Nicely presented, this beautiful Ice Blue 62 BT7 2+2 features a complete professional restoration executed by Southern California marque specialist, Kurt Tanner. Completed in 2002-2003 and subsequently purchased from the restorer at the prestigious Pebble Beach auction events. Since that time it has been enjoyed very few miles, properly respected and always protected indoors...

According to representation at time of purchase, the restoration began as a "highly original, rust-free, correct numbers matching car, it was a prime candidate for a concours restoration. The Healey received a no-expense-spared exhaustive restoration that began by completely disassembling the car and stripping the body to bare metal", see complete restoration description below...    

The exterior body features a professional Dupont Chroma-system basecoat/clearcoat "Ice Blue" finish while the interior is fitted in correct matching "Navy Blue" leather seating surfaces and correct Wilton wool carpet. Other items included during the restoration were new panel kit, seat belts, Armacord trunk kit, spare tire, new navy blue Everflex soft top and side curtains w/bag...

As a complete body off restoration, the chassis was also stripped, prepped and finished in catalyzed polyurethane. All power train components were rebuilt or replaced with correct parts including carburetors, new wiring, generator, starter, distributor, cooling system, new radiator, pistons, bearings, cylinder head, reground crankshaft, upgraded rear seal kit, gaskets, 3 piece clutch, driveshaft and rebuild of 4 speed transmission/overdrive. The engine compartment was correctly detailed to original specifications with factory paint finishes, decals and stickers...


Complete with correct triple-carb configuration, 4-speed manual gearbox w/overdrive, adjustable steering wheel, factory heater, 60 spoke stainless steel wheels, soft canvas roof w/side curtains.
