For Sale: 1966 Austin-Healey 3000 in St Louis, Missouri

Vehicle Description

It's Alive Automotive is pleased to offer this exceptional example of the Austin Healey 3000 Mark III phase 2. The phase 2 cars were built from 1964 through end of production in 1967 and are the final iteration of this famous sports car. Many will argue that these last Austin Healeys were the best of the big Healeys. Except for rare low production models, these final versions of the 3000 carry the highest market values as well. Some of that is their attraction to people who want a classic British sports car that is both usable and comfortable. In terms of value, history says this about this car. The next owner of this car should be able to enjoy it for years to come and then get his or her money back, if not more, when it's time to part company. However, we hope you won't look at this car as a place to invest money. The real return here is the pleasure of ownership and enjoyment of driving or touring in a car like this. The memories you make in a classic Austin Healey like this are priceless. The neat thing is that after a memory making trip, it's still there in your garage in all of its beauty to behold and waiting to please you again. If you envision a road trip in this big Healey, it's worth noting that it has a very neat period folding luggage rack. Offered as a factory option, it attaches without any holes drilled in the boot lid or body. It holds luggage level and folds forward when the boot lid is raised. It can be easily removed as well. This car has the power to run with modern traffic and its overdrive transmission keeps the engine relaxed and quiet at highway speeds. That's not to say it doesn't produce the unique and pleasing in-line six cylinder sound out of its exhaust under hard acceleration. Our example here has been restored to a high standard. It is solid without any rust issues and with high quality paint work. It starts, runs, drives, and stops very well. From an overall condition standpoint, we rate this car as a solid #2. As such it is attractively priced below market and ready to use and enjoy. We invite you to visit our facility and inspect and drive this fine car. We're only one mile from the St. Louis airport on a major Interstate so it's convenient access whether flying or driving. We happily facilitate third party inspections as well. To see this car or for more questions, call or text Mike at 573-579-4617 or email to [email protected] Thanks for looking!
