Austin-Healey's two-seater 3000 fired up the imagination of sports car enthusiasts around the world with victories in the most punishing events of the time. This is the model that Pat Moss, sister of Sir Stirling Moss, drove to an astounding overall victory in the brutal and legendary 1960 Liège-Rome-Liège Rally.

Likewise, the Morley brothers, Don and Earl, scored an outright victory in the 1960 Alpine Rally in a 3000. Another factory team car finished 2nd in class in the 1960 12 Hours of Sebring, where it was bested only by a Ferrari 250 GT California. This model is prized by collectors for its true roadster no-compromise two-seat design with window inserts instead of roll-ups. It is also cherished for its rareness, as only 2,825 of the 13,650 total 3000 Mark I production, just 20 percent, were two-seat models.

The stunning example shown here has benefited from an exhaustive full restoration just 300 miles ago. The exterior was painted with two-stage urethane black over ivory paint before being polished to a high-gloss finish. Inside, the Amblia-covered seats echo the exterior in black with ivory trim. The interior also sports new black wool carpets and a leather-covered dash, complete with rebuilt original gauges and a new steering wheel. The transmission and engine were rebuilt using all-new components and finished with a stainless-steel exhaust system. Comes with: side curtains, black tonneau cover, tool roll, brand new spare tire, and BMIHT Certificate.

Considered by many to be one of the handsomest Austin-Healeys ever built, and a pleasure to drive on the track or the open road, the 3000 Mk1 BN7 has always been well regarded in enthusiast circles as an excellent motor car in every right.
