Description

Lot #766 - The Austin-Healey 3000 Mark III was the final variation of a handsome line of British sports cars that stared in 1953. It offered roll-up windows, a luxurious interior with a walnut dashboard, radio console, arm rest and arm bars, and an excellent folding softtop. Mechanical refinements included power brakes, the best centershift transmission and a 150hp engine. This vehicle offered for sale here is a very rare, factory black/red example. This stunning color scheme suits the car handsomely. Factory options include a 4-speed overdrive gearbox, upgraded 60-spoke chrome wire wheels with newer tires, adjustable steering wheel and a heater. The paintwork presents very well. Recent restoration work includes complete new leather interior, carpets, top, mostly new chrome and rubber, new windshield, detailed engine compartment and under carriage. A very good running and driving car with overdrive. This vehicle presents a good opportunity to acquire the most popular and desirable Austin-Healey production model, the late BJ-8 sports convertible. This car is sold with a file of receipts, knock-off hammer, reprint of owner's manual,top boot and bag.
