This purposeful-looking Big Healey has been in its current ownership since 1973 and was treated to an engine overhaul and general restoration between 1989 and 1992. In more recent years it has served as a classic rally car, and to that end is equipped with: road rally camshaft, six-branch exhaust manifold, competition clutch, straight-cut gearbox with competition overdrive, limited slip differential, alloy sump and guard, Works hard top, roll hoop and Cibi£ auxiliary lights, and in this form competed on the 1997 Monte Carlo and 1999 Rally des Alpes events. More recently, '1735 ME' has benefited from new wings and dampers on the rear. It is finished in the attractive combination of White hard top over Light Metallic Blue bodywork, teamed with dark Blue interior trim. The vendor currently considers the bodywork, interior trim, straight-six engine and transmission to be in 'very good' order, and the paintwork to be of a 'good' standard, and is selling the Healey complete with green log book, large collection of tax discs and old MOTs, plus one valid into August of next year. The following are available by separate negotiation: hood, tonneau cover and bumpers. The 'Big' Healey enjoyed steady development, with the early four-cylinder cars giving way to the 100-Six in 1956, and the first of the 3000s in 1959. By now engine capacity had risen to 2912cc and power output to 124bhp - sufficient to grace the standard car with a 0-60mph time of 11.4 seconds and a top speed of 114 mph. There was the option of Laycock de Normanville overdrive, and braking had been improved by the adoption of discs at the front. There were two body options - a two-seater (BN7) or occasional four-seater (BT7). By the time of the MKII in 1961, a total of 2,825 BN7s and 10,825 BT7s had been produced. PLEASE NOTE: All estimates are subject to a buyer's premium of 15% incl. VAT (@ 20%)
