Built from 1963 to 1967. the BJ8 was the final version of the big Healey sixes. Fitted with twin two-inch SU HD8 carbonators. the BJ8's six-cylinder engine produces 150 hp (compared to the 132-134 hp in the prior model . the BJ7) and 173 foot-pounds of torque.
The MK III also received a revised exhaust system designed to clear a low speed bump without damaging the car. a fix to a problem that had plagued Austin Healeys since 1953. Passenger accommodations include roll-up side windows ( introduced on the BJ7 three years earlier) and a luxuriously trimmed interior with a wood-faced dashboard and center console. Under the hood. a previously optional vacuum brake booster for the front disc and rear drum brakes was made standard on all BJ8 models.
This specific BJ8 is a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust (BMIHT) certified matching numbers car. It is finished in its stunning original color. Colorado Red. and two stage urethane was used in two separate paint applications to give the color extreme depth and luster.
The car was received a complete and comprehensive ground-up restoration by Healey Lane of Riverside. California.
