Introduced in October 1963, the 3000 MKIII was the most refined version of the popular “Big Healey” model line and was the last of Donald Healey's creations. The MKIII offered amenities such as roll-up windows carried over from the BJ7 series, burled walnut veneer dash, revised center console, and updated rear suspension in Phase II examples. Built between 1963 and 1967, over 17,000 were produced between Phase I and Phase II cars. Achieving 150 horsepower via a twin SU carbureted inline 6 cylinder engine, the MKIII raced from 0-60 in 9.8 seconds; fast for the time period. Today, the MKIII variant is the most coveted of the 3000's and is one of the quintessential British motor cars representing lasting, and consistent value among car collectors.

The example on offer here, chassis number HBJ8L34415 and engine number 29KRUM16946 is a 1966 Austin Healey 3000 MKIII. According to the included BMIHT heritage certificate, the car was completed on December 29th, 1965, and was dispatched on January 7th, 1966 to Miami Florida in the United States. It was originally finished in Ivory White with a black top and black interior. Factory fitted equipment included wire wheels, heater, overdrive, adjustable steering column, road speed tires, and a laminated windscreen. Early history on the car is largely unknown but as the car currently sits it wears an older nut-and-bolt restoration completed to very high standards. The car is finished in Healey Blue with Cream colored coves and a blue interior and top. The restoration has won the car multiple awards and remains in excellent condition. The car has been continuously maintained and features a recent full engine rebuild leaving the Healey in fantastic running and driving order. Since 2005 the car has been regularly maintained by Cloverleaf Auto Services of Malvern, Pennsylvania. Regular maintenance has been kept up with, in addition to some other items which were corrected or attended to.

About Austin-Healey
Austin-Healey was a British sports car make created as a joint-venture between the Austin division of the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and the Donald Healey Motor Company.

First Healey model, Healey 100, was based on Austin A90 Atlantic mechanicals and developed by Donald Healey to be build in-house. They finished a single Healey Hundred for the 1952 London Motor Show. Leonard Lord, managing director of Austin was so impressed by the design that a deal was duly struck with Healey and the car was renamed the Austin-Healey 100 overnight. Austin Healey was born. 100 derived into 100-six, and different 3000 versions before they quit the production in 1968 as the basic design had finally become obsolete.
