You are viewing my beautifully restored 1962 Austin Healey 3000. Mark II. BN7 Tricarb.  The Mark ll car was produced for the 1962 Model year with the distintive 3 SU carbs and the center shift transmission.  This car was one of the 327 BN-7. Tri carb. two seaters produced.  It is a beautiful car which was the subject of a ground up. nut and bolt restoration in my shop. British Motor Corportion of Philadelphia. PA.  We are a Austin Healey Specialist having restored over 400 Austin Healey since 1988. This is my personal car.  
This car was completely restored which I will descibe in brief.  
BODY: Body disassembled and media blasted to bare metal. Any rust removed and proper patch panels installed using a butt joint method of refabrication. Panels re-fit. and refinished using high solid. base coat clear coat Urethane color and clears.  Hand rubbed finish to very high standards.  
CHASSIS: Chassis sand blasted to bare metal. Measurements checked and adjusted to corrct dimensions.  Any rust removed and panels replaced with correct 30% thicker floors. sills. and outriggers.  Chassis refinished using a high solid. Urethane. base coat clear coat product. Refinishing to very high standards.    SUSPENSION: Suspension disassembled. rebuilt and recoated. Shocks rebuilt. springs replaced. all bushings new. Refinish using Industrial Epoxy Urethane to very high standards.  
ENGINE: Was rebuilt to fast BJ8 street standards using custom pistons. 30 over. Piper cam shaft. no lead safe cylinder head conversion with bigger valves and stronger springs. Engine line bored. balanced. decked and plained. New hardened domed lifters. lightened and balanced flywheel. rear main seal option. nbsp;performance enhancements hidden in motor to make it more drivable. Engine was Dyno run in prior to installation and performance tuned on a Dyno and performed at around 198 HP. The harmonic balancer was rebuilt. The oil pump. water pump. alloy oil pan were replaced.  
CARBS: Carbs were rebuilt and performance tuned to accommodate the additional horsepower.  
TRANSMISSION: We have the original four speed overdrive transmission which has been rebuilt and will be supplied with the car.  For drivability we have installed the Healey five speed option which is a pleasure to drive.  This is a bolt in conversion complete with a performance clutch. We will be happy to reinstall the original transmission if desired by the buyer.
FUEL TANK: Fuel system has been replaced with a new correct fuel tank. fuel lines. sending unit and fuel pump.  
GAUGES:  Original rebuilt gauges by Nisonger Instruments. Speedo reset to zero at time of rebuliding.
INTERIOR: I selected to install a complete high quality leather interior and Wilton 1 carpets produced by Automat of Hicksville. NY.  The leather is a extremely high quality hide with nice graining. The carpet is slightly darker and provide a nice contrast.  Most leather interiors are produced with leather seating area only with the balance of the seats. door panels and dash top produced in matching vinyl.  This interior is all leather and an option we offer at a $6. 00 upgrade on our standard restoration with the Wilton carpets.  The seat frames. seat backs. and foams are all new.  The interior has a insulation produced by Koolmat which is under the carpets.  
TOP:  The top and tonneau is a Mohair top produced for us by AH Spares of England. Side curtains are new.  
EXHAUST: The exhaust is a new stainless steel system true to the original design of the BN7 exhaust. The difference is the bore is larger to allow for the extra performance we hid in the motor. It is a very throaty exhaust true to the tone of a Healey and the most popular upgrade selected by our clients for their Healey's.  
ELECTRICAL: Wiring harness is new and correct. generator is rebuilt. all lights are new. starter is new high torque. original starter will be provided with the car in a box.  
FINISH: The base coat clear coat Urethane paint has been hand blocked and polished. The finish is glass like and highly durable. The exterior colors are Black and Colorado Red. This is not the original color of the car at the time of delivery. but a or color combination available previously from Healey.  
HERITAGE CERTIFICATE :  Heritage certificate will be delivered with the car.   
IGNITION: The ignition was upgraded for performance to the Mallory dual point distributor. The original ( rebuilt ) Lucas distributor will be provided with the car in a box.  
COOLING SYSTEM:  The original radiator was re-cored using a double density core. It appears original but has dramatically improved capacity. The original four blade cooling fan has been replaced with a correct BMC tropical six bladed fan.  Living in a hot climate I installed an electric push cooling fan on the front of my radiator.  It is easily removed if desired.  
WHEELS: The car has four Dayton 72 spoke wire wheels with Vrederstein 185/70 HR 15 tires. The wheels were balanced by Allen Hendrix of Hendrix wire wheels. We also balanced the rear drums to eliminate any possible high speed vibrations.  The car has no vibrations caused by wheels. drums or suspension. At high speeds the car is dead smooth.
CHROME: Chrome has been either replaced or replated with new triple plated chrome.       STEERING WHEEL: Moto Lita wood and alloy steering wheel. Original wheel available and can be reinstalled at no charge to buyer.  
TRUNK CANDY: Shelly Jack and Tool Roll in trunk.
