Yes some early BT7 had those, it is discussed in the Concours Guide. I think a good way to know if yours should have them or not, is to determine if there are captive nuts on the inside of the inner fenders for the bolt that hold the bump boxes. If there are nuts, then you should not have the pan head, Phillips, ¼” UNF screws from the inside.

Subject: [Healeys] Rear Quarter Panel Screws BT7


The interior on my Healey BT7 was in very poor condition when I purchased the car. I am making the the rear quarter panels and noticed some Healey's from the same time frame as mine have two screws holding the rear quarter panel in place. It looks like the screws go through the wheel well and then secure the bump stops. I have the the original wooden pieces which are in very poor shape but definitely no holes. The car in question was manufactured in November 1960 and is towards the end of the BT7 Mk1 production.

Were these holes added by the factory or are they aftermarket?
