AUSTIN HEALEY 3000 MK III BJ8 Phase II 1967

vehicle overview

1967 Austin-Healey 3000 BJ8 Mklll (Phase ll) Ice Blue over Old English White with blue leather piped white and a blue mohair hood. The Austin-Healey 3000 is a British sports car built from 1959 to 1967 and is the best known of the ‘big’ Healey models. It proved to be a worthy successor to the 100-6, being highly successful on both road and track and was to be the final development of the model. The 3000 won its class in many European rallies in its heyday and is still used in competition by enthusiasts today. Its long competition history saw the 3000 compete at most major racing circuits around the world, including Sebring, Le Mans, and Mount Panorama Circuit, Bathurst. The 3000 Mark III was launched in October 1963 and remained in production until the end of 1967 when production of Austin-Healeys ceased. Classified as the BJ8, the new model was the most powerful and luxurious of the big Healeys, with a walnut-veneered dash, wind-up windows, and a 150bhp engine, giving a top speed of 121 mph. Improvements to the engine included a new camshaft and valve springs, and twin SU 2" HD8 carburettors, together with a new design of exhaust system. Servo-assisted brakes were now fitted as standard. The Phase ll versions had revised rear suspension which improved handling. We are very proud to offer this 1967 model, making it one of the last Healeys to be produced. It was delivered from the factory on the 15th July 1967 to North America in LHD configuration and returned to the UK in 1989 prior to being sold to the Netherlands, from whence it was purchased it in June 2017. The car was basically in great condition, having the normal Healey essential elements of a stainless-steel exhaust system, a wood-rimmed steering wheel and chrome wire wheels, but has recently been restored, including a professional conversion to RHD, a rear brake overhaul, a new brake servo, a new period wiring loom and a new tailor-made hood cover in Blue Mohair. The engine bay and chrome-work were also given thorough attention. The Healey is fully UK-registered, starts ‘on the button’, drives exceptionally well, with the gearbox and overdrive in good condition, and is now just waiting to be enjoyed in new hands. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted. Please visit our Website, find us on Facebook and like us on Instagram or just feel free to email or call us.
