1967 Austin 3000 Mark III Phase II
VERY NICE AND PRETTY RARE CONCOURS REGISTERED BRONZE 1967 AUSTIN HEALEY 3000 MKIII
THIS IS A 1967 BJ8 Mark III Phase II. This was the last year they were made and the largest engine ever produced. 150 HP top speed 120 mph. Previous owner was English and owned the car 30 years. Only driven in the rain twice. This car comes with the certified copy of the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust. Here is a small list of what has been done to the classic Austin Healey.
New parts or upgrades: entire brake system /new servo, fluids recently bled, new electronic ignition under passenger dash, electrical ground changed to negative, wheels and 72 spokes are chromed stainless, rear end upgraded to 3.54:1 keeping the car at lower non taxing RPM, electric OD, new stainless exhaust, new 6 blade radiator fan, racing style wing mirrors, new insulation in floor and transmission tunnel, rockers were rebushed, great compression in all 6 cylynders, 60 psi oil pressure in all 6 cylinders in OD above 40 mph, oil filter changed to a spin on, chrome valve cover comes with the car, the OEM green valve cover is on the car for Concours judging which won a bronze at the annual 2014 conclave at the Homestead in VA., chrome air cleaners, electric system replaced, gas tank, drive shaft, fuel pump. New glass windows, and wind screens, new larger tires, Vredestein 180X70X15R, wheel bearings, spring band springs and king pins, stripped and painted all panels to subframe, all rubber seals, weather sripping and trim, interior panels, seats (except rear seats) carpeting, burled wood dash, and radio, boot has been redone, steering wheel, tonneau cover with reinforcing bar, new Stayfast convertible top, boot cover and storage bags for all, Smith gauges refurbished, exceptional paint job done in original Colorado Red, no nicks or dents, engine bay is clean and show quality, boot contains spare tire/chrome wheel, car jack, spin off tools, original oil canister, EOM rear end, extra keys, Healey repair books, owners manual. I took the car to Hendrix Wire and Wheel in Greensboro, NC to get new tires, to balance, true wheels and drums on the rear. He used a lathe to do the job. The results were incredible. I havecopies of all the work that has been done on the car sinceI bought it in 2014. The only thing I know of that one might want to address is that 2nd gear comes out of place sometimes while coasting down a slight grade. I’m told it is a simple repair. There is a nylon ball and spring that holds it in 2nd gear and the spring has lost its tension. I had just finished insulating the transmission/drive train tunnel and did not want to disturbthe work. Everything is as near perfect as a 50 year old English car can be. Anyone who really knows these cars or has owned one will understand that there’s quite a bit invested into this car and the value is there. The miles are only 55,xxx which are extremely low for a car of this age obviously and the photos will tell a lot. It’s a beautiful car at a beautiful price and has been taken care of extremely well. Thank you for looking
Also, Ihave the EOM rear end, generator, distributor, chrome valve cover, and all sorts of books (owners manual), Moss catalogs, repair books, spare parts, specialty oils, gauges, etc.
