1965 Austin Healey 3000 MKIII Roadster

A beautiful Big Healey in iconic colors and highly desirable late specification. Beautifully presented and ready for the road.​

Our featured example is an early Phase II BJ8, built in October 1964. This lovely Austin Healey received a complete rotisserie restoration in 2007, and it remains in beautiful condition today. It is presented in period-correct Healey Blue Metallic over a dark blue interior, and it has been well maintained and enjoyed in the hands of the most recent owner. According to the Heritage Certificate, this is an original left-drive, North American Export model equipped from new with laminated windscreen, heater, wire wheels, adjustable steering column, and overdrive. The presentation is beautiful, with high-quality paintwork and body panels showing consistent, factory-appropriate fit. Bumpers, trim pieces and wire wheels all present in excellent condition with minimal polish marks and bright, clean reflections in the plating.

The interior is equally well-done, with the seats, door cards and console trimmed in dark blue, period-correct Ambla vinyl. The soft trim is in excellent condition, appearing very nicely maintained and with minimal aging since the restoration was completed. Carpets are similarly well-kept, correctly presented down to the molded rubber “Austin” heel pad. Smiths instruments and Lucas switchgear are excellent, set in a refinished burl wood fascia. The original banjo-type steering wheel is retained, and the shift lever topped with a walnut AMCO shift knob. With the blue vinyl top up or down, the interior is comfortable and inviting.
