1960 Austin Healey 3000 BT7 - Private Seller and owned since 1976.   Description of repairs listed in detail below (all repairs done within last 2. 00 miles).  

This car has been meticulously maintained and owned by the same family (father and son) for the past 38 years.   It is a phenomenal driver with new paint done in the late 1980's (work not shown in receipts below).   The motor has been rebuilt (also not shown in receipts below) at the same time.   There are less than 4. 00 miles on the car since repaint and engine rebuild.   Significant and major maintenance always performed. by the best tradesmen in the hobby. with no expense spared.   This car is ready now. with complete fluids changed. to drive from the East Coast to the West Coast.   Gas is on you.

This vehicle was originally a non-overdrive car with the side-shift transmission.   It has a professionally installed. and totally rebuilt. BJ8 transmission and overdrive.   The non-overdrive rear-end is in the car so with that gearing + the overdrive this vehicle cruises very competently at modern high speeds.   The original side-shift transmission is included. in the auction. in a high quality custom crate.   Also included in the auction are tonneau cover. soft top. and car cover.

It's hard to sell this car. it has memories and good times attached to it that will never be forgotten. and it has been cared for like a true family heirloom.   You won't  be disappointed in this car. you can come drive it or have it inspected prior to bidding. and you can ask any question you'd like.   Total transparency. I really want this car to go to a new owner that's committed to taking care of it with long term ownership planned.   This car deserves that.

Receipts below (except for those performed by my father).   Thank you for your interest. Regards. Matt.

On Mar-09-14 at 14:14:07 PDT. seller added the following information:

*4. 00 miles piece refers to paint and engine rebuild.   Also not included in description is a new stainless exhaust added by my father (who did not keep receipts like me) in the late 1980's.   Very few miles since all of his (and my) work was performed.
