The Austin-Healey was born from the Healey Hundred, first shown at the 1952 Earls Court Motor Show. British Motor Industry legend Sir Leonard Lord, soon convinced Healey that Austin should build the car and thus gave birth to the Austin-Healey 100. The Austin-Healey's design and appeal as a true British Sports Car, resulted in strong sales across the globe in the late 1950's and early 60's. Over time the design and drive train matured to the 6-cylinder Austin-Healey 3000, which featured a more comfortable interior, improved braking, and suspension. 1967 would marque the last production model year of the Austin-Healey 3000, the last of the great "big Healeys" and is considered by many to be the pinnacle of the Austin-Healey brand.
The 1967 Austin-Healey 3000 Mark III Phase II Roadster featured here is finished in gorgeous Ivory White with a beautiful original black interior. This extremely rare find has only traveled 55,794 miles from new and still wears most of its original paint. A few years ago this motorcar was subject to an extensive mechanical rejuvenation by an Austin Healey judge. This marque specialist was tasked with ensuring the car's drivability while going to great lengths to preserve its incredible originality, using only the best parts available including numerous New Old Stock components. Since completed this magnificent motorcar has been shown at numerous Concours shows and was the recipient of the coveted Palmetto Award of Preservation at the 2013 Hilton Head Concours d'Elegance. Accompanying this investment-grade Austin Healey 3000 Mark III is its tools, brochure, mechanical restoration receipts, British Motor Industry Heritage certificate, previous registrations and much more.
