The Healey 3000 is a car of British descent built from 1959 to 1967. Popularly known as the 'Big Healey,' the bodywork is a result of Jensen Motors Craftsmanship that was assembled at BMS's MG Works in Abingdon. The Mark III in particular, made its debut in 1964 with increased power and power-assisted braking as a standard option. Known for their big power, the Big Healey was one of the stars of its time, being one of Austin Healey's most admired and sought-after models. This one-of-a-kind example resides in Pennsylvania with 53,647 miles to its name, waiting for adventures that lie ahead. It features an engine that was restored just a few years ago, added to what was a ground-up restoration with many original parts and even the original documentation intact.
The exterior comes in classic sports coupe fashion and is painted British racing green. The garage-kept example has been with its current owner for over twenty years, who reports that its maintenance and full service have been recently completed. This 1967 Austin Healey 3000 MK3 also included a spare tire, new battery, partial roll bar along with all original jacks, and both tonneaus that complete this ground-up restoration. To complete the look, this car sits on a set of multi-spoke wheels that are wrapped in new Michelin tires. The black interior looks equally impressive, sporting black leather seats and door panels and a wooden dashboard and chrome accents for a refined finish.
Responsible for power is a 2.9L C-Series 16 engine capable of producing up to 150BHP at 5200RPM via a four-speed manual transmission. To put that into perspective, the owner states that “the car runs like a rocket right now.”
