This is a beautiful 1965 Austin Healey 3000 BJ8 MkIII. A real, purebred: “Big Healey”. The car has been Nut & Bolt restored and technically overhauled in the past and is still in very good condition. The car has a beautiful color scheme and thanks to the good maintenance over the past years, it is also a pleasure to drive.
The bodywork looks neatly cared for. The sheet metal is nice and thin and the fits are correct. The car was completely reduced to bare metal during the restoration, both the frame and the body were completely reduced to the point that there was no paint on it. The frame was repainted and the body was repainted in this beautiful two-tone livery. The chrome work has all been renewed and the wheels have been re-powdered in this gray colour. The car still has a very nice appearance and is a pleasure to look at. The convertible top is in good used condition with only very light signs of use. The hood is easy to operate and fits nicely anywhere. Of course there is also a tonneau cover for the days when the hood can stay down.
The interior was completely reupholstered at the time with beautiful dark blue leather and dark blue carpets. The seats have been re-filled and are comfortable. The instruments and controls all function as they should and also look beautiful. Both the upholstery on the seats and the carpets are in good condition and are neatly cared for. The steering wheel and shift knob are completely original and look neatly cared for.
The technique was completely overhauled during the restoration. The engine produces 150 hp. The 2.9-litre in-line six is mated to a four-speed manual transmission. The technique has been very well maintained by a specialist in recent years and the car drives very well. The brakes are easy to dose, the chassis gives a lot of confidence and is well sprung and damped and finally the steering is wonderfully precise. It is not so surprising that Austin Healeys were raced a lot in the past. That beautiful six-in-line engine makes the car a wonderfully fast weapon to attack corners.
The restoration was beautifully documented at the time through an extensive photo report that is present with the car. In addition, there are also invoices for the maintenance performed from 2008 to 2021. In short, a beautiful Austin Healey 3000 BJ8 Mk3 in a very attractive color scheme and in good optical and technical condition.
