1960 3000 mk1 BT-7. Excellent mostly unrestored all original car. Only one repaint 25 years ago in galsiruit signal red paint. Original color was Colorado red With red interior, the interior was changed during repaint with black leather/red piping . top is old amco brand old, rear window yellow with small crack. Top bows and side curtains good shape need cleaned and polished. All electrical and gauges work as the should.

 

Excellent body/ great panel gaps. Hardly any body filler anywhere. no accidents, only rust was in Dog legs and lower front fenders they were repaired when painted. Chrome and glass in nice condition.

 

Engine runs excellent with 65 psi oil pressure had to been rebuilt runs so good. Running 20/50 oil with zinc additive. I believe cylinder head has hardened valve seats so u can run unleaded fuel. The  overdrive/ transmission work great. Second gear synchro a little soft on fast down shifting driving car more may resolve , trans sounds great, no first gear howling or noises.

 

All fluids in car replaced, new aluminum fuel tank, carbs cleaned. New trunk/boot lining kit, Rebuilt generator and new voltage regulator. New wiring harness ,Valve cover gasket and spark plugs. New s.s.  braided oil pressure line from engine to gauge. Its still positive grounded battery. New sway bar rubber bushings and end links. New knock offs. I put 600 miles put on it last 4 months. Drive nice tracks straight, shocks/suspension good and tight, no noises or squeaks or rattles. Front brake calipers should be rebuilt just to be a safe driver, along with repacking front wheel bearings. All zerk fittings greased. Steering box leaked so I fill with john deer corn head grease, good cheap fix. Tires are old and have flat spots from sitting will need to be replaced asap. With new tire cars ready to drive safe and reliable. All lights, horn, heater, electrical etc.,,, work as it should.
