This 3000 MkII BT7 was built between June and August 1961 Destined for the US Market where it resided Until 2009. An Import Approval dated 29th October 2009 Confirms its New Home in Australia. In 2015 it passed to a New Owner who then Commissioned a Restoration, carried out by Callanish Restorations in Creswick, Victoria, finally being Completed in May 2018. The Accompanying Invoice File Confirms Details of the Restoration which Included a Full Engine Rebuild using Forged Pistons, Modified Rear Crank Seal the Fitment of a Toyota Supra 5 Speed Manual Gearbox Conversion.

The Soft Top Hood is in Black Vinyl as is the Tonneau Cover, while the Sidescreens are the Sliding Perspex Type. The Bumpers have been Deleted from both Front And Rear, with the Front Now Featuring a Pair of Driving Lights, whilst the Rear has a Pair of Chrome Bumperettes.

As well as the 5 Speed Gearbox Conversion, there have been a Number of Other Upgrades, these Include: an Alloy Radiator, a Texas Kooler Type Fan, Thermatic Radiator Fan, Rally Vents in the Front Guards, An Alternator, a Hi-Torque Starter, Scorcher Electronic Distributor, A Spin-On Oil Filter Conversion and a Cable Throttle Conversion. All Together the Final Package has Vastly Improved Cooling, More Reliable Performance, and Superior Serviceability.
