For sale on e-bay: cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Austin-Healey-3000-MKIII-BJ8-Roadster-
67,000 original mile 1966 Austin Healey Mk III BJ8 roadster.
This is an extremely original, three owner, very well documented and well maintained Healey, finished in its correct factory Colorado Red over black interior.
Its three owners have cared for this vehicle the way all Healey owners should. This is a very special and beautiful car. The body is exceptional and the paint is gorgeous.
All panels fit as they should and the paint is deep and lustrous with little if no imperfections. The chrome and trim is outstanding.
The car has rare 72 spoke wheels that are in exceptional condition wrapped in new Pirelli tires. The original soft top was recently replaced with a new factory correct Moss Motors black soft top. The plastic is crystal clear.
The interior is original and in great shape. The seats have very minimal wear showing a beautiful light patina. The dash is free of any warping or cracking. The wood is in good condition. This is a gorgeous and unmolested original Healey in exceptional shape.
The car is in superior mechanical condition. The car just underwent a full service where it received a full brake service, radiator recore, new water pump and hoses, new fuel pump, etc. The car certainly drives like a 67k original mile Healey. The compression is excellent. It always fires right up without any smoke or unusual sounds or vibrations. This has been an occasional weekend driver for me and I have nothing negative to report on its drivability. It's an absolute joy cruising down the highway, roaring through the canyons or even just tooling around on a Sunday afternoon, getting waves and thumbs up from onlookers.
