Austin Healey 3000 Mk3 1964 dark blue For Sale
|Click here for more info / photos|
|The Austin Healey 3000 is one of the best known “big Healey” models. The “big Healeys” consisted of the 100, 100-6 and 3000. They were called big to distinguish them from their much smaller predecessor, the Austin-Healey Sprite. The bodywork of the 3000 was made by Jensen Motors and the vehicles were assembled by Austin-Healey themselves at the Abingdon works. The 3 litre 3000 was a highly successful car, winning many rally’s in its class at the time. Manufacturing of the first Austin-Healey 3000 started in 1959 and was ended by British Leyland in 1967.|
Austin-Healey produced three series of the 3000, the Mark I, II & III. The Mark I was first announced on 1 July 1959, featuring a 3 litre BMC C-Series engine, to replace the smaller 2.6 litre engine of the 100-6, and front disc brakes. Other changes remained relatively minor, compared to those between the original 100 and 100-6. It retained the same wheelbase, body and body styles, 2+2 and a 2-seater. As options wire wheels, overdrive gearbox, laminated windscreen, heater, adjustable steering column, a two-tone paint scheme were available and a detachable hardtop for the 2+2 were available.
In 1961 the Mark II was introduced, it featured a engine fitted with three SU HS4 carburettors and an improved camshaft. It also came with a vertically barred front grille. Later that year a brake servo was available as optional extra, leading to greatly improved braking performance. The BJ7 sports convertible launched in August 1962 was a true convertible, with almost saloon like comfort. Its performance was increased by Twin SU HS6 carburettors that replaced the triple HS4’s.
The last of the great Austin-Healey 3000, the Mark III, was announced in February 1964. The cars power was increased to 150 BHP by a new higher camshaft and SU HD8 carburettors replaced the HS6 units. Power-assisted braking now came as standard, instead of optional. The Mark III also received a new dashboard with the speedometer and tachometer directly in front of the driver.
The car shown here is a beautiful Mark III example from 1964, finished in dark blue exterior and black leather interior.
Frame-up restored in 2000-2001 in our workshop.
