The Austin-Healey 3000 remains one of the best-loved classic British sports cars of all time and to many, the best version was the final BJ8 Mark III, introduced in 1963 and built through 1967. Breathing through dual SU carburetors, the Austin-Healeys 2,912 cc six delivered 150 HP and a 120-mph top end. Featuring a revised exhaust system and standard power brakes with discs up front, the Big Healey was renowned for its sporting and sophisticated driving experience. The snug cockpit was surprisingly luxurious in contrast to other contemporary sports cars, with high-grade amenities including a handsome wood-faced dashboard and a floor console, plus full weather gear including roll-up side windows. Only about 17,700 examples of the Mark III were produced, and all survivors are cherished as enjoyable collector cars today with strong club, parts, and restoration support readily available.
Finished in proper British Racing Green paint over a cockpit trimmed in Black upholstery, this later-production 1967 Austin-Healey 3000 Mk III benefits from a quality professional restoration performed by International Classics in Skokie, Illinois from 2008 to 2010. Offered from single-owner care since 2008, this prime-quality Big Healey has been only sparingly used with only an approximate 2,500 miles since the restoration was completed. Since 2014, it has been serviced and stored on the owners behalf at The Last Detail. Riding on a correct set of Dayton 72-spoke chrome wire wheels, the Healeys many features include a 4-speed manual gearbox with overdrive for relaxed high-speed cruising, a stainless steel exhaust system, and both driving and fog lamps. Added heat and sound shielding provides heightened comfort and an updated wiring harness enhances reliability. Documentation includes restoration receipts totaling around seventy five thousand invested into this beautiful Austin Healey. As expected, this outstanding example drives as well as it looks.
