HISTORY OF THE AUSTIN-HEALEY 3000 MARK III PHASE II ROADSTER
The Austin-Healey was born from the Healey Hundred, first shown at the 1952 Earls Court Motor Show. British Motor Industry legend Sir Leonard Lord, soon convinced Healey that Austin should build the car and thus the Austin-Healey 100 was born. The Austin-Healey's design and appeal as a true British Sports Car resulted in strong sales across the globe in the late 1950's and early 60's. Over time the design and drivetrain matured to the 6-cylinder Austin-Healey 3000, which was powered by a larger engine and featured a more comfortable interior, improved braking, and suspension. The pinnacle of the Healey 3000 was introduced in February 1964 in the form of the 3000 Mark III (BJ8). The Mark III featured a 150 horsepower engine with a new camshaft design in addition to larger carburetors with improved flow. The Austin-Healey 3000 is the last of the great "big Healeys" and is considered by many enthusiasts to be the best performing Austin-Healey ever built.
