Model history

The Austin Healey is one of the most iconic British sports cars from the sixties. They had plenty of performance, charisma, exquisite styling and a first-class competition pedigree. The 3 litre was a very successful car which won many rallies and is the best known of the ‘Big Healey’ models.

This example

This particular Austin Healey 3000 was built on 26 August 1960 and despatched to San Fransisco, USA in September 1960. The car was equipped with optional wire wheels, overdrive, a heater, adjustable steering column and a laminated windscreen. In 1993, the car was exported to the Netherlands.

We are pleased to offer this great and very well prepared ‘Big Healey’, only 1.000 miles since mechanical overhaul by our well known Austin Healey specialist. The engine and gearbox have been overhauled and among many other things, the shock absorbers are renewed. The bodywork is in great condition with correct panel fit and totally rust free. Chrome is very nice. The interior has been professionally retrimmed. An lovely Moto-Lita wood-rim steering wheel is fitted which gives this Healey a more sporty appearance.

The car comes with a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate, lots of records of service history and a rare original hardtop with an excellent fit. The sidescreens and the four-seater tonneau with its correct stiffeners and transverse support rail are in very good condition.

A wonderful running and driving example, suitable for enjoyable open top motoring of rallying.

Dutch registered and APK (like MOT/TUV/CT).

Price is very tempting at Euro 59.500,-.
