Car to be at auction 10/15
1967 Austin Healy 3000 BJ8 MKIII
Estimate: $75,000 - 85,000
Chasis # HBJ8L38545
The Austin Healy 3000 pictured here is a spectacular example of this legendary car and is offered here after being retained by the same owner since the early 1970s. Officially known as the Mark III and designated as the BJ8, this stellar example has the Le Mans style air vents on the side and also sports a chrome side pipe exhaust. Chrome wire wheels complete the classic British sports car styling of this Healey and it's also finished in a beautiful gleaming red coat of paint. Power for this 3000 Mark III comes from a 150 horsepower inline six fitted with twin SU carburetors. Standard equipment on the Mark III also included a walnut-veneer dashboard and roll up windows. Clearly the 3000 was becoming a highly refined sports car in its final years and this Mark III proves it.
The Austin Healey 3000 was the right car at the right time. It was always known as a great weekend touring car, but its success at places like Sebring and Le Mans made it a legend in its own time. This example with its excellent condition and special features makes it a stand out in the crowd. If your collection is missing that classic British sports car, this is the Mark III that deserves a special place in a world class collection.
