"Hi Jesmond & Gloria, The car arrived yesterday. I am very impressed! - She's lovely. She must have been well packed as there is no damage at all, and nothing has gone missing. The guy who dropped the car off on a transporter was really impressed too, I think he wanted it for himself. Jesmond, your description of the car was spot-on, the Velox is just what I had hoped for.In the UK these cars are hard to find, and one this good is a real rarity. I am very pleased, and look forward to many happy years of ownership."Richard Crossley, Thamesport, United Kingdom
The Austin-Healey 3000 was BMC's sporting flagship for almost a decade, and many detail changes were made along the way. The 3000 name was first used in 1959 when the C-Series engine from the 100/6 was upgraded to 2.9-litres (and a nominal for marketing 3-litres), for use in the uprated Farina bodied Westminsters.
The 3000 boasted more power, an improved gearbox and disc brakes on the front.The best was saved till last though, with the Austin-Healey Mk3, launched in 1964. Although the looks remained largely the same this was the most powerful Austin-Healey with 148bhp for a maximum speed of 121mph.
