The 1966 Austin Healey 3000 is a classic British sports car that was part of the „Big Healey“ series produced by the British Motor Corporation (BMC). It has a classic, timeless design with a long, sleek bonnet and distinctive front grille. The soft-top and tonneau covers of this model are in good condition and fit tightly.

The car has a compact, two-seater cockpit with bucket seats and a simple, functional dashboard.

The 1966 Austin Healey 3000 is powered by a 2.9-liter (2,912 cc) inline-six-cylinder engine. This engine, with twin SU carburetors, produces around 150 horsepower. It is mated to a four-speed manual transmission with an overdrive.

With its powerful engine and relatively light weight, the Austin Healey 3000 is known for its spirited performance. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in around 9 seconds and has a top speed of approximately 190 kph. The Mk3 also has power-assisted braking, with drum breaks in the rear and disk brakes in the front.

The 3000 features a front independent suspension with coil springs and a rear semi-elliptical leaf spring suspension. It has responsive steering and a well-balanced chassis, providing a confident and enjoyable driving experience.

The interior of the 1966 Austin Healey 3000 is sleek in design, in line with the sports car ethos of the time. It features a wooden dashboard with a set of essential gauges and toggle switches, giving it a classic, vintage feel.

This 3000 Mk3 has a clean and original interior, including the Ambla vinyl seat and a wooden steering wheel. The dashboard and electronics function and the car has been modified to conform to the German TUV requirements (e.g. small stickers for kmph added to the tachometer).

The Austin Healey 3000 is highly regarded in the classic car community. It is considered one of the last great British sports cars before emission and safety regulations began to impact performance and design. Well-maintained examples of the 3000, especially those in original or restored condition, are sought after by collectors and enthusiasts.

This specific car, like many Austin Healeys, was built for export to North America, where the Healey 3000 was very popular. It spent most of its life in California, with relatively little rain, and is therefore in great condition with minimal rust on the chassis. The car was restored in the UK, before it was bought by the last owner in 2011 and has been well-maintained since.

The 3000 had a successful racing career, participating in various international competitions. It achieved several notable victories in events like the 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Sebring 12 Hours. It has made appearances in various films and television shows, contributing to its enduring popularity and cultural significance.

Overall, the 1966 Austin Healey 3000 is celebrated for its classic British sports car design, spirited performance, and its status as an icon of the golden era of sports car motoring. This model is a great example of the “Big Healey”. It is cosmetically and mechanically in very good condition and has been a reliable runner for the past 12 years that it has been with the last owner.
The car comes with the original parts, where repairs or minor modifications were done to conform the car to German TUV standards.
