Hello all! You are bidding on a 1960 Austin Healey 300 MK1 (BN7 model. nbsp;although it is a 4 seater variant). Photos are prior to damage.
Here is the story - 
This car is my Fathers. He purchased this car in Hong Kong where we lived at the time up until 2012. we enjoyed the car thoroughly and whilst my Father had it. he didn't spare anything on it.  Purchasing any spares from UK reputable dealers and working with British car specialist mechanics. He restored it to show condition. using it regularly to attend shows and was heavily involved in the classics car scene for over a decade.  The car was bought from someone who had imported it to Hong Kong from South Africa- before then it was based in the UK.  
Fast forward to 2012. whilst the car was in a garage for some work. including some engine work the garage caught fire - this is why the car is in this state it is.  The main engine at this point was out of the car. in another garage. so did not suffer any damage from the fire. It was stored for a year. I convinced my Father to ship the Healey back. along with all the documentation (DATING CERTIFICATE. FACTORY RECORDS. SHIPPING DOCUMENTATION. FRAME BADGES/PLATES. SERVICE RECEIPTS. MODEL DESCRIPTIONS. PHOTOS OF HISTORY. CREDENTIALS. HONG KONG LOG BOOKS. )  extra parts and engine to the UK. It is now garaged and stored in Brighton. BN3 where it is to be collected from and we are living. As it was shipped in various parts and with my fathers possessions we don't have any specific documentation for shipping.
The car details - Noted as a BN7 model variant. although this is a 4-seater version with right hand drive. Overall the car needs work to straighten out the panels where it has been knocked and bent from storage and shipping. This is full restoration. Body panels will need to be replaced due to corroding and damage. Wiring harness. nbsp;cables etc. everything will need to be addressed. Although. there is essential a running engine.  Transmission is not all complete. I have attached as many photos as I can to show the extent of damage to the car. Viewing is recommended if you can and the car will need a trailer to collect it.
Other parts that have been found are windscreen brackets. full hood frame rear bumpers.  
This car is not a straight restoration and will require a multitude of parts and time. although with some of the best parts suppliers in the UK for these great cars. I'm sure that with enough time. love and energy this car could be back on the road where is started back in 1960. I know I sure wish I could take on the project. but with lack of funds. illness in the family and lack of space it just won't be possible. The worst of all about this story is that my Dad didn't have any insurance. :(
Please contact us if you have any questions. phone or email.
Thanks. cott and Fraser
