The Austin Healey 3000 Sports Convertible is considered the most desirable in its final MKIII form which was first introduced in 1964. In addition to the major changes brought in with the MKIIA, the British car now had modern indicators, a better quality interior, power assisted brakes, a 150hp engine and a small rear seat. The latest car, although not the pinnacle of British standards, was a good value match in quality for Jaguar's E-Type. It had Ambla leathercloth seats, a wood veneer dash, lockable glovebox, centre console and wool carpet. Despite its extra weight, the MKIII was the quickest of the 3000's with 0-60 in 9.5 seconds and 122mph top speed. It was also quiter, easier to drive and came with much improved weather equipment. The car we offer was despatched from the Abingdon facility on 23 July 1966, as a LHD and destined for a dealer in Philadelphia. It is one of the last of a long line of illustrious 'Big Healeys' that helped form the backbone of the English sportscar legend. However, with nearly 40,000 spent in 2014 (after an initial restoration) this is no ordinary Austin-Healey. Built to classic rally specification, it would be a perfect car to enjoy regularity rallying events. The Healey's fantastic rallying pedigree cemented its reputation for durability and toughness, recalling the likes of Pat Moss, Ann Wisdom, Timo Makinen and Paddy Hopkirk to name but a few. The current specification of the car is as follows; Bodywork Louvered bonnet - Rally Spec Front wing side vents - Rally spec Front Grill - Rally Spec De-bumpered front and rear Light upgrade - Rally Spec Two-tone paint Leather bonnet straps Suspension Set of uprated suspension bushes Telescopic rear damper conversion Front anti roll bar with drop links Rebuilt steering box and arms Brakes Uprated front brake pads Braided brake lines New master cylinder New Servo Mechanical Stainless tubular manifold - Rally Spec Stainless side exit exhaust system Alternator upgrade Starter motor upgrade Electronic Ignition Silicon Triple Weber carburettors and inlet manifold Alloy trumpets Alloy rocker cover Lightened flywheel and uprated clutch Braided clutch line New master cylinder/slave cylinder Rebuilt gearbox and overdrive Standard ratio's H pattern Rebuilt engine with all new bearings/pistons etc. Lightened, balance and fully unleaded Uprated camshaft Rebuilt rear axle Standard ratio Fuel System Alloy Monza fuel cap Braided fuel lines and fittings Facet fuel pump Standard capacity fuel tank Cooling Alloy uprated Radiator Uprated electric cooling fan Silicon cooling hose set Front mounted oil cooler Barided oil cooler pipes and fittings Radiator Ducting Wheels and Tyres 72 spoke chrome wire wheels 185/70 +15 tyres 3 eared spinners The car presents extremely well and comes with a file of recent invoices, a Classic Cars magazine from 1998 where it featured (front page), a number of MOTs, a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate and FIA pass. The car is also accompanied by its fibreglass hard top and spare wheel with tyre.
