Description

1964 Austin-Healey 3000 MKIII for sale

This Austin Healey 3000 truly is a sight to behold, having all the requisite qualities to make it a must-see for anyone considering investing in this most distinguished of British marques. 

Built in September 1964, and registered on PRX 414B, this early MK 3 BJ8 (Phase 2) is finished in the traditional and most sought-after colour combination of Healey Ice Blue over Ivory white. 

Looking to the resplendent interior, the cabin is finished in blue leather paired to complimentary blue carpets and overmats with weather protection provided by a black mohair soft top in excellent condition.  

Delivered to its first owner in New Orleans, the car returned to the UK in 1993 where it later underwent a full professional restoration, including a superbly executed conversion to right hand drive format. Since then, the car has resided in cherished ownership, covering less than 8500 miles with enviable records of regular servicing and maintenance. 

 As would be expected with such a car, and as required by the most demanding of Healey buyers, it comes complete with a heritage certification providing evidence of it being an original matching numbers car and an extensive history file of service invoices, receipts and old MOT’s. 

Take to the road and the Healey’s 3-litre straight six’s statistics see an eye-watering 150HP at 5,200rpm, a top speed of 125mph and achieving 0-60 in 9.8 seconds.  The Healey-ites amongst you will already know that this particular variant offers greater refinement over earlier cars having the luxury of wind up windows, heater, adjustable steering column, pull up hood and full tonneau cover along with a superior ride and handling quality owing to revised spring and damping rates. With twin SU carburettors, this particular Healey’s soundtrack is further enhanced by a full-length stainless steel exhaust that’s best enjoyed with the roof down on a open country road. 

 Ideal for long distance touring, the car benefits from overdrive on 3rd and 4th gears, rear seats, and the added safety of recently fitted front and rear seat belts.  

  This car presents superbly. The paintwork is unblemished, the chrome is just as it should be, as are the five-chrome wire wheel road wheels fitted with period correct Pirelli Cinturato tyres 

 If you’re considering an Austin Healey 3000, this is a car you should see before considering any other.
