History

Various models were produced from 1953 through 1971. They ranged from the BNI Austin-Healey 100 to the 3000, the Mk I and the Mk II as well as the little brother, the Austin-Healey Sprite.

This particular car model was produced from 1953 - 1961. It is reasonably rare as of the 13,650 produced during this period, 10,825 were the 2 + 2 passenger model BT7 Mk I while only 2,825 of the 2 seat BN7 Mk I's were produced. It was completely restored in 2010 by Alex Lopez of Paso Robles, California.
