3000 sports MK III restored (Big Healey)
This Austin Healy MK III 3000 Phase II, also known as the Big Healey, is probably one of the finest cars around. The car is technically and mechanically in near new condition. The engine was only redone in November 2019 and has covered a mere 800 kilometres since the work.
The 3000 sports convertible Mark III was announced in February 1964 with power increased from 136 bhp to 150 bhp by a new higher lift camshaft. SU HD8 carburettors replaced HS6 units increasing the choke size from 1.75 to 2 inches, or total area 6.3 sq. inches, increasing by 30.6%). Power-assisted braking became standard instead of optional. The new car's fascia displayed its speedometer and tachometer directly in front of the driver.
The Austin Healey 3000's have a long competition history, and raced at most major racing circuits around the world, including Sebring (USA), Le Mans (France), and Mount Panorama Circuit, Bathurst (Australia). The BMC competitions department rallied the 3000 from its introduction, but the development of the works cars effectively ended in 1965.
The former owners have pampered this car during its life, it has been serviced and overhauled by the most reputable specialists in the Netherlands and we have a very large file with the maintenance work.
