Description

The enlargement of its C-Series six-cylinder engine to 2,912cc, and the adoption of Girling front disc brakes, differentiated the new-for-1959 Austin-Healey 3000 from the preceding 100/6. In 3000 form the rugged Austin six delivered 124bhp at 4,600rpm, good enough for a top speed (in overdrive) of 114mph. Otherwise, the car remained much as the 100/6, though the more-powerful disc brakes were a welcome improvement.

The original 3000 was built from March 1959 to March 1961 as models BN7 Mark I (2-seater) and BT7 Mark I (2+2 version), becoming known as the Mark I after the Mark II was released. Robust and tuneable, in its time the Big Healey was immensely popular with privateer racers and ralliers. Today, forty years after production ceased, Healey 3000s continue to be extensively campaigned in historic motorsport, both in tarmac events and on the rough stuff.

This absolutely stunning Big Healey has just completed an exhaustive restoration and is described by the vendor to be in exceptional condition. The car has been treated to a body off overhaul with all mechanics, trim and accessories looked after. Finished with a brand new Mohair hood, this 3000 is certainly worth the very closest of inspections.
