This example was beautifully restored in 1999 and it still shows very well with its paint, chrome, stainless, interior and black soft-top. The 1963 model year was the first year for curved windshields and roll-up side glass on all Healeys. This is one of 6,113 BJ7 2+2s made in 1963. Dressed in Signal Red, the car's paint and trim are all in overall excellent condition. The body is straight, the engine bay is extremely tidy and the cargo area is in very good order and include a spare tire and extra wire wheel. The chrome, wraparound bumpers look great and fit tightly to the body. The car has a new battery and was recently serviced. There's a rear-mounted luggage rack for extra storage on those three-day weekend getaways or day trips. This roadster rolls on Nexen radials, size 165/80R15 at every corner and every tire is mounted to a 60-spoke wire wheel. The wheels are in excellent order while the tires are in very good condition. Under the hood is a 2.9L OHV six-cylinder engine with twin SU HS6 carburetors. The motor is linked to a four-speed manual transmission with overdrive for third and fourth gears and 3.91:1 rear end. There's also an aluminum radiator to keep it running cool and stainless-steel exhausts for great sound and durability. The car has a newer battery and underwent a recent service. Inside, there are black leather seats with red piping that are in great shape. The complementing black carpet is in similar shape. A three-spoke steering wheel faces the driver while the inner door panels and instrument panel are in very good order. The floor-mounted shift lever has an oaken shift knob and completes the interior. The 3000 sports convertible Mark II was launched at the end of August 1962. It was a true convertible with almost saloon car comfort, a new wrap-around windscreen, wind-up side windows, swiveling quarter lights and a quick-action folding roof. Ninety-one-point five percent of all 1963 Austin Healey 3000 cars were exported mostly to North America. If you're a classic convertible collector, this Austin-Healey may just fit the bill. Stop by MotoeXotica Classic Cars today to check it out for yourself. Competition to this Austin-Healey in 1963 included Alfa Romeo's 2600 Spider, Mercedes-Benz's 220 SE Cabriolet and Porsche's 356 B/2000 GS Carrera 2 Cabriolet.
