Car was at auction in '06
Sale Of Collectors' Motor Cars and Automobilia, Bonhams & Butterfields (18th August 2006)
1964 Austin-Healey 3000 MkIII Roadster
Sold new in the USA, this left-hand drive Austin-Healey 3000 was treated to a full, body-off restoration completed in June 1988 by Tom Kovacs of Fourintune in Cedarburg, WI who had purchased it as a restoration project. Always kept garaged and well cared for, the car has enjoyed two owners post-Kovacs (the current since June 2006) and covered only 6,000-or-so miles since completion. The vendor has recently completed a thorough detailing of the vehicle including paintwork, trim, under-pinnings, interior, wheels and engine bay (belts, hoses, etc). In addition, the carburetors have been overhauled and the engine tuned, and both the braking and suspension systems serviced. Parts replaced include the windshield and seal, rear road springs, brake servo, exhaust system (with a stainless steel unit) and numerous minor items.
Finished in classic Colorado Red livery with black interior, this car boasts a number of highly desirable features including four-speed manual/overdrive transmission, chromed wire wheels and luggage rack. It is offered complete with owner�s manual, spare wheel, knock-off hammer, assorted service invoices and State of California Certificate of Title, and is expected to possess a BMIHT build certificate by time of sale. A fine example of the much sought-after �Big Healey� in its ultimate incarnation, this car is ready to be enjoyed by a fortunate new owner.
