$125,000 - $150,000

Chassis no. H-BJ8-L/41305

Body no. 86216

Matching numbers; rare Metallic Golden Beige, as original
Completely restored by Tom and Randee Rocke, of Healey Lane
BMIHT Certificate and restoration photo-documentation

The example offered here, freshly restored by marque specialists Tom and Randee Rocke, of Healey Lane in Riverside, California, is simply exceptional. The car's Metallic Golden Beige color, applied to just 553 examples of the BJ8 and all on late-production cars, highlights the muscular curves of the Big Healey as no other color can. The paint, applied with a two-stage DuPont Chroma base in two separate applications, features exceptional depth and luster, and it must be seen to be admired.

This car features new English Leather Bone upholstery, direct from Mathews and Son, of London, England, with matching English wool carpeting. The interior completes this car's unique and striking color combination and imparts a high level of elegance that nicely complements the Big Healey's classic design.

Mechanically, the engine, gearbox, and overdrive have all been completely rebuilt to correct specifications. New components include the fuel tank and lines; brakes, brake lines, and cables; a cloth-covered wiring harness, as original; electrical components; front suspension and springs; rear leaf springs; and a steel exhaust system. Along with these components, new door mechanisms and handles; an elegant matching wood steering wheel; rebuilt original instruments; a walnut burl dashboard; chrome 60-spoke wire wheels with 185x70x15-inch tires; a new convertible top with a parade boot; a new windshield and side windows; and all-new weather stripping complete the highly detailed and comprehensive restoration.

As this outstanding Austin-Healey 3000 Mark III has been expertly restored and is accompanied by photographic documentation of the work performed and a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate, which verifies its original specification, its offering marks a tremendous opportunity for collectors and enthusiasts of these British sports car icons.
