1962 Austin-Healey 3000MKII
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.

Gorgeous 1962 Austin Healey 3000 MKII BT7 Roadster
New to our Pleasanton showroom is this outstanding 1962 Austin Healey 3000 MKII BT7 2+2 2 Door Convertible with green and white exterior paint, and incredible tan leather interior.

This highly desirable British classic is also equipped with power 4-wheel disc brakes, chrome wire wheels, a German cloth top and an aftermarket Kenwood sound system with Bluetooth and an integrated alarm system.
This 1962 Austin Healey 3000 MKII BT7 Convertible has also been fully restored back to factory perfection within the last 1,135 miles and it is in like-new condition throughout.
Fully Restored in $120k Frame-Off Restoration Effort
The current owner of this 1962 Austin Healey BT7 Convertible acquired it in 2004 and opted for a frame-off, nut & bolt restoration by British Car Specialists in Stockton, California. The project took six years total from start to completion and this highly desired classic received a new drivetrain, suspension, braking system, and more during that time period. The exterior paint has been treated with Ceramic Surface Protection which is 2-3 times more protective than the typical clear coats, making it one of the hardest paint coating on the market today. Chrome is excellent; wheels and accessories were also restored or replaced as was all of the interior surfaces and amenities. This example is very close to flawless in person as well since it’s been cared for at the highest possible levels.
Additionally, this 1962 Austin Healey 3000 MKII BT7 Convertible performs better than new on the open road with quick acceleration, pinpoint handling and simply a great overall feel. The total restoration effort exceeded $105,000 in parts and labor, and we can tell you that not a single corner was cut during that process. From the undercarriage to the engine bay, to the tonneau top, this example looks, feels and even smells like it recently left the factory showroom. There aren’t enough words to describe how incredible this example is- it’s ready for a private collection or a British car show circuit right away.
Excellent High-End Example Ready for the British Circuit
Overall, this 1962 Austin Healey 3000 MKII BT7 2+2 Roadster is one of the most pristine examples we’ve ever seen at this price point since virtually everything on this convertible is new. These types of opportunities do not surface very often so don’t wait around on this one- it will find a new home quickly at the current asking price.
