First registered 4th May 1962, 330 DYO is an original home market UK car. Abingdon built 5096 of these BT7s throughout 1961/62, of which less than 1000 were sold in the UK, making it one of the rarest Austin Healey models.

Originally Healey blue, this model has the Tri-Carb engine, central gear change, plain dashboard, and side screens. It was ordered with a heater, wire wheels, overdrive and factory hardtop all of which were extras at the time.

This original UK car is matching numbers and supplied with a detailed history and receipts file. The original chassis, body and engine plates remain on the car. The car has never been fully rebuilt and maintains its 60s feel and patina.

First owner William Chilton of High Wycombe kept the car for 7 years and covered 12, 671 miles. Second owner registered the car in the name of his furniture company, Antocks Lairn and covered about 15,000 miles in his one year of ownership. The third owner, Oliver Chappele, his brother in law, kept the car 2 years and covered 1,500 miles. The current owner purchased the car from Oliver Chapelle on September 26th 1971 when it had covered just 29,557 miles. After using the car for 7 years, The owner stored the car for 28 years and started using it again in 2006. The Healey has now covered a genuine 52,000 miles only, supported by the following previous owner documents and MOT certificates.

The original engine was rebuilt 2 years ago by, race specialists, Classic and Modern Engines, Bracknell. A Dennis Welch alloy head, alloy sump with baffle plate, and backplate were fitted, together new oil and water pumps, reground camshaft with BJ8 profiles, with the head gas flowed and all components balanced before and during assembly. The radiator was re-cored and a Revotec electric fan fitted. New 1 ¾ SU carbs replace the standard 1 ½ inch, giving a 36% increase in volume but looking the same. SU electronic fuel pump fitted. The distributor was rebuilt by the Distributor Doctor in 2015 and is still fitted with points. A complete, rear exit, Dennis Welch exhaust is fitted. The result is a very smooth, strong engine, with power from 1,000 rpm and good torque in the crucial mid speed range from 1,000 to 4,000 rpm, which will provide good power up to 6,000 rpm if required. A 30% power increase was achieved over the standard engine. The engine was re-installed in October 2016.

Gearbox and overdrive units dismantled and rebuilt with new components as required, including a full set of new sychro cones in 2015.

Both front and rear axles have been rebuilt with new bearings and oil seals, in 2015.

The dynamo and starter motor were rebuilt by a Lucas specialist in 2016.

New high intensity headlights give a strong beam but look original.

The chassis underside and box sections have received the full Dinitrol wax oil treatment for future anti corrosion measures.

A new dark blue tonneau cover was custom made in 2017, giving full protection with or without the side screens in place.

The hood is for the car is the original, still in good condition. This has rarely been used with the current owner preferring the use and look of the original hardtop.

An extra instrument panel sits under the heater controls, giving engine oil temperature and charging amps.
