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 Austin-Healey works during Spring of 1963, this lovely LHD example of the penultimate 3000-model was most likely delivered new to the North American market. This particular car has been collector-owned for many years, and received a beautiful multi-year restoration which was completed in 2012. Both mechanical and cosmetic aspects of the car was attended during the tedious process. The bodywork was stripped to bare metal and repainted in classic Healey Red, while the chrome and trim was re-plated. The six-cylinder engine, drivetrain, and other mechanical systems were gone through as well. The interior was fully restored in black, as was the tonneau cover and convertible top. New radial tires were shod on refinished 60-spoke knock-off wire wheels. Many photos and receipts from the restoration accompany the sale of the car, as does a set of tools. With roll-up windows and full weather equipment, these Big Healey's are very usable and comfortable. They offer great handling, excellent torque from the large six-cylinder engine, and relaxed highway cruising thanks to the overdrive transmission. This lovely example is ready to be enjoyed on Sunday drives or displayed at local car shows.
