Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this spectacular 1966
Austin Healey BJ8 3000 Mark III in amazing condition. This car has
been completely restored; it looks amazing, runs great, and is an
excellent driver. This Austin Healey is priced to sell, always
turns heads, and gets a TON of attention going down the road. The
car is finished in the beautiful and highly desirable color
combination of Healey Blue over Blue with a Blue top. This is the
correct and original color scheme as verified by the British Motor
Industry Heritage Trust Certified Copy of a Factory Record. Please
peruse all of the photos, numbers, video, and information below to
get a true sense of how nice, clean, and striking this Austin
Healey really is. This Austin Healey comes with some service
records. There is a receipt from March 2018 showing that the car
received a complete fluid service. All of the fluids were changed
at that time including the engine oil, gearbox, rear axle, brakes,
clutch hydraulics, and cooling system. All of the chassis points
were lubed. The tires were balanced and the wheel bearings were
greased. The shop also road tested the car and noted that all
lights, suspension, and steering systems all checked out fine.
The car also comes with a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust
Certified Copy of a Factory Record. There is a stamping on the
engine pictured below, "29K-RU-H/8639." This is the correct number
according to the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Factory
Record. The body number, 78808, is also correct and pictured
The removable soft-top, (hood) and blue tonneau cover are included

We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our Corvettes come
from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give
the vehicle the same care and attention as they did. We invite and
encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car
inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each picture. We
photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel
confident about your purchase. If you have a question about the
Mark II, just give us a call.
The Healey Blue exterior is in marvelous condition. As one can see
in the photos the finish has dazzling gloss, deep shine, smooth
finished, and beautiful paint quality. The chrome bumpers and other
bight work on the car look magnificent with a brilliant finish and
no rust or pitting. Both doors open and shut nicely. The chrome
wire knock off wheels are in excellent condition with a great
finish and no curb rash. The tires are sized 165R15 with 95% tread
left. The frame and everything else on the car is completely solid.
I encourage any buyer to closely inspect the many underside photos
to see how clean the car is. There are absolutely no rust issues
with the Healey what so ever and the underside looks great.

The Blue interior of the Austin Healey is in fantastic condition.
The seats look lovely with no holes, splits, or excessive wear. The
seat shows just minimal wear in the typical area on the bolster
where the driver gets in and out. The carpet is in great condition
with no rips or holes. The gauge faces are nice and clean and the
lenses are crisp and clear. The chrome and other brightwork inside
the car has a terrific finish and looks great overall. The dash and
console are in excellent condition with no fading or sun damage.
The door panels are in excellent condition and the door pulls are
solid. The wood grain inside looks nice with no delamination. The
convertible top (hood) and tonneau cover are in excellent condition
with no tears or holes. The rear window in soft-top looks great. It
is clear and not scratched, foggy, or yellowed.
The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the
This 3000 MK III seems to be in good mechanical condition. The car
starts every time, runs well, and idles smooth. The car is an
awesome driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds.
In the video below one can see the car accelerating on the highway
up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears, braking to
stoplight, accelerating away, and going through some curves. Please
note that it shifts properly, there are no strange vibrations, and
the car performs quite well overall. The brakes are responsive and
do not pull to one side or the other. The transmission shifts well
and the shifter is tight. The clutch feels good. This Austin Healey
has plenty of power for it's size and is quite nimble. Also, the
engine compartment is beautifully clean, detailed, and correct as
one can see in the photos.
The horn works as do all the exterior lights, indicators, and
wipers. All of the gauges work. The fan for the heater works. The
dash (panel) lights work as one can see in the video. The
headlights and brights work. As with many other older carbureted
cars, this Austin Healey is quite cold blooded, it starts every
time, but it can take a while if the car has been sitting for a
while and is cold. Not enough can be said as to how much of a
pleasure it is to drive this car, especially with the top down on a
beautiful day and the 4-speed transmission.
Overall, this 1966 Austin Healey 3000 MK III is in brilliant
restored condition. We have this Austin Healey priced to sell. This
particular 3000 MK III is highly desirable in the correct and
original color combination of Healey Blue over Blue. The market on
the 3000 Austin Healey's is very hot right now. The value of these
cars has gone up exponentially in recent years. They are solid
investments for a collector. This is especially true for highly
sought-after examples like this restored Mark III. This Austin
Healey always gets a ton of attention driving down the road. It is
very apparent that the vehicle has been well taken care of by its
previous owners. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several
years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal
