The Austin Healey 3000 MKIII was launched in October 1963 and remained in production until the end of 1967. Designated the ‘BJ8’ the 2+2 MKIII was the most powerful and luxurious of the ‘big Healeys’ with a standard walnut veneer dash, wind up windows and a 2912cc 150bhp engine. Added power came from a new camshaft and valve springs, twin SU 2” HD8 carburettors and a new exhaust system design. Servo assisted brakes were also standard as was the Overdrive gearbox and ‘Ambla’ vinyl trim.
According to the BMIHT Heritage Certificate this Austin Healey was built in September 1965 to LHD specification in Healey Blue with blue Ambla trim and blue hood with factory extras, wire wheels, overdrive, heater, adjustable steering column, laminated windscreen, whitewall tyres and blue tonneau cover. It was exported to Chicago Illinois USA shortly afterwards where it remained until 1991 when it was re-patriated to the UK. It underwent a full body off chassis rebuild and mechanical overhaul including conversion to RHD by Austin Healey specialist ‘John Chatham Cars’ of Bristol. Since completion in 1995 this Healey has covered just 20,000 miles and has been regularly maintained by several marque specialists including ‘Classic Chrome’ and ‘Rawles Motorsport’. Apart from the original importer Mr Edward Bracey, it has had just three previous keepers including an Austin Healey club official who owned the car for ten years, parting with it in 2016 when came into the hands of its current keeper. This Austin Healey 3000 MKIII comes with a comprehensive history file including many invoices, MOT certificates and a photographic record of the re-build.
