The log-book and Heritage certificate list the car as an Austin Healey 3000 Mk11 built 14th-18th November 1963 and despatched on the 22nd November 1963 to Stour Valley Motor Company Ltd of Stourbridge. The car is listed as the second last BJ7, a RH drive home market car originally Ivory White in colour with a black interior. When working on the car I did find evidence of underlying ivory white paint on re-painted panels in areas not accessible unless the work involved significant dismantling. In 2020 DVLA enquired about the chassis number on the MoT certificate as they noted the log book listing ( BJ7/25313A) was different from the chassis plate (BJ7/25313) (by 1 type-identification letter) I did provide pictures of other AH plates showing an extra letter, but this was ignored by the DVLA. What is so frustrating is that this detail difference has been the case for many years, certainly back to the 1980's on MoT certificates. I have kept the communications from DVLA of course and can only assume someone in Swansea was justifying their salary. The bigger question not asked by DVLA is why a 1963 car is listed as an 1968 car with a 1968 dated plate. I can only surmise that it was re-registered in 1968, 52 years ago, but as to why, I cannot find an answer. According to DVLA information the 2nd owner, bought the car in the early 1980s. I know that the engine was seriously revisited several times in its life, so the fact that the engine is some 3000 units 'older' than the car is not remarkable, especially as paperwork that came with the car shows that engine rebuild-parts purchased indicate more than one pretty catastrophic failure. 1986 was the year when a major refurbishment/rebuild was undertaken which involved altering the control panel from the BJ7 steel facia - predominately on the driver's side - to the walnut veneer / centre console facia of the later BJ8 Mk11.
