$90,000 - $120,000

Factory records provided by the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust indicate that this car was built at the Abingdon factory between March 16 and April 5, 1967, making it among the last 200 examples of Donald Healey's long-running sports car. On April 11, 1967, the car was dispatched to a dealership in Ontario, Canada.

In the early 2000s, this car was acquired by Kurt Tanner, the California-based restorer of Austin-Healeys who has focused exclusively on the marque for the last 18 years. Mr. Tanner performed a restoration that addressed me- chanical and cosmetic aspects of the car. Though the car was originally finished in British Racing Green with a black interior, Mr. Tanner opted to change the car's livery to a color scheme more becoming of a classic Healey - black paint over a proper interior of red Ambla vinyl.

Following the completion of Mr. Tanner's work in early 2003, this handsome BJ8 was acquired in August of that year by its current owner, a classic car enthusiast from Northern California. Eager to showcase the Healey's desirable condition, the consignor exhibited the car at numerous local concours d'elegance over the following year, winning Second in Class at the 2005 Ironstone Concours d'Ele- gance held at the Ironstone Winery in Mur- phys, California, and a First in Class at the 2004 Greater Valley Concours d'Elegance in Fresno, California.

Since then, this wonderful Phase 2 BJ8 has been driven sparingly and has been routinely maintained as needed and garaged for optimal preservation. It is accompanied by a reprinted owner's manual, a photo album documenting its restoration, an original jack and its heritage certificate from the BMIHT.

Beautifully detailed, this delightful Austin- Healey 3000 invites spirited drives on touring events or successful afternoons of exhibition, and is a testament to the timeless appeal of one of England's most revered sports cars.
