This Austin-Healey 3000 MkIII was rebuilt in 1990/1991 for historic circuit racer Phil Buck to go rallying. A substantial amount of the body and chassis was renewed in aluminium in a no-expense-spared restoration carried out by Maurice Jennings of SRS Motorsport at an estimated cost of circa £100,000. Once this most authentic Works Replica had been completed, (featuring on the cover of the June 1992 Classic Cars magazine), Buck used it for only three rallies, finishing 9th on the 1993 RAC Historic and racing it once at the Nürburgring's Nordschliefe. Since then, 'SPY 283C' has seen little action but most recently competed on The Three Castles Rally (2008), The Rally of the Tests (2011), and The Classic Marathon (2012). We are advised that the engine, gearbox, and overdrive were rebuilt recently (bills available).
