Sellers description:
1968 Austin Healey 3000 - made in 1968 and titled in 1968. VIN # HBJ8U42793G The last full year of production was 1967, but Austin Healeys were made until March of 1968. This particular car was 232 cars from the last one made. Phase 2 - the most desirable model of all. Visit the Austin Healey Club USA (AHCUSA) web site for more in-depth information on the Austin Healey.

This is a 2 owner Austin Healey 3000. I bought it in 1978 and have owned it 30 years. After the fender-bender in 1982 (see photos), it was put away. This car was stored in a dry garage for the last 26 years and only driven about 50 miles every couple of years to keep it "fresh".

Engine and mechanicals were done including a complete engine rebuild by a professional British car mechanic.

The car has new shocks and exhaust system and runs great. Frame is solid and straight but left front fender needs body work including missing headlight rim and broken lights. Rust is starting along rocker panels and rear fenders. Brake lights don't work (switch? bulbs?) and speedometer and wipers don't work(?). Speedometer shows 386 miles (that would be about right after the engine rebuild). Interior is in very good condition. Top is old but intact (back window is bad). Top boot was rarely used but has mouse damage.

Electric overdrive works but car needs to be driven more often. Brakes, clutch, etc. all very good.

This is a great candidate for restoration and a superb investment. I loved this Healey and you will too.
