According to the British Motor Heritage Trust (BMHT), this 3000 Mk II BN7 was built on special order for the Donald Healey dealership in London and subsequently delivered to its frst owner in San Francisco on March 9, 1962.

In 2001, Tom and Randee Rocke, proprietors of Healey Lane in Riverside, California, discovered this rare Austin-Healey in Utah, where it had been kept in static storage for over 25 years.

After storing the BN7 project for approximately 10 years, Healey Lane performed a frame-of restoration that was only recently completed in spring 2014. After being stripped to bare metal, the bodywork was fnished in the eye-catching color combination of Gun Metal Gray with St. James Red coves. The two-seat cockpit features all-new red upholstery with matching wool carpets and a black soft top with a matching tonneau cover. Overall, the presentation is stunning and the restoration was performed to the highest standards. The car is now fresh for the concours circuit and ready for its next owner to enjoy.

The restoration process is thoroughly documented in photographs, and the car is ofered with the BMHT certifcate as well as documentation from Bill Bolton’s Tri-Carb Registry. In addition, the restorers at Healey Lane provide a one-year drive train warranty from the date of sale.

For the collector in search of a rare, attractive, and event-eligible British sports car, there is no need to look any further than this expertly restored Mk II BN7, the ultimate example of the beloved Austin-Healey 3000 line.
