Car to be at auction 7/14
classiccars.brightwells.com/viewdetails.php

Auction description:
Lot number 56
Estimate £38,000 - £42,000
Description Austin-Healey 3000 MkIII Phase 2
Registration AHZ 3667
Year 1967
Colour Yellow over Primrose
Engine size 2,912 cc
Chassis No. HBJ8L33441

The final and ultimate production development of the Austin Healey 100/3000 range arrived in 1964, the 3000 MkIII.

The MkIII now had even more power than before (150bhp) and a much more civilized interior compared to earlier models. Known internally as the BJ8, the standard mechanical equipment now included a brake servo and twin trailing arms for the rear suspension (in the slightly later MkIII phase 2) which improved handling and gave the car much-needed extra ground clearance.

Its more powerful engine got a new camshaft and uprated valve springs; breathing being further enhanced through a new exhaust system and twin 2" SU carburettors. The biggest changes appeared inside however, including a wood veneered dashboard, a centre console/gear surround and better seats. Production finally ceased in 1967, the original Frogeye based Austin-Healey Sprite MkV soldiering on as the sole representative of the marque until that too gave way to its MG-badged cousin in 1972.

This last-of-the-line MkIII phase 2 was purchased as a project in 1992 for £7,000. An extensive and long-term restoration took place, which was eventually finished off by a marque-specialist in 2000, their bill alone amounting to £23,000. We are advised that underneath the car is stunning with not a weld in sight and that during the restoration the odometer was reset to zero, the instrument showing that just 1,650 miles have been covered since then.
With so little use over the years, its owner enlisted Grimaldi Engineering to go right through the car several years ago. They fully serviced it, replacing various suspension and electrical components, the final bill after set-up and tuning coming to £8,000. The vendor now describes the car as driving beautifully.

Given a thorough 'detailing' and smart new hood cover, this lovely primrose over cream example has the desirable overdrive on 3rd and top. The vendor adds that the paintwork is superb, including under the bonnet, the car's current condition resulting from the countless thousands that have been spent on it since restoration began back in 1992.
