1966 Austin Healey 3000 Mark III Phase IIThis is a long term restoration, new to the road. It has become an automotive sculpture, as a fresh and new Austin-Healey 3000 MK III PHII BJ8; nearly like it is right from the showroom...
The last of the 3000 series, the MKIII PHII BJ8 model represents one of the most sought-after and collectible of all the classic British Sports-Cars. Its legacy in the rallies of the 1960's created a legend that lives on in the high price that the final of the "Big Healey's" command. The BJ8's are the most luxurious, weather tight, and powerful of all the Austin-Healey's. They have steadily increased in value since the 1960's and continue to do so today. This would be a great investment vehicle for someone with a passion for classic sports cars, but someone who wants a well sorted out car, without having to do all the work to get it there...
