1964 Austin Healey BJ8 Roadster for sale. Motorcar Classics is proud to present this outstanding 1964 Austin Healey BJ8 Roadster finished in Golden Beige Metallic with Red leather interior and Black convertible top.

VIN# HBJ8L/29468 is a desirable Mk III 4-seat roadster that has a history including two known restorations, the most recent of which was completed in June 2016. Both restorations encompassed the body, chassis, drivetrain, suspension, electrical system, hydraulics, interior, glass, and trim. The car is in concours condition today, among the best of BJ8 we have ever seen, as a result of its last owner being one who would not accept less than perfection.

The British Motor Industry Heritage Certificate reveals that this car was originally finished in Dark British Racing Green with black trim and a black top. It was built and dispatched to the US in October 1964 equipped with wire wheels, a heater, an adjustable steering column, and a 4-speed manual transmission with overdrive.

Our client purchased this Austin Healey BJ8 on December 3, 2007 from well-known and respected Austin Healey restorer, Kurt Tanner. It was represented as needing a full restoration which the client intended to do himself. The gentleman did a complete tear down and, after much consideration, decided that the scope of work was beyond his capability, and the car merited a professional restoration. In 2012 the car was sent to Steve Tanner, Kurts father, in California, for restoration.

When the car was returned the owner was concerned that the work was less that the perfect result intended. He brought the car to Knut Holzer at British Restoration Corporation, another well-respected Healey expert and restorer, for evaluation. British Restoration Corporation (BRC) of Philadelphia, PA was commissioned to bring the car to the concours condition you see in our photos.

At BRC there were a half a dozen Healeys under various states of restoration and they are known for having restored hundreds of Austin Healeys. With one ground-up restoration under its belt, BRC was commissioned to perform a further partial restoration which involved complete disassembly of the car. While many of the parts were either new or properly restored, BRC focused on correcting the flaws, which included repainting to BRCs highest standards. Even though the engine was rebuilt during the initial restoration, BRC said it was not performing to standards, and it was completely rebuilt again.

While Golden Beige Metallic is not the original color, this is the commemorative color that was used on the last 553 Austin Healey BJ8s built in the final years of production. It is a striking color that looks just right with the red leather interior. The wood, the chrome, the leather, and all the little details that make a BJ8 such a jewel of a car, are all perfect.

So after twelve years and two restorations, this 1964 Austin Healey BJ8 is truly in showroom condition or better. Over $150,000 has been in this iconic Healey BJ8 and it is ready for a new owners immediate concours showing or touring pleasure.
