Austin Healey BJ8 Mk111 3000 1964


Specifications


Description

The Austin-Healey 3000 - a superb British sports car built from 1959 to 1967, and is the best known of the “ big Healey models. The car's bodywork was made by Jensen Motors, and the vehicles were assembled at the BMC Abingdon works.

The 3-litre 3000 was a highly successful car, which won its class in many European rallies in its heyday and is still raced in classic car competitions by enthusiasts today.

The Austin-Healey 3000 was introduced in 1959, replacing the Austin Healey 100-6. Despite its new name, the changes were minor compared to those between the original 100 and the 100-6. The wheelbase and body were unchanged, as were the models, a 2+2 and a two-seater.

An all time great, the 3000 Mark III was launched in October 1963, and remained in production until the end of 1967, when manufacture of Austin-Healeys ceased.

Beautifully curved, these magnificent machines were built in a very glamorous era - in the golden age of British Sports Cars. Both wonderful and marvelous, the Healey was the sports car that set the standard for a new generation.
