    EOL 604C is a full specification late BJ8 phase 2 car. Full specification car with overdrive, wooden dashboard, black leather seats, wire wheels and wooden dashboard, manufactured in November 1966.

    The history file has invoices for restoration and engine rebuild in the 1990s. Mots detail mileage from 1993, (3708 miles) through 2000, 7207 (miles) to 2012 (12952 miles). Finished in the very popular British Racing Green colour. This car is an early version of the later phase 2 mark III Austin Healey 3000. In recent years the car has traveled very few miles and been stored in a dry garage in a cocoon which has contributed to the good condition of the car.d.The car will be serviced by Rawles Motorsport Ltd and is sold with 12 months MOT. For more details of this and other Austin Healeys or sale please visit our web site www.rawlesmotorsport.co.uk.

    According to the UK 3000 Register, the car with UK registration number EOL604C is HBJ8L/33350, not HBJ8L/38996. The register entry was made in April 1994 and indicated the owner had purchased the car in 1989. The color was described as BRG/Ivory. A replacement engine had been installed as of the entry date. Unless some other car now has the UK registration plate, or unless the engine has been changed again and someone has used the current engine number to get the BMIHT certificate, something is screwy here. The statement "This car is an early version of the later Phase 2 Mark III is halfway true for 33350, but not for 38996. HBJ8L/33350 is an earlier version than 38996 of a Phase 2 BJ8.
