The example on offer here, chassis number HBJ8L51590 is a 1967 Austin Healey 3000 MKIII. The car has benefited from a total restoration by marque specialist, British Restoration Corporation of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The car has been comprehensively restored to as new condition, with a few modifications to give it further usability. This example has quicker acceleration and shifting, a fully built engine, as well as a 5-speed transmission. The addition of a Mallory dual point distributor, high-intensity starter, Koolmat insulation, and a spin on oil filter all add to help the modern usability of the car as well. Not much is known on the early history of this vehicle but according to the included Heritage Certificate, the car was completed at the factory on May 12, 1967, and dispatched to the USA on July 15, 1967. It was originally finished in Metallic Golden Beige with a Black top and Black interior. Original factory-installed equipment included wire wheels, adjustable steering column, laminated windscreen, overdrive, road speed tires, and a heater. The car is now finished in the same elegant Golden Beige Metallic as when new although the top is now a wonderfully contrasting brown and the interior has been changed to a nice tan interior color which is understated while presenting extremely well. The artisans at BRC have now completed over 450 restorations and their careful craftsmanship shows through stunningly with this car. The car still presents astoundingly well, having only covered 758 miles since its restoration was completed in 2014. It has been maintained lovingly and cared for enthusiastically. This Austin Healey 3000 would be the perfect example to drive on nice days or to show at any British car club events.
