Auction description:
Amelia Island
09 March 2013
Lot 186
1965 Austin-Healey 3000 Mark III BJ8 Convertible
Sold for $79,750

Chassis no. H-BJ8-L/30530
Engine no. 29K-RU-H/5327
Body no. 75446

Recent and meticulous body-off restoration
Includes British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate
Glove box lid and accompanying framed artwork signed by Gerry Coker, former Healey Motor Company designer

The car shown here was described in August 2012 as "better than new from the factory" by Gerry Coker, the legendary former Healey Motor Company designer who styled the original Austin-Healey 100 and the subsequent Big Healeys. Coker signed the inside of the glove box lid, commenting, "Super Job."

The praise was earned by a 12-month, body-off restoration by Peggy Craft Restorers, of Tennessee. During the restoration, the body was taken to bare metal and then refinished in three coats of epoxy primer, four color coats, and six clear coats, with the Healey Blue and Ivory White colors matched to original color chips. The chassis boxing was strengthened, and the engine, gearbox, and suspension were all rebuilt. Restoration of the interior included rebuilding the seats in parchment leather with dark blue piping, a refurbishment of the instruments, and new carpets. African rosewood was used for new wood facings and the Mike Lampert steering wheel. The cloth top, boot, and tonneau cover are all new.

Included with the car is framed artwork signed by Gerry Coker. With his endorsement, a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate accompanies the car, and with only 46,054 miles on the odometer, this immaculate 3000 Mk III is unquestionably one of the most desirable examples of a much sought-after marque.
