1966 AUSTIN HEALEY 3000 MK III ROADSTER #HBJ8l34372. (Stock #3859). The MK III was the end of production of the “Big Healey,” the worthy successor to the “Healey 100” of the 1950’s . With “luxurious” appointments as roll-up windows, pull-up top, polished wood facia and the more powerful 150 horsepower, twin carburetor, 6-cylinder engine, the 3000 MK III did retain the 4-speed manual transmission with electric overdrive and the style, charm and sound that was all Austin Healey. Our car was built from December 17 through 20, 1965 and delivered new to Dusseldorf, Germany on January 5, 1966. German delivery cars were built to the same specification as U.S. delivery cars and, sometime over the next 20 years, the car made its way to the U.S. It was then treated to a just-restored chassis from another “3000” (the chassis remains in fabulous condition today) and new paint in its original color and purchased as an anniversary gift to themselves by a New Jersey couple in the 1980’s. It has been owned by them ever since. Finished in Colorado Red with original black interior—as per the car’s accompanying British Heritage Trust Certificate, the car is in very nice condition throughout and drives beautifully. $48,000.
