AUSTIN HEALEY 1966 MKIII BJ8 ROADSTER
We proudly present this lovely 1966 Austin Healey MKIII, finished in Red with black Ambla Vinyl interior trim. The 3000 sports convertible Mark III was announced in February 1964 with power increased from 136 bhp to 150 bhp by a new higher lift camshaft and SU HD8 carburettors. Power-assisted braking became standard instead of optional. The new car's fascia displayed its speedometer and tachometer directly in front of the driver.
Austin Healey 3000's have a long competition history, and raced at most major racing circuits around the world, including Sebring , Le Mans , and Mount Panorama Circuit, Bathurst. The BMC competitions department rallied the 3000 from its introduction, but the development of the works cars effectively ended in 1965.
The Austin Healey 3000 is one of the most evocative British classic cars around a genuinely appealing and practical "Grand Tourer" with a good sized lockable.
This car has been owned by a local gentleman since 2015 and used sparingly, supplied with a good history file including a large number of invoices for works carried out over the years.
The car has been fitted with a Dennis Welch Motorsport Safety steering box & adjustable steering column (£1812.00), fitted with Dennis Welch rocker cover.
The car has just undergone a full mechanical refresh in November 2020 by marque specialists JME Healey Ltd at a cost of over £11,000 so this car is on the button, in lovely condition and driving superbly, supplied freshly serviced and detailed ready to be enjoyed.
