The Austin-Healey 3000 was built from 1959 to 1967 and is the best known of the 'big' Healey models. The car's bodywork was made by Jensen Motors and the vehicles were assembled at the BMC Abingdon works. The 3000 was a successful car which won its class in many European rallies during its heyday and also ran at Le Mans during that period. As such, it's still used in competition by enthusiasts today. The 3000 Mk. III was launched in October 1963 and remained in production until the end of 1967 when production of Austin-Healeys ceased. Classified as the BJ8, the new model was the most powerful and luxurious of the big Healeys with a walnut veneer dash, wind-up windows and a 150bhp engine. Improvements to the engine included a revised camshaft, valve springs and twin SU 2" HD8 carburettors together with a redesigned exhaust system and servo-assisted brakes. This is a genuine righthand drive example originally supplied by Cogger and Hawkins Ltd in Aylesbury after being dispatched from the factory on 23 rd July 1965. Upon our inspection the car started immediately when requested and APO 373C drove well with no obvious faults. The blue paintwork shows no obvious signs of corrosion and the cream leather trim is in good order. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 30 th December 2016 and fitted with a desirable overdrive gearbox this Austin Healey 3000 Mk.III is a perfectly useable example and one that can be enjoyed immediately taking into account Spring is just around the corner.
