I think it's about right, although I feel like it should be right.  I agree
with Jean, that Healey prices seem to be softening and the BJ8s are,
outside of the Ms and Ss, still leading the pack.  Compare this one at
Sotheby's already bid to $75k with two days left for an older
https://www.sothebys.com/buy/c28f2f2c-d1d4-43c1-951a-a7b8f6801c45   I
wonder if the BN7 would've fetched a higher price if it had already been
judged Concours Gold, which it looks like it may have easily reached?
