1966 Original & Correct Austin Healey 3000 Mk3 Ph2 -Rare Survivor For Sale

Austin Healey 3000 BJ8 Mk3 Phase 2

The Austin Healey 3000 was launched in 1959 as the Mk1 with 124bhp, side change gearbox & sliding side screens. By 1964 the model had been through several upgrades, mainly to improve passenger comfort including a walnut dashboard, curved windscreen, wind up windows & a convertible hood. The ground clearance was also increased. The engine power was also increased to 150bhp by the addition of an improved camshaft profile & bigger 2" SU carburettors.

The car offered here is a very original & unmolested Austin Healey 3000 Mk3 phase2 in British Racing Green, which has all of the factory upgrades offered.

This is a rare survivor.

Only 3 owners in the past 39 years & very well looked after.

Showing 89, 000 miles, which is confirmed by a document in the extensive history file dated 23/ 11/ 81 which shows 75650 miles.

Repainted in its original shade of British Racing Green in 1990. The paint still looks extremely good, with just a few small marks as would be expected from 30 yr old paint. All bright work also presents very well.

The interior is all to original specification, the seats appear to still have the original covers fitted. All instruments & switches are correct, The steering wheel has an after market cover fitted.

The engine bay is original & appears not to have been restored. The engine was rebuilt in 1999 including a replacement fast road camshaft.
The wheels are to original factory specification & fitted with modern radial tyres.

The hood is in good condition & to original specification. A full tonneau & hood cover are also included.

The document file is extensive, confirming 3 owners until acquisition by our client in 2019, since when it has been stored,

The car will be UK road registered, with a Heritage Certificate.

One of the nicest original late 3000's we have looked after & with the sensible engine upgrade, it goes well too...

Plenty more detailed photos available on request.
