This beautiful North American Export Austin-Healey BJ8 has lead a charmed life. The 1967 models are considered by many as the pinnacle of the big Healeys, with roll up windows, a more luxurious cockpit, and all of the mechanical refinements over the years. #41750 was purchased by the current owner in 1983 with just 36,300 miles, and in 1999, was treated to a full restoration by noted marque authorities Fourintune Garage. Tom Kovacs reports that there were no floor pan or door jamb repairs required, but a complete mechanical freshening was in order. It is a complete numbers matching car with all original panels, and is restored accurately in British Racing Green with black interior.
Today, the car has 46,340 miles, and has travelled just 3,000 miles in the ten years since restoration. The 3 items changed by the owner can all easily be brought back to stock – a “Texas Cooler”shrouded fan, a stainless exhaust system, and chromed 72 spoke wire wheels – all for drivability. It’s lived in a heated garage, is immaculately clean throughout, and offers a known history, with complete Heritage Trust documentation and extensive restoration documents. All tools, accessories, and literature is included with no surprises.
