Registration: 972 UYG Chassis Number: HBT712594 Engine Number: 29D-RU-H/22475 Number of cylinders: 6 CC: 2998 Year of Manufacture: 1960 RHD/LHD: Right Hand Drive
This car, owned by ultra successful businessman and star of "Dragons Den" - Mr. Theo Paphitis, is a stunning Austin-Healey 3000 MkI rally replica that was restored during 2013/14 and bought by him at the Goodwood Revival Sale in September 2014. It retains much of the 1960 'Works' spec, including the triple SU carburettors on an engine built by Richard Parker Race Engines Ltd. which incorporates a Stage 1 gas-flowed cylinder head; bronze valve guides and unleaded inserts, a tubular exhaust manifold, a rally high lift camshaft, a 9.7:1 compression ratio, forged pistons, a high capacity oil pump, an harmonic crankshaft damper, and an alloy sump for better cooling and enhanced cylinder block stiffness. All this has created an engine giving 185BHP which is connected to a rebuilt and highly specified gearbox and differential. Jig built, the chassis has been fully seam-welded, fully strengthened and bare-metal resprayed, whilst the chassis box sections have also been wax protected. The running gear includes a new improved steering box, uprated competition front disc and rear drum brakes, uprated competition shock absorbers, heavy-duty front stub axles and adjustable telescopic rear shock absorbers with Vredestein tyres sitting on 72-spoke, painted wire wheels. Inside there has been no expense spared either with a black crackle-painted dashboard, new instruments, a long, direct-action gear lever, and finally a 'Works" spec hard top with ventilation scoop. The wiring is all new as are various key electrical components, the front wings feature factory vents, there is a twin-spares boot lid, and a custom made stainless steel side-exit exhaust. All in all a truly stunning car in outstanding condition that is ideal for fast road use, tours or road rallying.
