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. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.

The best known of the big Healey models, the Austin-Healey 3000 was built from 1959 to 1967. The car s body was made by Jensen Motors, and the vehicles were assembled at the BMC Abingdon Works. Still used in competition by enthusiasts today, the 3000 s extensive competition history saw it race at most major racing circuits around the world, including Sebring, Le Mans, and even Mount Panorama Circuit, Bathurst, Australia.
The 3000 Mark III was launched in October 1963 and remained in production until the end of 1967 when the company merged with British Leyland. 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 powerful 150-hp engine. Improvements to the engine included a new camshaft and valve springs, and twin SU 2-in. HD8 carburetors, together with a new design of exhaust system. Additionally, servo-assisted brakes were now fitted as standard.
Offered here is a nicely presented rust-free example that has been restored to original condition, including body and mechanicals. Repainted in the original British Racing Green over black, the 3000 also boasts excellent 60-spoke knock-off wheels, and the original burl wood dash. The rebuilt engine runs well and starts easily, and the four-speed transmission with optional overdrive shifts effortlessly. The accompanying top and tonneau cover are in excellent condition.
This is clearly a fine example of the most comfortable, most weather-tight, and most luxurious of all Austin-Healeys.
