|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
Eight more Horsepower would be gained in the early 1960s. Starting in November of 1961, the 3000 came with a new gearbox which finally had the gear level at the center of the transmission tunnel. In January of 1962, the 2+2 MKII Convertible, also known as the MKIIA, appeared, which brought with it many comfort features such as winding windows, swiveling quarter-lights and fixed foldaway hood.
In 1962, production of the MKII ceased after 5,096 examples of the 2+2s and 355 two-seaters had been created. The convertible version continued until the introduction of the 3000 MKIII in 1963.
A restoration was performed on this car during the mid 1990s. It has seen very little use since the mid-1960s and still shows very well in modern times. In 2007 it was brought to the Bonhams Auction, An Important Sale of Collectors' Motorcars and Automobilia, held at the Quail Lodge Resort & Golf Club in Carmel, California. This 1962 Austin Healey 3000 MkIIA Convertible was sold for a high bid of $52,000 plus premium and taxes.
