Vehicle History Report

1966 Austin-Healey 3000 MkIII BJ8 convertible was the subject of a concours-correct restoration. The vehicle was discovered in Tacoma, WA, where the past owner had kept the car in garage-storage since 1974. The marque specialists at Healey Lane Restoration in Marcola, OR, completed the restoration in just over a year. All the vehicle's major components and subsystems were gone through, resealed and reconditioned, and a new top and fitted tonneau were installed. The car was finished in bold Golden Beige and is complemented by a red Ambla vinyl interior for a striking color contrast. Under the hood is the "Big Healey" 3.0-liter inline-6 engine. Rated at 150hp, it is equipped with twin SU carburetors, ceramic-coated intake and exhaust manifolds, and a polished stainless exhaust system. The engine is paired to a 4-speed manual transmission with an electronic Laycock overdrive. A Phase II model, this car received an updated rear suspension from the earlier Phase I cars. To allow for improved exhaust clearance, the 3000s had their Panhard bar design swapped out for a torsion bar setup in 1964. This is most recognizable from the rear, where it is noticeable that the car sits up higher than Phase 1 Austin-Healeys. The car is also equipped with front disc brakes and a power booster. Inside the cabin, the Smiths gauges were rebuilt and reside in a burled walnut dash. The cabin also boasts a heater, and the steering wheel is adjustable. Adding to the alluring aesthetics are the Dunlop-style 60-spoke bright wire wheels with spinner centers wrapped in Nexen radial tires. Exponentially refined compared to Austin-Healey's fledgling BN1 100 sports cars, the 3000 MkIII BJ8 convertible represents the final evolution of the "Big Healey." This 3000 MkIII BJ8 is ready for touring and showing with classic British motoring at its very best, with stunning clean lines. The last of this style of automobile prior to impact bumpers and all the modifications that came in the 1970s
