With "just 355 built, it [the 1962 BN7] is the rarest production Austin-Healey, and the last strictly two-seater." - Austin-Healey Club USA
This very rare car has received a complete ground up, nut and bolt rotisserie restoration, preformed by Austin Healey expert Ray Kennett, with drive train rebuilt and restored by noted British vintage race car mechanic Peter Genovese. This car was recently purchased from its last owner who has had it for the last 26 years before undergoing a restoration which took over 1000 hours of shop time. All components have been completely rebuilt or replaced including all of the original hardware which has been cleaned and re-cad plated. The paint is an exact match of the "Old English White" which was used by the factory on this car and was shot with Spies Hecker acrylic urethane in a down-draft bake oven booth.
This car is one of 355 documented BN7 tri-carb, two-seats built, with only 132 cars reaching the US, making it the second rarest Austin Healey ever built, (there were only 55 Austin Healey 100s's built). This car is in perfect condition inside and out, and is as good or better than the day it left the factory. As a testament to this, is its performance in the two car shows that it has been entered in. It has received best in class in each show, and won best in show in the North-East Regional AACA event.
