History

Only 355 two-seater BN7s were produced during their brief run from early-1961 to mid-1962. These BN7s featured a new, more powerful 3-SU-carb engine mated to a 4-speed transmission with overdrive.  As noted in BMI Heritage Trust Certificate, on 12 October 1961, this BN7 was shipped to A. Brüggemann und Co. G.M.B.H. in Düsseldorf, Germany, making this one of just five BN7s that were non-U.S. bound exports (316 were exported to the United States). It was later transported to the U.S. where its ownership is traced.

Condition

Restored by Austin Healey expert, Tom Kovacs of Fourintune (Cedarburg, Wisc.) from 2004 to 2006. Kovacs and team performed a bare shell, rotisserie restoration to the highest level, including all wiring, full suspension, drive train, engine, transmission, rear axle, interior and more. Featured in its original colors of Colorado Red and black leather interior, this BN7 had limited use after 2006. Presently in top condition having undergone a major service in May 2018 to include all new fluids, brake inspection, carburetor rebuild, fuel tank flush and more totaling $6,000. It has an excellent file of restoration receipts, detailed photos and Heritage Certificate. One of the finest examples of the rare BN7s one could find—ready to drive or show!

Of Note

The BN7 two-seater, three carburetor Healey 3000 was the last of the true roadsters – a two-seat roadster with small windscreen and no vent windows. When the top is down it is below the body line so one has a true roadster. Equipped with side curtains and a low bow top for when the top is up. This was the last of the true lightweight roadsters.  It had the best appearance and power to weight configuration with the 3-liter 6-cylinder 3 carburetor engine. The later Healeys were larger and heavier with 2+2 seating, bulky convertible tops and roll-up windows. They were a more luxurious touring cabriolet. This is a true roadster.
