Austin Healey 3000 MKIII BJ8 Phase Two OGU 527D - 1966 | £64,000 | RHD
Scheduled to be converted RHD in our workshop and priced £64000 or £59000 LHD as is.
Originally built 19-20th October 1966 this 3000 MKIII BJ8.2 is finished in Black with Colorado Red two-tone, with Red seating and Red piled carpet. The car is supplied with its original engine, body, chassis and rear differential all matching numbers. As a late model this car features the ‘De-Luxe’ cockpit with rich Walnut dash. Very highly specified from new, factory equipment included extras of: adjustable steering column, tonneau cover, overdrive, wire wheels and more.
This example is presented in fantastic condition throughout, totally rust free and remarkable clean having been fully restored between 2011 – 2016 with less than 1,000 miles since. The quality and scale of the works were comprehensive, with the car taken back to bare metal, the chassis repaired, repainted in stages with the body removed and panels painted separately. The chrome is very good condition.
The engine was removed during the restoration and repainted and is believed to have been fully rebuilt, with the car displaying excellent oil pressure, making good power and idling smoothly. The gearbox and overdrive have just been refurbished and are as new.
Inside, the car totally rewired, the seats re-upholstered and new carpet fitted throughout. The roof is of the correct vinyl and fits well. The wood was all renewed or replaced during restoration and is excellent.
To drive the car is very nice, with new suspension and tight steering. The chassis feels very tight and as such the car rides and handles very nicely.
The car is provided with MOT, a heritage certificate of authenticity and many invoices on restoration works. A much recommended clean car.
