THE AUSTIN-HEALEY 3000

With the introduction of the final 'Big Healey' 3000 Mk III model, the legendary British manufacturer of sports cars successfully retained the essence of its classic curvaceous long hood/short deck sports roadster, but had grown the car to accommodate 2+2 seating, and loaded it with amenities directed towards the booming North American market.

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 also provided performance worthy of its sporting heritage.

Shortly after the Mk III was introduced in 1964, 'Phase II' upgrades were added that would further enhance the ride and handling of all subsequent Mk III BJ8 series chassis through 1967. Top speed was 121mph and the 0-60mph time dipped below 10 seconds. 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 August of 1967, this lovely 'Big-Healey' 3000 Mk III BJ8 was finished as it appears today, in British Racing Green over a black interior and weather equipment. It was further equipped with wire wheels, heater, and other desirable extras. The car's destination per the Heritage Trust Certificate was Los Angeles, and the Healey is believed to have stayed in the mild SoCal climate until 2015. A comprehensive restoration was performed on the car in recent years, and a look through the history file clearly shows the detail of the job. This lovely example of the end-of-the-run Austin-Healey 3000 is ready to be enjoyed on Sunday drives or displayed at local car shows.
