1965 AUSTIN-HEALEY 3000 MK III CABRIOLET - €50,000

  • 46713 1

The Austin-Healey 3000 MkIII was produced from 1964 to 1967, totaling 17,712 units. Nowadays very few have the privilege of having a unit like this in their garage, this being a totally exclusive piece taken care of with care and with a simply perfect state. The small cabin is a piece of the British Isles exported to embarrass the inhabitants of the continent. In front of the leather seat, placed very close to the big steering wheel, the 4 clocks with crude background remind you of the imperial habits in a matter of weights and measures. The speedometer is graduated in miles, the oil pressure in pounds and the water temperature in degrees ... Fahrenheit. The switch of the headlights is a small bakelite mushroom that you have to pull to activate the position lights and then turn to put the crossing lights. For the long ones there is a switch that is activated with the left foot under the clutch !. Another small chromed one in the center of the steering wheel! Operates the turn signals. As for the hand brake, it is a dubious excuse to rub the butt of our companion. One of two, or European rationalism reacts badly, and it is immediate divorce, or English charm works, and this sum of discomforts suggests a new aesthetic, a driving pleasure ... different. Already with the engine running, the lap counter is expressed, fortunately, in rpm: red zone at 5200, a limit that extends another 700 rpm the control of the overdrive available on the dashboard. Both his name (overdrive means, literally ... 'drive more') and the brand that made it (Laycock de Normanville), very pleasantly perfumed the atmosphere of pure mechanical romanticism. Like the double clutch and the tip-heel maneuver necessary to engage the first, without synchronizing, and the second, which scratches something in the reductions. Fortunately, the great torque allows us to recover from very low without reducing, and accelerations and maximum speed (184kmh) are, even today, bright. As for the sound, the six in line, no matter how rustic, unfolds the flexible, full song of an accomplice mechanic. A beautiful voice that accompanies each nuance of carburation to the rhythm of the accelerator and of our right foot. A serious noise and out of the ordinary, that multiplied by 1000 cars / hour would be unbearable, but so, alone in the field, it seems more like a gift to the astonished strollers. The recipe is clear: a simple, compact and low chassis, a robust and powerful engine. To start 2.6 l. and 4 cylinders in the primitive Austin-Healey 100, after the 6-cylinder Westminster, with 2.6 liters in the 100/6 and 3 (and up to 150 HP) in the 3000 treated here, also known as Big Healey.
