Description

Lot #976 - The Austin-Healey 3000 MK III Ph. II BJ-8 sports convertible was the final variation of a long line of Big Healey sports cars starting with the 100-4 model of 1953. The MK III was produced from 1964-1967 and was arguably the fastest, safest, most comfortable riding model of all Healeys. This is evident in the market today, as this model commands the highest price of the production cars and exceptional, well restored examples are very much sought after. Purchased last year from only its second California owner, this lovely Grand Touring Big Healey has just completed an extensive and thorough restoration by premier marque specialist Kurt Tanner Restorations. Finished in the ultra desirable and attractive period Aston-Martin color scheme of California Sage with linen colored trim, this exceptional MK III convertible features a 4-speed overdrive gearbox, chrome/stainless wire wheels, adjustable steering and a heater. Details of the restoration include new show-quality Sikkens two-stage body and paint, completely new interior, top, top boot, chrome, rubber, brakes, fuel system, re-plated hardware, wiring harness and electrics, detailed driveline and undercarriage, stainless exhaust system, chrome wire wheels and tires. A superb example of the Austin-Healey marque, this BJ-8 MK III Ph. II convertible represents exceptional value. It has completed test miles only since its recent, fresh, top quality restoration and is now ready for immediate use and enjoyment.
