A desirable triple-carb MkII presented in handsome colors. Restored by marque specialists and finely detailed from top to bottom.
This 1962 Austin Healey 3000 MkII is a desirable triple-carb example that was the subject of a complete, frame-up restoration completed in 2006. According to the accompanying Heritage Certificate, this car is a North American export model, first delivered in early 1962 to a dealer in San Francisco. Options included a heater, wire wheels, overdrive, an adjustable steering column, and Roadspeed tires. The car was part of an East Coast collection for many years, where it had been serviced and maintained by Healey specialists Aventura Motors of Southampton, New York.
Presented in excellent condition, this 3000 is finished in a lovely combination of black over cream body sides. The paint quality is very good, with deep gloss on straight body panels, with just one or two minor paint imperfections apparent on closer inspection. The chrome is in similarly good condition all around, with a mix of restored and original pieces. Bumpers have excellent high-quality plating, while the grille and lamp bezels show some very minor pitting but are otherwise quite attractive. The car is nicely accessorized with a pair of Lucas Flamethrower fog lights, tripod headlamps, and chrome knock-off wire wheels fitted with Vredestein Sprint Classic radials.
