1967 Austin Healey 3000 - BJ8 with 85,754 miles on the odometer. (serial number: HBJ8L40806) I purchased this car in 1973 from the first owner. The car was last started 21 years ago. I was using it daily when it was finally parked. At the time, the engine was strong and the tranny had a rattle in first gear. The windscreen has a faint scratch in it from the previous owner running without a wiper blade. The carpeting needs replacing, the seats have no rips or tears, but are old. The top has been down for 21 years. I put it up for the pictures this week. It is in great shape, no rips in fabric or seams. The isinglass is discolored reddish and the zipper no longer works. I also have the original boot for the top. A full tonneau and support rod are included. It can be fastened and divided for driving solo or with a passenger. The tires are almost new Michelins. (They still have the little you know what’s on them.) The wire wheels and splines are fine. There is a cowl crack that was almost standard on big Healeys. It's been patched, but is beginning to bubble through. There is a small amount of rust coming through behind the doors at the front of the rear wheel wells, more on the passenger side than the driver’s side. The motor is orginal, never been rebuilt. It will turn over. The car has flat faced Lucas halogen headlights that don’t have much time on them. I installed them a year or two before garaging the car. The car has been in a garage for 5 years at my present house, and 16 years at my last house. I trailered it to it’s present location. I have the orginal owner’s manual, and a shop manual (if I can find it), along with the SU carb vacuum tuning tool. I will also include the premier book on Austin-Healey’s: “Healeys and Austin-Healeys”, by Peter Browning and Les Needham. This book was signed by Donald Healey in 1976 during one of the few times he visited the states for the annual Austin-Healey Conclave. The book retails for 80 dollars without Mr. Healey’s signature, so the sky’s the limit for a signed publication.
