1967 AUSTIN HEALEY 3000 MK III BJ8 --British Racing Green with Black interior, Black carpeting with Black soft top, showing 47,000 miles, Exceptional restoration by marque specialists Fourintune, Only 4,000 collector owner miles since restoration, 3.0 liter 6-cylinder engine, 4-speed manual transmission with overdrive, Numbers matching, BMHT Heritage Certificate. VIN: BJ8L41750 1967 marked the last year and final version of the “big” Healey, the 3000 Mark III, series BJ8. The 3-litre, 6-cylinder, twin SU carburetors engine produced 150bhp, which was the most of any model in the Austin Healey lineup. The Phase II Healey 3000 improvements included a revised exhaust system, a revised rear suspension to increase ride height for improved ground clearance, and a vacuum brake booster as standard. The 3000 Mark III series BJ8 was the only model in the range of Austin Healey’s that featured a lavish cockpit including a dashboard of burled walnut veneer, a center console with the curved windscreen, wing windows and roll-up side windows which were introduced just before on the series BJ7 model. It is clearly the most comfortable and most luxurious of all Austin Healey’s. This 1967 Austin Healey 3000 MK III BJ8 was produced in May 1967 and has since lead a very charmed life. The restoration took place in 1999 by marque specialists, Fourintune Garage. Tom Kovacs noted during the restoration that no floor pan or door jamp repairs were required, but a complete mechanical refreshing was in order. A “Texas Cooler” shrouded fan was installed for drivability. Since restoration, this Healey has been collector owned and cared for and enjoyed in limited use. This Healey 3000 is a complete matching numbers car with all original panels and includes all books, full documented restoration documents, BMHT Heritage Certificate, and workshop manuals. The quality and condition of both the interior and exterior will be certainly appreciated as this “big Healey” is complete and ready for show or touring pleasure.
