1966 Austin Healey 3000 Mk. III
Numbers Matching, Fresh Concourse Restoration, 50,000 Miles
For many reasons, the Austin-Healey 3000 Mk. III remains one of the most highly sought after British classics. It is as versatile a sports car as one could hope for, offering the owner both spirited performance and comfortable touring. This numbers matching BJ8, in handsome BRG over Black, is one of the finest examples available for sale. With only 50,000 original miles, this car benefits from a complete fresh concourse quality restoration. The car presents as showroom new: the body was stripped to bare metal and found to be in great shape. It was then repainted in its original colors. No body components have been replaced aside from rockers and rear doglegs. The interior has been replaced completely with carpeting, trim, and new top provided by Heritage Upholstery. The engine was torn-down, rebuilt, repainted and re-gasketed, as was the transmission. The engine compartment was redone correct to concourse, and a complete new wiring harness was installed. The gas tank was removed, cleaned, and painted, and all rubber was replaced throughout the car. Please call or write us if you would like details on the complete restoration.
The result of this work is a car that excels both cosmetically and mechanically. No stone was unturned in the restoration, and the new owner will enjoy this car immensely! The car comes with boot cover, full spare and hammer/jack, and comprehensive restoration records.
