Three Austin Healey projects


  • Dating from 1957, 1960 and 1962
  • All three cars completely stripped 
  • Numerous parts refurbished and ready to refit
  • A great many new parts, panels and repair sections are supplied
  • Certificates from the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust present for each
  • The 1960 car has had most of its welding and fabrication work completed 

The Appeal

You forge a special connection with a car you’ve restored yourself. You learn the ins and outs of how it goes together far better than anyone but those who designed and built it. So why not embark on not one, not two but three restoration projects of your own, with this collection of imported Austin Healeys?

Imported to the UK as mostly complete cars in need of restoration, these three Healeys have since been stripped and many of their components have been refurbished. The vendor attained heritage certification for each, so now all that’s left to do is carry on where they left off. 

The History and Paperwork

Chassis numbers:

1957: BN4-LO/34276
1960: H-BT7-L/6779
1962: H-BT17-L/18637

  • All three were imported from the United States approximately three years ago
  • Upon arrival, the cars were fully assembled and in need of restoration
  • All left-hand drive and exported to the US new
  • The vendor reports that they believe all the cars should be more or less complete
  • Certificates from the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust present for each
  • Besides the 1960 car, which is missing its engine, the other two cars are reportedly matching numbers
  • Collection of old US Titles present
  • Not UK registered

The Condition

  • All three cars have been completely stripped and are believed to be mostly complete
  • Numerous parts have been refurbished and are reportedly ready to refit
  • Two of the shells remain unrestored with some corrosion and damage in evidence
  • The vendor points out that most of the welding to the 1960 car (H-BT7-L/6779) has been completed already, with the remaining panel needed to complete it apparently present
  • All three originally fitted with wire wheels

The Mechanics 

  • The 1957 and 1962 Healeys (BN4-LO/34276 and H-BT17-L/18637) are said to be complete with their original engines which have also been disassembled
  • The 1960 car (H-BT7-L/6779) does not have an engine
  • The mechanicals are offered in untested condition
  • All three were originally fitted with overdrive


Here we have an exciting opportunity to get stuck into a trio of restoration projects. With a great deal of work already completed, giving the next owner a head start, we can’t wait to see these three Healeys back on the road once more.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
