A very rare and incredibly original example of this most desirable last-series BJ8 version. Its Heritage Certificate confirms its manufacture on 24th June 1966 and despatch to SIDA-Milan on 21st July. One of only 234 left-hand drive European specification examples delivered in 1966. It has covered only 70, 000 kilometres and only 5, 000 kilometres in my over twenty-five years of ownership. It has been carefully garaged for much of its life which explains its state of preservation. The car had only one owner prior to 1974 when it was bought by a family member. I am now the registered owner. All original chassis, panels and most of the interior. I have recently had the car bare-metal repainted in its original Healey Blue metallic finish and it retains its factory blue interior and Hood. Wooden dashboard recently re-furbished. I have a photographic record of the re-painting process which confirms the car's original and rust-free bodywork and chassis. The panel fits therefore remain to factory-correct standard. An unusual opportunity for an enthusiast and collector to acquire such a wonderful original example. The car can be viewed and test driven near Rome, Italy.
