This stunning Ice Blue over Cream Austin Healey 3000 MKII was built on the 19th April 1963 and despatched on the 26th April to a New York dealership. PTU 426B was supplied new as a LHD North American Export car with white wall tyres, heater, miles per hour speedo, laminated windscreen, overdrive, adjustable steering column and tonneau cover. We don't know any early history but paperwork confirms the Healey was sold to a Jeweller in Fulton, Missouri in April 1997 who kept the car for nineteen years. By 2015, the long term US owner decided to sell the car in need of restoration and it was exported out of the Port of Houston and arrived in the UK.
During 2015 major restoration began with a full body strip down to a rolling shell. The body was professionally restored and painted body colour underneath. A full right hand drive conversion was carried out and the engine was checked, compressions and oil pressure found to be excellent and the gearbox stripped and rebuilt. The engine and gearbox were refitted along with many new ancillaries and the exterior treated to chrome including chrome wire wheels and a brand new hood and refurbished frame. The upholstery was treated to new carpets an
