Sold for $68,200 at 2007 Christie's Exceptional Motor Cars at the Monterey Jet Center.
This 1966 Austin-Healey 3000 MKIII Phase 2 was offered for sale at the 2007 Christie's Auction of 'Exceptional Motor Cars at the Monterey Jet Center.' It is finished in Cobra 'guardsman' blue with blue leather interior and blue soft top. Power is from the six-cylinder engine with overhead valves and twin SU carburetors. The nearly 150 horsepower is sent to the rear wheels with the help of a four-speed manual gearbox with overdrive. Disc brakes are in the front and power-assisted hydraulically operated drums are in the rear.

This car has two-plus-two seating, roll-up windows, varnished timber dashboard and bucket seats. It used to be owned by singer Alan Jackson and was well cared for while in his possession.

At auction this car was offered without reserve and estimated to sell for $60,000 - $80,000. The estimate proved to be accurate, as a buyer was found and the lot was sold for $68,200 including buyer's premium.
