Our car is a rare original RHD two seater BN7 of which only 69 cars made in 1959 from a total production of an estimated 157 cars made in RHD from a total of 2825 cars. Built in early November 1959, it was shipped as a CKD (Complete Knock Down) in component form and then assembled in South Africa. Registered in 1960, the Healey remained in South Africa until returned to the UK in 2001, where is was subsequently registered as CAS 181, prior being sold to a Healey enthusiast in Jersey, where it competed successfully in local Club hill climbs and events. On its last appearance it suffered front end damage to the nearside wing, which necessitated a fully jigged professional rebuild on behalf of the new owner who bought the car as a restoration project, and commenced with the front end rebuild, together with the restoration of many components, for which we have the invoiced detail. Due to personal reasons, the car is now for sale as a part completed project with the hard work having been completed, and which is available as it stands for the next owner to complete, or alternatively commission us on their behalf to complete the rebuilt. The car is supplied with all the body panels required, and in course of the work to date, care has been taken to use original parts where possible, with newly manufactured parts being used when original parts were not available.
A very complete car that has been used for touring and historic motor sport events. We have carried out the structural rebuild of the front end as part of a planned full restoration to the original specification. Whilst the front end is presently in yellow, it is proposed that the car be finished in Healey blue with cream side panels, as pictured in the example advertised. Further pictures on request.
Body sections have replaced as necessary, however after being in a hot climate, it has not been subject to the degree of dampness and corrosion we find in the British Isles. The car will be when completed have been fully restored to original specification as delivered in late 1959.
The original engine is in good original condition, we will provide the next owner the opportunity to decide on the state of tune, the engine comes with the original twin SU’s carburetors.
