1965 Austin-Healey 3000 Mk III

Make: Austin-Healey
Model: 3000 Mk III
Year: 1965
Registration Number: PNW 95C
Chassis Number: H-BJ8-L/33436
Engine Number: 29K-RU-H/8081
Steering: Right Hand Drive
MOT Test Expiry: 23 October 2013
Guide Price: £25000 - 30000

Auction Date: 6 December 2012

This 3000 Mk III was originally supplied to the Kenosha dealer in the USA, as confirmed by the copy BMIHT certificate in the history file. The Healey was repatriated to the UK in the early 1990s for £11750. The motor car was converted to right-hand drive and a comprehensive restoration by respected specialist JME of Kineton followed, at a cost of some £12,000. A full chassis / body rebuild was carried out, together with work to the steering, suspension, braking system and electrics. We understand that the engine had previously been rebuilt, but checks to the engine, gearbox and clutch were implemented by JME prior to the car's reassembly. The interior was also offered the same level of meticulous attention: the front and rear seats were reupholstered; a new hood, new carpets and door seals were fitted and the dashboard top facia was enhanced.

Further maintenance and improvement work was carried out by JME up until the present custodian purchased PNW 95C in 1999. An Austin-Healey Club member himself, the vendor has used a local specialist for maintenance, which has included an overdrive unit and clutch replacement and an engine overhaul etc...

This 3000 Mk III is a good example, with excellent door and panel fit. It is a pleasure to drive. The large history file contains numerous invoices and the V5C registration certificate.

I am the BJ8 Model Registrar for the AHCA. In January 2001, the former owner (now deceased) of this car in North Easton, Massachusetts told me he had scrapped it and that is how I am listing it in the registry. Which part(s) of it may have survived would be of interest. The correct engine number is quoted, but that can easily be obtained from BMIHT. I would very much appreciate it if the owner would contact me to discuss the car and the evidence that it is truly the original 33436. I have a record of one earlier owner in Weymouth, MA prior to 1985.
