The early four-cylinder cars were superseded in 1956 by a six-cylinder model, appropriately named the 100/6, and would remain in production until 1959 when the name was over-bored to 2,912cc, producing 125 horsepower at 4,600 RPM, thus the name Healey 3000. The Mark II was introduced in 1961 introduced improved practicality with a fixed foldaway top and winding windows, while the engine gained triple SU carburetors and a revised camshaft, increasing horsepower by 8 bhp. The less popular two-seater version was dropped leaving just the 2+2 version. From November of 1961, the 3000 came with a new gearbox, a development which at last moved the gear lever to the center of the transmission tunnel. The 3000 MK III followed in early 1964, bringing with it well-fitted carpets, bucket seats, 148 bhp engine, and a varnished timber dashboard. The Austin Healey 3000 Mk III BJ8 models retained the essence of its classic short deck, long hood sports roadster persona, but had matured from minimalistic to comfortable and civilized, with 2+2 seating and amenities directed towards the important North American market. Equipped with roll-up side windows and an easily operable soft top, the convertible 'tourer' was safe and enjoyable for daily driving, albeit with that 'English quality' shared by a number of contemporary brands including Triumph, MG, and Jaguar. Year-round use was possible with the factory hardtop. Solidifying its athletic credentials, the low-slung, sports car was rather successful in international rallying and racing, including Le Mans, the Targa Florio, and Sebring. Production of the 3000 would continue through 1968. Standard equipment included power brakes, overdrive transmission, and a heater. It had a factory base price of $3550, and the overhead-valve engine offered 150 horsepower and 173 ft-lbs of torque. Disc brakes were in the front with drums at the rear. The steel ladder chassis had a coil spring front suspension and leaf spring rear setup. 1967 Austin Healey 3000 MKIII BJ8 is the last of the "big Healey". With its inline 6 cylinder 3 liter motor producing 150hp mated to a factory overdrive transmission.
