1966 Austin-Healey 3000

Chassis number : H-BJ8-L/32843

Share on:

Sold for $123,200 at 2022 RM Sothebys : Amelia Island.
The Austin-Healey 3000 was introduced in 1959, ceased production in 1967, and enjoyed a steady series of upgrades along the way. Among them were the Mark III BJ8 cars which incorporated power brakes, a softer trailing arm-rear suspension, and the 150 horsepower engine. This particular example was completed in early September of 1965 and sent to a dealer in New York later that same month. It left the factory wearing Dark British Racing Green over Black, wire wheels, Roadspeed tires, an overdrive, a heater, a laminated windscreen, and an adjustable steering column.

In 2019, this Austin-Healey was sent to the shop of Healy Lane Restoration in Marcola, Oregon where over the course of the next year, the vehicle was stripped down to its bare chassis and completely rebuilt. The exterior was painted in a combination of Golden Beige Metallic over red Ambla vinyl. There are Dunlop-style 60-spoke wire wheels at all four corners.

Very few miles have been added to the odometer since the restoration was completed.
