WE JUST GOT A VERY UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH A VERY NICE AND PRETTY RARE CONCOURS REGISTERED BRONZE 1967 AUSTIN HEALEY 3000 MKIII THIS IS A 1967 BJ8 Mark III Phase II. Last year they were made and the largest engine ever produced. 150 HP top speed 120 mph. Previous owner was English and owned the car 30 years. Only driven in the rain twice. Here is a small list of what has been done to the classic Austin Healey.

New parts or upgrades; entire brake system /new servo, fluids recently bled, new electronic ignition under passenger dash, electrical ground changed to negative, wheels and 72 spokes are chromed stainless, rear end upgraded to 3.54:1 keeping the car at lower non taxing RPM, electric OD, new stainless exhaust, new 6 blade radiator fan, racing style wing mirrors, new insulation in floor and transmission tunnel, rockers were rebushed, great compression in all 6 cylynders, 60 psi oil pressure in all 6 cylinders in OD above 40 mph, oil filter changed to a spin on, chrome valve cover comes /the car, the OEM green valve cover is on the car for Concours judging which won a bronze at the annual 2014 conclave at the Homestead in VA., chrome air cleaners, electric system replaced, gas tank, drive shaft, fuel pump. New glass windows, and wind screens, new larger tires, Vredestein 180X70X15R, wheel bearings, springs band springs and king pins, stripped and painted all panels to subframe, all rubber seals, weather sripping and trim, interior panels, seats (except rear seats) carpeting, burled wood dash, and radio, boot has been redone, steering wheel, tonneau cover with reinforcing bar, new Stayfast convertible top, boot cover and storage bags for all, Smith gauges refurbished, Exceptional paint job done in original Colorado Red, no nicks or dents, engine bay is clean and show quality, boot contains spare tire/chrome wheel, car jack, spin off tools, original oil canister, EOM rear end, extra keys, Healey repair books, owners manual. Lastly, I’ll wager there’s not a Healey out there that rides and steers better that this one. I took the car to Hendrix Wire and Wheel in Greensboro, NC to get new tires , to balance, true wheels and drums on the rear. He used a lathe to do the job. The results were incredible. If you have a chance to drive it you’ll see! The current owner has copies of all the work that has been done on the car since he bought it in 2014. The only thing I know of that one might want to address is that 2nd gear comes out of place sometimes while coasting down a slight grade. I’m told it is a simple repair. There is a nylon ball and spring that holds it in 2nd gear and the spring has lost it’s tension. I had just finished insulating the transmission/drive train tunnel and did not want to disturb my work. Everything is as near perfect as a 50 year old English car can be. Anyone who really knows these cars or has owned one etc.. will understand that there’s quite a bit invested into this car and the value is there. We’re currently offering this beautiful classic for ONLY $79,999 OBO and it’s worth every cent of that and more with the quality of this car. The miles are only 55,xxx which are extremely low for a car of this age obviously and the photos will tell alot. Any more information that a qualified buyer would want I can get and we can also provide dealer services such as classic car financing, pre-buy inspections, transportation door to door insured and covered etc… so it’s a beautiful car at a beautiful price and has been taken care of extremely well.

P.S. have the EOM rear end, generator, distributor, chrome valve cover, and all sorts of books (owners manual), Moss catalogs, repair books, spare parts, specialty oils, gauges
Etc, etc, etc.
