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.
