Description

Lovely BJ8 that's been in current private ownership for over 30 years.
The Austin-Healey 3000 is the very epitome of the classic British sports car and one of the very few cars that can be said to have attained classic status whilst still in production. Quite an achievement then, but not an altogether unexpected one considering Austin-Healey's heritage coupled with its achievements in motorsport. The 3000 Mk III (BJ8) with 150bhp appeared early in 1964 to be followed later in the year by the Phase II version which featured a brace of HD8 SU carburettors, stronger valve springs, a revised camshaft, walnut-veneered dashboard, wind-up windows, a redesigned rear chassis, addressing a long-term criticism of the car's notoriously poor ground clearance, and revised rear suspension incorporating twin radius-arms instead of a Panhard rod. Top speed was now 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, although increasingly stringent safety and emissions legislation meant that its days were numbered and by the time production ended in December 1967, over 16, 000 Phase IIs - by far the most popular variant - had been built.
Finished in Colorado Red over Jet Black paintwork with Black Leather with Red Piping and Red matching carpets. Specified from new with wire wheels, overdrive, heater, an adjustable steering column, laminated windscreen, Avon Road Speed tyres and a black tonneau cover which was pretty much the entire options list in 1966.
This car has remained in current private family ownership for over 30 years meaning that this BJ8 is excitingly on the market for the first time in over three decades. Indeed, it has resided in a car bubble for the past five years ensuring it presents so well today.
Supplied with a history file, this is a rare opportunity to purchase this delightful example of the final development of the venerable Healey 3000 from long term ownership and at a very reasonable price.....
