BJ8 Restoration: Part 5: The Engine

img_8232

Today we picked up our Healey 3000 engine from Mid-Island Engine and Machine in Duncan.

Scott and Chuck have a great facility and have proven extremely capable for this job.

They gave us a breif tour of the shop which had some pretty impressive machines.

For our Healey engine, Mid-Island balanced all the rotating masses, grinded the valves and fit new hardned valve seats.

SOLD: 1959 Austin Healey 3000 BT7

 

1959 Austin Healey 3000 BT7

-Rare Original RHD BT7

-Completed an extensive concours-level restoration to an original color combination, original finishes and details.

-Rare details such as the 100-6 non-adjustable wheel and kicked-up gear lever.

-Since most of the Healey production was for export, this UK-domestic marketĀ  3000 is quite rare.

-Certainly one of the best prepared BT7s
