CAR OF THE WEEK - DRIVING MALLORCA & CLASSIC CAR CLUB - 21/04/2016
AUSTIN HEALEY 3000 MK2
This week’s car was a simple choice, to be honest, given the number of people gathered around to admire it’s almost new condition. Austin Healeys have become very much sought-after by collectors and driving enthusiastsw orldwide, and this particular car must be amongst the most desirable on the market! That’s right – it’s currently for sale! And let me tell you why.
First registered in 1961, it is an Austin Healey 3000 MK2 BT7. With triple SU car burettors and overdrive gearbox, it is an original “matching number” example, with left hand drive, and a valuable Factory Heritage Certificate. Not only that, it has been uprated to Fast Road Specification, with upgraded brakes & suspension, sports exhaust, oversize tyres and a works hardtop.
Baffled by all that technical stuff? Let me put this simply. It’s the real deal! And having had only 3 owners from new, with only 29,000 miles on the clock, and with an unrepaired body, I challenge you to find a better example anywhere, let alone on our lovely island!
