The final version of the of the "Big Healey" six-cylinder cars was
the BJ8, introduced in 1963 and built during the last four years of
production. The BJ8 proved to be the most refined Healey to date as
roll up windows, a wood dash and a rear seat were added to the 3000
Series Austin Healey. The three liter inline engine boasted 150
horsepower aided by two SU HD8 Carburetors. The 4 speed manual
transmission features an overdrive setting in gear 3 and 4. All
this works together producing a top speed in excess of 115mph.
GR Auto Gallery is pleased to offer this very original, unmolested
1965 Austin Healey 3000 MKIII BJ8 for consideration. The car is
attractively finished in silver metallic paint over its blue
interior with gold piping. The car shows 79625 miles on the
odometer and given the excellent original presentation of the car,
these miles are believed to be original. The exterior does appear
to have received a repaint many years ago; the trim, bumpers,
grille, bright work, wire wheels all appear to be original and un
refurbished. The bonnet, door fit and deck lid all exhibit
excellent body fit indicating that the car has never been taken
apart. The interior remains highly original, if not all original.
The original seating material remains excellent still retaining the
factory gold piping, the original wood dash, original signature
banjo style steering wheel, console, carper, smiths gauges,
shifter, trim and bright word remains excellent showing the perfect
amount of patina. Other highlights include original full tonneau,
the top apprears to have been replaced at one time and is
excellent, and the unrestored frame and underside shows excellent
with excellent structural integrity.
Mechanically, this Healey is extremely fit. The 3.0 liter inline 6
cylinder engine is very healthy, runs very smooth and pulls strong.
The 4 Speed with overdrive transmission shifts precisely, the
suspension remains tight and steering it true.
It is important to note, that this is not a show car. This is a
consistently well -maintained car that remains highly original in
many many areas. The structure is excellent throughout, the
drivability is wonderful and this Healey is priced to sell. The car
also has a file with previous owner history with hand written
letters back and forth with perspective buyers, service history,
old photos etc.
A great, unmolested example offered here.
