Tired blue: 1964 Austin Healey 3000 BJ7 MKII


The paint of this BJ7 is tired like the rest of the car but, actually, this car is the typical “right candidate” for the operation. The seller says that this is a rust free car (all the photos posted in the auctions show a little or no rust) and that the engine doesn’t turn as no gasoline gets to the carburetors. This BJ7 was the “luxury” model back than, as it was the only A.H. which had descending side glasses (instead of the sliding ones).


The seller says also that this car has no dents and that the gaps are good: he says that this car needs a “minor restorations” but actually all we know that this car needs a ground-up restoration. Obviously, it’s always better to start form a good basis like this car.


Interiors are not abused and they could be entirely recovered. As the 99% of parts are easily retrievable on the market, the restoration is only a matter of money. Find it for sale here in Medina, OH, with bidding just over $11,000 and reserve not met.
