 This is a long term restoration. new to the road.  It has become an automotive sculpture. as a fresh and new Austin-Healey 3000 MK III PHII BJ8; nearly like it is right from the showroom.  
The last of the 3000 series. the MKIII PHII BJ8 model represents one of the most sought-after and collectible of all the classic British Sports-Cars. Its legacy in the rallies of the 1960's created a legend that lives on in the high price that the final of the "Big Healey's" command. The BJ8's are the most luxurious. weather tight. and powerful of all the Austin-Healey's. They have steadily increased in value since the 1960's and continue to do so today. This would be a great investment vehicle for someone with a passion for classic sports cars. but  someone who wants a well sorted out car. without having to do all the work to get it there.  
There are several levels of Healey's currently listed on E-Bay;  This example stands on its own in many ways. The NEW components were sourced. fine tuned. and installed this calendar year!. so the rubber components are fresh!  The NEW convertible top comes with a manufacturers warranty! Many more restoration photos available! Check out the engine compartment lights for the evening! Etc. Etc.
