This last-year Big Healey underwent a Concours Judge-supervised frame-up restoration performed by John Wilson of Healey Healey Lane Restorations in Eugene, Oregon, resulting in an outstanding example of Austin-Healy style and power. The inline 6-cylinder 3000cc engine was remanufactured to original specifications by Specialist Motor Works in Spokane, Washington. With a pair of SU carburetors, the engine was rated for 150 horsepower at 5,250 RPM and 173 lb-ft of torque at 3,000 RPM. The finned aluminum valve cover was polished to a shine. A stainless-steel exhaust adds durability and proper sound. The engine is backed by a 4-speed manual transmission with a working toggle switch overdrive for six forward speeds. The Austin-Healey engine was at its peak in this configuration and could propel the Big Healey to a 120 MPH. Front disc brakes help bring the MkIII back down from top speed. The restoration included an aluminum cowl, deck lid and four fenders purchased by Austin-Healey Spares in London and installed by Lancaster restorations in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. The body was finished into British Racing Green with new chrome plating on the hinges, bumpers and signature Austin-Healey winged hood crest. A new top opens to an interior centered by leather seats. The Mark III package included a heater, windshield wipers and an adjustable steering column. This last of the Big Healeys rides on chrome wire wheels equipped with period Michelin tires and comes with a copy of its original Heritage Trust Certificate.
