1960 Austin-Healey 3000
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
A tune-up and an oil change were performed in 2021. This 3000 BT7 Mk I is now offered in California with a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate, service records, and transferable New York State registration in the name of the sellers LLC.
The car underwent a color change to its present dark blue and white paint scheme. Brightwork includes headlight bezels, door-mounted side mirrors, and front and rear bumpers with bumperettes. Removable side curtains and a blue soft top and tonneau cover are included in the sale. The seller notes the presence of a crack on the hood near the intake, and up-close photos can be seen in the gallery below.
Polished 15 wire wheels with knock-off hubs are mounted with 195/65 Michelin blackwall tires, and a matching spare is housed in the trunk. Braking is provided by discs up front and drums in the rear.
The interior features 2+2 seating reupholstered in blue vinyl with white piping. Lap belts are fitted for the front occupants.
A wood-rimmed three-spoke steering wheel frames Smiths instrumentation that includes a 120-mph speedometer, a tachometer, and auxiliary gauges. The five-digit odometer shows 97k miles, and total mileage is unknown.
The car left the factory with a 2,912cc C-series inline-six. The cylinders were re-bored under previous ownership to a capacity of 3,000cc and the engine was fitted with dual SU AUC 7081 carburetors along with replacement wiring and an electric cooling fan. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission with overdrive. The radiator is said to have been refurbished with the correct fan guard and a fitted shroud. A tune-up and an oil change was performed in 2021.
The British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate lists factory colors and identification numbers as well as build dates of December 17-21, 1959. A data tag shown in the gallery matches chassis number H-BT7-L/6295.
The car does not have a title, as it is registered in a state that does not issue titles for a vehicle of its age. It is being sold on its registration.
