1965 Austin Healey 3000 MAKIII BJ8
This Austin Healey is in good running/driving condition. I drove and enjoyed this car many times this past summer.
The exterior has a paint job about 20 years ago but is still in good condition with just a few veining and bubbles. you don't see this unless if you inspect very close. The red paint is still nice and shiny. the chrome on trim and bumpers are very good all around. The gaskets are all good. The doors open and close properly. windows roll up and down well. windshield is in very good condition. The car comes with a nice rack on the rear trunk. The soft top canvas needs to be fixed or changed. but the frame is still in good condition.
The interior is in very good shape. clean with no cuts in the seat upholstery or door panels. All door handles present and work properly. The dashboard is complete with all gauges. but the wood as usual in all BJ8 has fine veining. The RPM gauge is not working. The original steering wheel has a few cracks as usual in this model. The carpet is also in good shape. The arm rests in good condition.
All the electrical system work. The engine runs well. gear box and clutch perform as it should in all gears. The carburetors were rebuilt. The engine number is 29K/H3588 ( original tag on the engine) and the chassis number is HBJ8L/28870 ( on the original aluminum tag on the firewall). I believe it's a matching number. but please do your own research to confirm. The engine compartment is nice and clean in original condition.
The trunk department comes with a spare tire and is in good shape but has a spot of rust close to the back end near the bumper. visible only from the interior if you look closely. The car comes with a tuneau.
The is solid with good floor and frame. I could not take good pictures of the underneath carriage because I don't have lifting system and as you know the car is very low profile.
Just remember that this is a 50 year old car in original condition so please keep that in mind in your expectations. This is not a concourse car but it is presentable and drivable and enjoyable as is.
If your preference is classic cars in original condition. this is the car for you. As you know classic cars are hard to find in original and complete condition.
The car is located in Toronto Ontario Canada and is sold in the condition as is and where is and there is no warranty. The car has Canadian title (ownership) in my name.
I suggest for you to send someone to come and see the car or even yourself if able. I can pick you up at the airport and the car is located only 15 minutes from the Toronto international airport. I have experience with shipping to UK and Europe so I can help the buyer with the whole process if you need it or you can arrange it yourself. The cost is 1400 pounds to UK ( Southampton)and also around 1250 pounds to Europe ( Belgium or Netherlands ). But please do your own research as well. I can load the car directly from my garage into an enclosed 20 feet container ( no consolidation shipping. not with other cars). There is a ship leaving for UK every week. As soon as payment is received. I can ship right away. It takes about 12-15 days for the ship to reach port in UK. I will load and secure the car into the container and I can also get all the proper documents needed for export included in the shipping cost. If you decide to arrange your own shipping and need more time to pick up the car and you need me to keep it in storage for some time. please discuss with me first before committing to buy. If you have less than 10 feedbacks. please contact me before bidding. I have many more pictures of the car. please contact me if you have any questions or need more pictures of any particular areas to clear any concerns you may have about the condition. If you would like to talk to me personally about the car. please send your phone number and I would be happy to call you to discuss everything.
Attention: I can take more detailed pictures if you are seriously interested. As I said again. please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about the car. to clear any doubts or concerns before committing to buy. I would be happy to clarify any points about the car to make sure that the car is what you are looking for. To be fair to everyone. I would like to keep the reserve private.
