Chassis #: HBJ8L30063
Sold for $96,250 at 2007 Vintage Motor Cars at Amelia Island.
Sold for $77,000 at 2019 Worldwide Auctioneers : Scottsdale, Arizona.
This 1965 Austin-Healey 3000 BJ8 MK III was offered for sale at the 2007 RM Auctions held in Amelia Island, Florida. The car was offered without reserve and estimated to sell between $90,000 - $110,000. The car is powered by a 2912cc overhead valve six-cylinder engine capable of producing 150 horsepower. There is a four-speed manual gearbox with overdrive and a front disc and rear drum brakes.

This car has been treated to a complete restoration with many of the components being rebuilt or replaced. It is a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certified matching number car. It is finished in Colorado Red.

The BJ8 was introduced in 1963 and remained in production until 1967. The BJ8 brought many improvements over its predecessor, the BJ7. The BJ8 included a twin two-inch SU HD8 carburetors on the six-cylinder engine capable of producing 150 horsepower and 173 foot-pounds of torque. The exhaust system was new and practical. It was repositioned which gave it greater ground clearance. The BJ7 had introduced roll-up windows in the Austin-Healey and continued in the BJ8.

At auction, the estimated value proved to be accurate as the car was sold for $96,250.
