THE AUSTIN-HEALEY 3000

Designed as a sports car and indeed quite successful in rallying and racing, the Austin-Healey 3000 had by the mid-1960s evolved into the fully civilized 3000 Mk III. Fitted with roll-up side windows and an easily operable soft top, the 2+2 tourer was quite enjoyable and safe for daily driving. Fitted with the potent 2,912cc 150bhp twin-carb six-cylinder engine, mated to a four-speed manual overdrive transmission, and equipped with disc brakes in the front, the 3000 Mk III provided performance worthy of its sporting heritage. Despite the antiquity of the basic design, the Big Healey remained as popular as ever, though increasingly stringent safety and emissions legislation meant that its days were numbered.

The Motorcar Offered

Completed at the Healey works in May of 1964, this lovely LHD example was equipped for the North American market, finished in Colorado Red over a Black interior, and optioned with wire wheels, heater, adjustable steering column, Roadspeed tires, laminated windscreen, miles-per-hour speedometer and overdrive. The new car was destined for San Francisco, California, and most likely famous West Coast importer, Kjell Qvale's showrooms. The subsequent history remains unknown, but at some point, the Healey 3000 went to noted Claremont, California based restorer Kurt Tanner, who performed a full restoration on the car. The color combination chosen was the appropriate Sage Green over a Biscuit interior. Since acquired by the consignor - a Southern California based collector with a lifelong passion for European sports cars – the Big Healey has received service and maintenance works as needed, and continues to impress in its thoroughly restored condition. It should be noted that a new chassis plate has been mounted on the car, with a '65' prefix before the chassis number. Offered with a history file containing receipts and the British Motor Industry issued Heritage Trust Certificate, this iconic Austin-Healey is ready for the next owner.
