Auction description:
Arizona
Thursday, January 20, 2011
1967 Austin-Healey 3000 MKIII BJ8 Sports Convertible
LOT: 132
Chassis No. HBJ8L41566
Offered Without Reserve

- Kurt Tanner Restoration in 2004 with only 500 miles since
- Rare Anniversary Gold car with original body panels, engine and drivetrain

This Austin-Healey 3000 is finished in the unique factory color of metallic golden beige with red Ambla trim and a black Everflex convertible top and boot. This color scheme was only used on 553 Mk III cars from mid-1967 until the end of production. Also called “Anniversary Gold,” it represents one of the most unusual and desirable color schemes.

Marque expert Kurt Tanner bought the car in 2001 from a Pennsylvania owner and set about restoring it completely. At the time, the Healey showed about 40,000 miles from new and was in very complete overall condition.

The restoration began with a complete disassembly of the car; the chassis and body panels were completely stripped and subsequently sealed and primed. The original metallic golden beige paintwork was then applied and rubbed to concours standards. Mechanical work began with the engine; the block was bored, and new pistons, rings, bearings, gaskets, seals, timing chains, tensioner, reground camshafts, crankshafts and lifters were all installed. All engine ancillaries were also rebuilt. The engine and compartment are finished in the correct factory paint finishes with all appropriate stickers and decals. The braking system was fully restored, as was the suspension. The interior received the same attention as well, with new front and rear seats finished in the correct Ambla red. A new trunk kit in Armacord was fitted, as was a dashpad, arm bars and new walnut veneered dashboard.

The car retains all of its original body panels, engine and drivetrain. Also accompanying the sale is a dossier of photos chronicling the restoration, an Austin-Healey Driver’s Handbook, spare tire and black Everflex top boot. Residing in one of the most well-respected collections in the country, the car accumulated less than 500 miles since the restoration, and it has been meticulously maintained and cared for.
