Available in 2-seater form (BN7) and 4-seater guise (BT7). the car offered buyers a sweet batch of optional extras like wire wheels. overdrive transmission. laminated windshield. heater. adjustable steering column. detachable hardtop and two-tone paint to complement the standard features like a 3000cc inline 6-cylinder engine with twin SU carburetors and Girling front disc brakes. A popular car. 13. 50 MkIs were built. 10. 25 of them being BT7s. demonstrating the interest in a little extra space by many customers. Easy to drive and enjoyable. the 3000 Austin-Healey gave drivers a sporting experience without too much challenge. making them perfect daily drivers. These cars easily elicit images of sprinting along lonely. two-lane stretches of scenic roads. top down for destinations and adventures unknown.
