The Austin-Healey 3000 is a British sports car built from 1959 to 1967, and is the best known of the "big healey" models. The car's bodywork was made by Jensen Motors, and the vehicles were assembled by Austin Healey at their Abingdon works.

The 3-litre 3000 was a highly successful car, which won its class in many European rallies in its heyday and is still raced in classic car competitions by enthusiasts today.

The Austin-Healey 3000 was introduced in 1959, replacing the Austin Healey 100-6. Despite its new name, the changes were minor compared to those between the original 100 and the 100-6. The wheelbase and body were unchanged, as were the models, a 2+2 and a two-seater.

The 3000 Mark III was launched in October 1963, and remained in production until the end of 1967, when manufacture of Austin-Healeys ceased. Designated the BJ8, the 2+2 Mark III was the most powerful and luxurious of the big Healeys, with a standard walnut-veneer dash, wind-up windows, and a 150 hp (112 kW) engine. Added power came from a new camshaft and valve springs, twin SU 2" HD8 carburettors, and a new exhaust system design. Servo-assisted brakes were also standard. Options remained otherwise the same, except that the standard interior trim was downgraded to Ambla vinyl, with leather as an extra.

In May 1964 the Phase II version of the Mark III was released, which gained ground clearance through a modified rear chassis. In March 1965 the car received separate indicators.

A total of 17,712 Mark IIIs were made.

We are pleased to offer this British Motor Corporation restored big healey, an 8 year old restoration, driven and enjoyed since it's ground-up restoration. It is still in excellent condition, meticulously maintained by it's two owners since it's re-birth. As shown in the photos, the car comes with all tools, top cover, tonneau and full car cover, as well as a booklet showing the restoration process.
