According to the renown 'Automotive Information Clearinghouse' of La Mesa, California, certificate as of 2/24/1989 states that only 1,296 of these particular early Austin Healeys were left with obviously far less available now some 33 years later! These certified milestone cars are becoming thinner on the ground every year that passes and therefore will undoubtedly prove a very worthy investment to the astute collector.
Purchased from a long time southern California owner with original California license plates and obviously always garaged! The engine is smooth and responsive with the renown Healey rumble identifying the Healey straight six as much as a Ferrari's sound does it's V12! The 4 speed transmission with the highly desirable Overdrive option shifts smoothly through all the gears, including the reverse gear and the overdrive function works as it should which means it works through all the gears and not just as a fifth speed which is great for highway driving!
The car looks extremely impressive in striking 'Red over Olde English White' paint and the Black interior with Red piping is in exceptional condition also with original gold type gauges which are all in correct working order! The new black soft top is in great shape, both functionally and otherwise and the car boasts its side curtains and a full tonneau cover. The car had four new chrome wire knock off wheels with new tires and a spare aluminum wire wheel (not chrome) in its correctly mounted position in the trunk. As stated earlier, the engine is extremely strong and powerful and sounds absolutely magnificent - this is a rare opportunity to own a great daily driving BT-7 2+2 roadster - perfect for the Austin-Healey enthusiast or simply a perfect daily driver for any British sports car enthusiast or collector!
