cid, 3.125” bore with 3.50” long stroke giving 124 horsepower and a strong 150 lbs of torque, solid lifters that work great, rebuilt dual HD6 SU’s, correct air cleaners, after the build, this was in a collection of a friend of Fraser Dante, when offered for sale in Spring 2019, a full professional tune and updating was completed by a Senior British tech, fresh Champion N12YC spark plugs just installed, this engine really full new oil and filter, then re-detail of the engine bay, it just purrs,

Note: since this has sat in a collection the last 2-3 years with only occasional driving, the original and dated very valuable radiator was fully checked by Fraser Dante, this unit was just pulled and sent to our top radiator specialist, it was completely taken apart and the upper and lower tanks were saved, the cooling fins and core are completely new, fully re-corded, new cooling fluids, all new proper hoses and clamps, this costing is about $600 all in, there are photos that show this work (LINK),

History of build/wheels and tires: there is a big file of restoration photos that come with the car for its history and value, for Spring 2019, the beautiful chrome wires have brand new and very expensive Michelin Defender 185/65/R15 88H radial blackwall tires just installed, these look very period but now the radial tires make this Healey drive better than new,
