Description
 
If you seek out the unique and the rare you should look no further! You are checking out a 1966 Austin Healey 3000 Mark III. If your not sure what that is then have no fear because these rare little roadsters probably dont make many appearances at your local car show. Although they were originally built in Great Britain they were meant to appeal to an American audience. A brief history on these classics is taken from speedace.info to get you more familiar with the car. Austin-Healey was a brand of sports car. The marque was established through a joint venture arrangement set up in 1952 between Leonard Lord of the Austin division of the British Motor Corporation and Donald Healey, a renowned automotive engineer and designer. Donald Healey ran a small works company, producing only a small number of cars. Healey showed a car at the Earls Court motor show in 1952 called the 100. On seeing this car the general publics enthusiasm for the car, Austin thought fit to produce the car at Longbridge. This car later went on to be known as the Austin-Healey 100. This was the original big Healey with a 2.6 litre four-cylinder engine. In 1958 the Sprite was released, the much-loved Frog-Eyed-Sprite, have enthusiasts spread around the globe. The headlights were originally intended to be retractable, but due to the costs involved the idea was shelved, and they were just bolted to the bonnet! A good job too, I think. The public sure liked the car, because the company sold almost 40,000. A more powerful version of the big Healey launched in 1959, the Austin-Healey 3000. In 1972 Austin-Healey ceased building cars, However Healeys name lived on with the Jensen-Healey, and Sprite parts were still to be used in the MG Midget. Although Austin-Healeys were built in Great Britain, they were designed to appeal to Americans-in fact, Austin-Healey exported 89 percent of their cars to the United States. Among these automobiles, the 100 and 3000 Series-or Big Healeys-produced from 1953 through 1968 were the fastest and most glamorous. The car is coated in Pewter paint with white coves and a single blue and yellow stripe. All of the exterior lights on the car are in place and working correctly. The chrome on this classic is all shining beautifully with no major issues. The car has a great stance and rides on spoke wheels with knock off style center caps. The dark blue top looks great with the paint and is very easy to raise and lower. The inline 6 engine runs very well and starts up with no problem. It has a nice smooth idle and has plenty of performance. The interior on the car is complete in dark blue and both the front and rear seats are in great condition. The center console houses the shifter which operates the manual transmission very smoothly. The dash is in the all original style with wooden inserts which are still in great shape. The gauges, knobs, and switches are all in there correct place and are operating just as they should. This is one cool car that deserves to be in a nice collection. It wont be for sale for long! This is a great roadster for the great price of $38,250.00!
