The Austin Healey 3000 underwent many changes throughout its 8-year production life, culminating in the BJ8 series which provided the smoothest and most comfortable driving experience of all the “Big Healeys.” Power was increased from 136 to 150 horsepower by the addition of a new, high lift cam and SU HD8 carburetors. Power assisted brakes now came standard and the interior was modestly redesigned to allow for better instrument monitoring by the driver. The chassis was also slightly altered to allow for better ground clearance. Production of the 3000 ended in late 1967 when it was unfortunately determined that the Austin Healey brand was no longer viable. A total of 17,712 Mark III Austin Healeys were produced during from 1964 to 1967 and they remain one of the most iconic British roadsters to have ever been produced.
The example on offer here, chassis number HBJ8L35548 and engine number 29KRUH10139, is a 1967 Austin Healey 3000 MK III. It is finished in an interesting and originally available color combination of Golden Beige Metallic with Red interior. Though the original colors were White with a Black interior, this highly sought after factory color combination was commonly offered on the later BJ8s. Not much is known regarding the cars early history but the car was treated to a full nut-and-bolt restoration by marque experts, BRC of Philadelphia, who are world renowned for their restorations of Big Healeys. They have restored over 600 “Big Healeys” and their knowledge and craftsmanship truly show in the stunning results that come out of their workshop. Though the car was restored over approximately 8 years ago, it presents excellently with less than 1000 carefully driven miles since restoration completion. It is offered with BMIHT certificate, spare and boot cover.
