1961 Austin Healey 3000

Description

The Austin-Healey 3000 is a British sports car built from 1959 to 1967. It is the best known of the “Big Healey” models. The car’s bodywork was made by Jensen Motors and the vehicles were assembled at BMC’s MG Works in Abingdon, alongside the corporation’s MG models.

During its production life, the car transitioned from an open sports car, albeit with a child-transporting 2+2 option, to a sports convertible.

In 1963, 91.5 per cent of all Austin-Healey 3000 cars were exported; mostly to North America. The 3-litre 3000 was a highly successful car, which won its class in many European rallies in its heyday and is still raced in classic car competitions by enthusiasts today.

This exceptionally well restored “Big Healey” has been refreshed, restored and renewed for a new owner and many years in the future, having been comprehensively rebuilt and repainted with all new interior, brakes, convertible hood and other sundry mechanical items in only February of this year.

The seller describes the body, chassis, interior and paintwork – indeed all cosmetic components – as excellent, and inspection confirms this. Mechanically the car is in good condition. Along with its cosmetic considerations, it is ready to provide the new owner with many enjoyable years of open-top classic British motoring.

Finished in the classic Healey colours of Ice Blue over white with a black leather interior, this really is the ubiquitous all-round classic brute.
