1964 Austin-Healey 3000 Mk III BJ8 2+2

Phase II of Mk III production Newer soft top 4-Speed manual transmission w/ overdrive Twin SU carburetors Chrome knock-off wire wheels Only a 2 owner car AHCA Member Owned for 35+ years Numbers Matching Engine Straight. Solid. and Corrosion-Free Chassis and Undercarriage Strong Original Mechanicals

Offered for sale is this mildly-restored. well-maintained. visually striking. mechanically fantastic. entirely solid and numbers matching 1964 Austin Healey 3000 MK III BJ8. 2+2. finished in beautiful metallic blue over a blue leather interior. Always garaged and maintained to the highest standards. its enthusiast owner ensured that its mechanicals were in top form.  It is in excellent condition for road use and has had only two owners.

Super-rare right hand drive. can't get more original than this.

The original engine starts easily. idles consistently and pulls with force through each of the transmission's gears. Compression is strong and even. the overdrive is fully operable. the car drives and brakes straight and true and shows no indication of overheating.

a 2. 12cc inline six cylinder engine with twin SU 2” downdraft HD8 carburetors which produce 150hp. The steel ladder frame was stiffened by added an “X brace” and braking was improved with servo-assisted disc brakes. A four-speed syncro-mesh manual transmission with overdrive provides crisp and direct gear changes. While coil springs and hydraulic mono-tube shocks make up the front suspension and leaf-springs mounted to a live axle make of the rear suspension.

The finish is in excellent condition. the chrome. glass. and rubber are all in good shape and the chassis and undercarriage are in excellent condition. entirely straight. solid. and free of corrosion. The interior is in excellent condition and mirrors the condition of the exterior. Blue leather bucket with the small rear 2+2 seating provides the opportunity for this Austin-Healey to carry two more passengers; however since space is at a premium the rear seat has the ability to fold flat for more cargo room. A full-width walnut-veneer dashboard warms up the interior and provided excellent contrasts to the clear and direct Smith's black and white gauges. The factory optional heater controls are in their rightful position. In the boot a full-size spare is located. along with a knock-off hammer. roadside jack. and the original factory tool kit!

A newer dark blue soft top looks great and fits snugly and securely. providing excellent visibility through the clear plastic rear window. Chrome wire knock-off wheels contribute to the classic appearance. Roll-up windows enhance foul weather driving.

These Big Healeys are incredibly fun and iconic British sports cars that. when equipped with overdrive and fully sorted as this car is. are wonderful high-speed touring machines.

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a wonderful appreciating classic with all the right things going for it. These agile little roadsters hark back to an era of rally and road racing dominated by British roadsters. It's easy to understand why. once driving. there are few cars that give the driver such direct feedback and enjoyable experience.

With “Big Healey” auction results routinely fetching sales prices still nearing six figures. they represent a unique segment of the classic car market: highly collectible with good appreciation potential. but with strong weekend driver examples still priced somewhat accessibly so that you can actually enjoy driving them. And that's a good thing. because they are far too fun from behind the wheel to relegate them to garages or trailers on the way to shows. This car is no exception. undoubtedly providing its next owner with countless years of enjoyable driving experiences in an asset that will only increase in value over time.

Parts are readily available and inexpensive and the club support is terrific. All the experts consider a proper Big Healey tremendous value in today's market offering the driving experience these cars are famous for.
