The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms.

Introduced in October 1963, the 3000 MKIII was the most refined version of the popular “Big Healey” model line and was the last of Donald Healey's creations. The MKIII offered amenities such as roll-up windows carried over from the BJ7 series, burled walnut veneer dash, revised center console, and updated rear suspension in Phase II examples. Built between 1963 and 1967, over 17,000 were produced between Phase I and Phase II cars. Achieving 150 horse power via a twin SU carbureted inline 6 cylinder engine, the MKIII raced from 0-60 in 9.8 seconds; fast for the time period. Today, the MKIII variant is the most coveted of the 3000's and is one of the quintessential British motor cars representing lasting, and consistent value among car collectors.
