1964 Austin Healey 3000 Mk III BJ8
The Austin-Healey 3000 MKIII BJ8 sports convertible was the final variation of a long line of big Healey sports cars starting with the 100-4 model of 1953. The MKIII was produced from 1964 to 1967 and was arguably the fastest, most comfortable and nicest-riding model of all Healeys. This is evident in the market today as this model commands the highest price of the production cars and excellent restored examples are very much sought after. This Grand Touring big Healey was recently purchased as an excellent, straight, rust-free, Nevada car and has just completed an extensive and thorough restoration by premier marque specialist, Kurt Tanner Restorations. Finished in it's original factory color scheme of beautiful Colorado Red with black trim and top. This exceptional MKIII convertible features a 4-speed overdrive gearbox, chrome stainless wire wheels, adjustable steering and heater. Details of the restoration include new show-quality Sikkens, two-stage body and paint, completely new interior, top, top boot, new rubber kit, brakes, fuel system, re-plated hardware, detailed driveline and undercarriage, new wiring harness and electrics, new stainless wire wheels and tires. A superb example of the final model of the Austin-Healey marque. This BJ8 MK III convertible represents exceptional value and good investment potential. It has completed test miles only since is recent, fresh, top-quality restoration and is now ready for immediate use and enjoyment.
