1959 Austin Healey 3000 Mark 1 BT7

“Delilah” (those of a certain age will know how Jane came about the name from the registration!) arrived with us in Autumn 2019 and has been in regular and enthusiastic use on adventures ever since across Norfolk, Suffolk and beyond.

Our car spent around 40 years in the hot and dry climate of Beverley Hills in LA and arrived “home” to the UK in need of everything except welding! She was repatriated, so the story goes, with a brace of E-types by a professional Jag restorer who quickly turned the E-types around for profit and lovingly restored Delilah as a keeper over several years. Good man.

Lives near Gorleston-on-Sea on the Norfolk Riviera:-)
