Overall, this 3000 MkIII is the most desirable production Austin Healey being the late, double-light variant. It is offered here on Ebay in highly original condition, ready for straight forward restoration. This is a rare opportunity to secure such a low-mileage, un-messed-with vehicle, in a desirable factory color scheme. With this escalating Big Healey market, these sought after late grand tourers are seldom available in this condition. This vehicle is sold with the clear, current California title.
