This 1965 Austin-Healey 3000 BJ8 Mark III Sports Convertible was offered for sale at the 2007 RM Auctions held at Meadow Brook. The car was estimated to sell for $65,000 - $85,000. It is finished in Healey Blue with a Navy Blue top and interior. Under the bonnet is a six-cylinder overhead-valve engine that displaces 178 cubic-inches. There is a four-speed manual gearbox and disc brakes in the front.
A group up rotisserie restoration to concours standards was undertaken on this car. The interior was redone and the body paint was professionally stripped to the bare metal. The mechanical components were also restored.
At auction, bidding reached $55,000 but was unable to satisfy the reserve. The vehicle was left unsold.
