SOLD | Austin Healey 3000 MkIII | Home Market Car with Great History



First registered on 8th October 1964 this 3000 MkIII is an early BJ8 Phase II example provided to the home market by Cart Mart Sales Limited of London with the registration BLE 39B – which the car still retains today. Original right hand drive cars such as this represent just 6% of production. 

The Phase II BJ8 was launched in May of 1964 and introduced a new raised chassis featuring rear pan-hard bars to the rear axle. These features both improved ride and handling whilst improving ground clearance. More interestingly still this car is an early, rare single indicator car over the later two (at the front) which was introduced towards the end of the year. 

This car has never been restored, merely just sensitively maintained. All body panels are original and as such display a wonderful level of body fit and the interior has mellowed nicely with age to give character. The paint is solid but not exceptional with some age related flaws. 

The car has an excellent paperwork trail tracing history right back to new and suggesting the displayed 72,000 miles to be very authentic. 

Recently fitted with new brakes, a stainless exhaust and fully serviced this Healey is ready for regular enjoyment, driving very nicely with very tight steering, a smooth gearbox and sweet engine. 

This car is supplied with MOT, British Motor Heritage Certificate of authenticity, copies of the original log book and MOTs and paperwork dating back to new.
