Offered for sale, from KURT TANNER MOTORCARS, is this fairly original and running BJ-8 Convertible. This car was recently purchased from it’s long term second owner in Illinois who acquired the car in 1975, when it was only 9 years old. He confirmed the car’s mileage to be it’s original. The car started life in the attractive color scheme of Olde English White with red trim.
The body on this car looks very decent and straight. Early in it’s life the front shroud was replaced with little to no harm to the inner chassis. It was a professional job with very good panel fit and gapping. The outer body panels all look very solid and the shrouds look excellent. Paintwork is older and has faded a bit by now, but does have a genuine old look to it. The car’s brightwork is and windshield is original. At some point, a custom set of horizontal grille teeth were made to replace the car’s vertical aluminum set, which is included.
The car’s interior trim looks very original and untouched. The front seats were upholstered in red leather and haven’t faired as well as the rest of the trim in it’s original Ambla vinyl material. The top needs replacing. Carpets have been changed over the years. The dashboard is very complete and original.
Mechanically, the car’s original engine runs well with good oil pressure and no smoke. We have just added a new fuel pump, fuel tank, battery and have cleaned/serviced the carburetors. The car could drive with fresh brake/clutch hydraulics. The tires are old. Underneath, everything looks pretty original and there are some minor repairs needed.
Overall, a very straight and original two-owner 51,000-mile BJ-8 still retaining it’s title from 1975 ! This desirable Big Healey runs well and could be driving back on the road with little work, or could be a good basis for a full restoration.
