The 1967 was the last year of the Austin-Healey 3000 and arguably
the best. It has the biggest hp and is the most refined with roll
up windows, rear seating, and standard power disc brakes. This one
has been ground up restored. We acquired it from the Claude O
estate collection. He had a full-time mechanic maintaining his cars
because he wanted to be able to drive any car at any time.
EXTERIOR: Very handsome design. The body is mint! No rust or
damage. It fits right; it's straight. Gorgeous Ice Blue paint. The
metal flake is laid out evenly; the clear coat is polished like
glass. The chrome is all new or very good original. Sparkling
chrome wire wheels with knock off spinners. Lucas headlights. Dark
blue convertible top is in excellent shape. Original windshield,
roll up windows.
INTERIOR: Door panels are mint. Real burl wood dash with Smith
gauges, it's all in excellent shape including the knobs and levers.
Excellent blue carpet. It has a nice console with the manual
shifter and a walnut knob. The bucket seats are correctly
reupholstered and has chrome piping. Referred to as "an occasional
4 seater". It has rear seats or a fold up rear deck. The steering
wheel is original and showing some age.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: 6 cylinder motor. The horsepower was increased
to 150 in 1967 with a high lift cam and dual SU HD8 carbs. The
engine compartment was all taken apart and restored. It was
correctly restored to factory specs. Correct colors, cloth wrapped
wires, the tags are all there. It runs great!
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Clean and complete. It's painted nicely. Has a
correct liner kit. Matching wire wheel and BFG tire for a spare.
Battery is located in the trunk and has a factory disconnect
switch. Weatherstrip is soft.
UNDERSIDE: It looks like it was all apart and restored. The metal
appears to be rock solid and clean. It was painted the body color.
The front end steering and suspension looks like it was apart and
rebuilt. The brake system was gone through. It has disc in front
with slotted rotors, e-brake cables are hooked up. It has the
correct dual exhaust system. The motor, trans and rear are clean
and repainted. It has the optional electric overdrive.
I understand why these cars are valuable. It has really attractive
style in and out. For an English sports car it has good power and
nice features. This one looks to be a really nice example. It would
be a great time shifting the gears on a nice crisp morning in the
I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for
virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant
amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my
professional impression of the vehicle. Our salesmen are happy to
assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are
answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video
that explains the car's condition in detail. **These cars are
displayed in a museum. If interested in a particular car, make an
appointment with a salesman to see that car. Without an appointment
there is an admission fee to enter the showroom. If you buy a car,
your admission will be refunded, and you will be given a 1 year
