With a blue-over-blue color scheme, this attractive MKIII 3000 BJ8 was given a recent nut-and-bolt restoration in the early 2000s. There are front disc brakes, an overdrive transmission and a 2912 cc six-cylinder overhead valve engine offering 150 horsepower.
In 2009, this Austin Healey was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was expected to sell for $55,000 - $75,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the lot had been sold for the sum of $55,000 including buyer's premium.
