Ebay item 6/27/12
cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll
Current bid $34,100 reserve not met, 11 bids 1 day left in auction.

Auction description:
Beautifully restored Austin Healey BJ8 Sports Convertible. The car is restored to "better than new" condition. By better than new I mean that the body was taken off the car and totally stripped down to bare metal and completely repainted inside and out with a two part base/clear coat paint. Prior to painting, the inside of the fenders(wings) were treated with stone chip material to protect the body from any damage from gravel and other debris while driving. While the body was off the car it was necessary to replace the door shut faces and gussets on both sides as well as the rocker panels. The lower front fender panels were also replaced. The previous "restoration" was not done up to par and had to be done over from scratch. The rockers were replaced with new ones that are the right length for the car and now the body lines and the door gaps are perfect. Also while the car was apart I had the windscreen frame, grille surround and hood, and the air scoop on the front of the hood re-chromed using a three step chroming process that gave me beautiful results. I replaced the grille insert with new because it is made of anodized aluminum and the new ones are very nice and fit well, unlike many of the other reproduction parts that are out there.

The interior has the original style AH seats covered in black leather with black carpeting.

I originally bought the car out of Colorado and drove it back to Illinois. The car performed very well and didn't even use any oil which, I know, is hard to believe for a British car. After driving it home, I installed a cruise control unit and a 12 volt outlet for GPS or MP3 player, and a good AM/FM radio with a CD player. These are things that you realize you need after driving alone for 1000 miles.

I also replaced the brake master cylinder, the clutch master cylinder and the brake/clutch reservoir just to be on the safe side. Also the car has a new battery.

The wheels are Dayton 475 F (15 x 5) Chrome with 72 stainless steel spokes.

I never intended to make a show car out of my Healey but did put it in several shows to advertise for the restoration shop that did the work and I won every show that I had entered.

bringatrailer.com/listing/1965-austin-healey-3000-bj8-mk-iii-7/
Current Bid: $19,989 Ends In: 6 days

Seller's description:
This 1965 Austin-Healey 3000 Mark III is finished in red over a black interior and equipped with power brakes, roll-up windows, a 148 hp 2.9-liter inline-six, and a 4-speed manual gearbox with overdrive. It received a cosmetic refurbishment under the previous owner approximately 10 years ago, which is documented in the gallery below. Modifications include a set of chrome wire wheels and driving lamps, as well as an alternator and a breaker-less electronic ignition. A service last month included the installation of new stainless mufflers and adjustment of the rear brakes. This Big Healey is now being offered with a BMIHT certificate, a photo album from the refurbishment, and a clear Illinois title in the seller's name.
Removable panels were separated from the chassis during the refurbishment and individually re-fit. Close-ups of the shut lines and panels gaps have been provided. A few small nicks have accumulated on the nose since the work was completed.

Replacement or renewed chrome was added during reassembly, along with new fender beading and rubber. The folding black soft top is an older replacement item and shows a few minor imperfections. 15" chrome wire wheels wear Cooper rubber, and front discs and rear drum brakes are power assisted. An album outlining the cosmetic refurbishment accompanies the sale.

The 4-seat interior received replacement upholstery during the refurbishment, along with a full set of lap belts. Roll-up windows and a "quick-action" top came standard on Healey 3000s beginning with the Mark II.

A wood-rimmed Lecarra wheel has been installed, and a set of Smiths gauges reside in the refinished burled wood dash. The center console houses a Pioneer CD player, with speakers in both footwells. 3,236 miles are shown on the odometer, approximately 800 of which were added by the seller during four years of ownership.

The 2.9-liter inline-six increased in output from 136 to 148 horsepower for Mark III production, attributed to a revised camshaft and larger SU carburetors. A center-shift 4-speed gearbox equipped with a Laycock overdrive is responsible for transmitting power to the rear axle. This example has been upgraded with an electronic breaker-less ignition in place of the points, and the generator has been changed out for an alternator. The original parts are included with the sale. A matching chrome spare resides in the trunk along with a soft face mallet and jack. A black tonneau and boot cover are also included.

The British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate shows a build completion date of December 21, 1964. It also confirms the original configuration and that the car was destined for the US market.
