    Car to be at auction 8/07

    Auction description:
    Exceptional Motor Cars At The Monterey Jet Center
    Location Monterey, Jet Center Sale Date Aug 16, 2007
    Lot Number 0053
    Sale Number 1864
    Lot Title Formerly the Property of country singer Mr. Alan Jackson
    Estimate 60,000 - 80,000 U.S. dollars
    Special Notice This lot is offered without reserve.
    1966 AUSTIN-HEALEY 3000 MK III PHASE 2

    Chassis No. HBJ8L32017
    Engine No. 29K/RU/H5256

    Cobra 'guardsman' blue with blue leather interior and blue soft top

    This example on sale today was until recently in the collection of country singer Alan Jackson. Mr. Jackson, it is reported, had a considerable collection of quintessential British sports cars so it's no wonder this Healey fit in so well. Having been restored to a near- Healey blue, probably best described as the AC Cobra 'guardsman' blue with blue interior and a blue everflex roof this example leaves nothing out. Fitted with electronic overdrive, chrome wire wheels with two ear knock-off hubs, telescopic steering column with original three-spoke steering wheel, Thor knock-off hammer a battery cut off switch and a tool roll this is certainly a prime example of the 'quintessential British sports car'. This is a stunning example that would benefit any collection.
    WITHOUT RESERVE
