SOLD | 1965 Austin Healey 3000 MKIII BJ8 Project | Original RHD Healey Blue Metallic



At the time of writing this is the only original RHD Austin Healey 3000 MKIII Phase II restoration project advertised for sale on the world market. Never restored, never repainted and never disassembled. Purchased by current/second owner in 1968, off the road since 1972.

Built 6-17th May 1965, original colours of Healey Blue Metallic with Navy interior. Aluminium Silver wire wheels.

The car is currently very complete and represents an ideal opportunity to restore a very original and correct car. As a BJ8 Phase Two model this represents the most desirable 3000, with a 3-litre straight six developing 150HP at 5,200rpm, a top speed of 125mph and achieving 0-60 in 9.8 seconds. These variants also gave great refinement over earlier cars with wind-up windows, easy-up ‘pram-style’ hood and superior ride and handling quality owing to revised spring and damping rates.

The vehicle is for sale as a project to be restored by Rawles Motorsport Ltd – the UK’s premium Austin Healey restorer. Cars can be restored to your exacting specification, original or to include our many uniquely developed upgrades should you wish.

Please call 01420 23212 or email to arrange a viewing and discuss your specification or to receive our ‘Austin Healey Restoration and Design Manual’ detailing all available paint and trim specifications and upgrades. Photo is of a same specification car completed by us.
