- The latest evolution of the 3000
- Perfect conditions
- 4 seaters version

After the 100/6 with its 3l straight-six engine, the 3000, known as the “Big Healey”, starts a successful career in 1959. The body remains the same as the elder but the 2.6l 6 cylinder engine is replaced by a 2912 cc with two SU carburetors and disc brakes at the front. The power of the engine is now increased at 124 hp. This initial model has been produced from 1959 to 1961, the year when the mark 2 has been fitted with three SU HS4 carburetors which rise the power of the engine at 132 hp. This version still had the same BT7 code for the 4 seats and BN7 for 2 seats. In 1962, the comfort of the car is improved when the plastic side screens are replaced by removable screens, and the easy handling convertible hood can be now closed on a new curved windscreen. The last evolution of the 3000 range is finally launched in 1964. With now 150 hp, the car will also be fitted with a power-assisted braking system.
The model we propose is a beautiful Austin Healey 3000 BJ8 Mk3 made in 1964. Originally built for the American market, the car has completely been overhauled few years ago. Both classy and aggressive, the look is very homogeneous and comes with a two-coloured combination red and white body, and a red imitation leather. The chrome and the wheels are in perfect conditions. At the beginning of the year, the shock dampers has been changed as well as the rear brakes. The convertible hood system also has been restored. This latest version of the Big Healey named BJ8 with an attractive estimate is an interesting opportunity to acquire one of the best success of the British design.
