US 1962 Austin-Healey 3000 MK II Documented Gold Award Winning 3000 MK II 29A 2. 9/134 HP Tri-Power Six 4 Speed Year: 1962 Type of vehicle title: Clear Primary color: Green Mileage: 75064 Transmission type: 4 Speed Manual Engine: 2. 9 Liter 6 Cylinder Interior color: Tan Vehicle Info SUMMARYGround-up restoration conducted by the president of the California Austin-Healey Club2. 9 liter British Motor Corporation 29A 6-cylinder / Correct tri-power carburetion4-speed manual transmission / Correct optional electronic overdriveCertified Gold in the Austin-Healy Concours RegistryFeatured in the September. 2001 edition of Austin-Healey MagazineOur sale includes factory records from the British Motor Industry Heritage TrustOriginally sold in San Francisco / Spent most of its life in CaliforniaBelieved to be the only Pacific Green on Florida Green 3000 Mk II in overall excellent conditionCorrect optional Smiths heaterCorrect optional wire wheelsThe early '60s could quite possibly be considered the dawn of performance roadsters. Of course. hardcore racers had always whipped fire-breathing drop-tops around various tracks. But the majority of America's '50s convertibles were big. luxurious. cushy and way too civilized to take serious turns. That's why spry cars like this Concours Gold-winning Austin-Healy 3000 Mk II gradually redefined how the domestic market interpreted open-air motoring. Small. tossable. relatively cheap and extremely fun right out of the box. this fully documented cover car is a virtually spotless classic that was painstakingly restored by the president of the California Austin-Healey Club. Presently. the car is believed to be the only Pacific Green on Florida Green 3000 Mk II that's in overall excellent condition. And. if you're looking for a fully sorted. fully pedigreed Austin that's also a blast to drive. it's the 'big Healey' of your dreams!BODYWORK/TRIMAccording to past owners. this Mk II was converted from black and red to its current Pacific Green over Florida Green aesthetics during a detailed restoration that was conducted by the president of the California Austin-Healey Club. At the front of the car's west coast body. a mirrored bumper hangs new overriders beneath chrome-trimmed headlights. bullet-style parking lamps and a stylish grille that's topped by an ornate header emblem. Above that grille. a subtle hood scoop leads the eye to freshly seated glass that's flanked by factory side curtains and capped in clean beige vinyl. At the sides of that scoop. stainless fender toppers perfectly complement polished profile inserts and chrome door handles. At the back of those toppers. correct "Austin-Healey 3000" badging rides between chrome trunk trim. simple tail lamps. a locking gas cap and a second bumper that features two more fresh overriders. And it all adds up to one lust worthy 3000 that puts most European metal to shame!ENGINEMechanically. this Austin exemplifies top-notch detailing via a rare tri-carb engine that was completely rebuilt at the time of the car's ground-up restoration. Tilt the lightweight hood and you'll find 2. 9 liters in a 29A 6-cylinder that looks good and runs great! Based on British Motor Corporation's stalwart C-Series. Austin's inline mill isn't a grossly overpowered piece. But it's certainly proven its ability to jet this compact roadster out of many tight curves. and cruise comfortably in just about any situation its owners' demanded. At the top of the light green block. vintage Coopers air cleaners sling wind in to three correct SU carburetors. At the base of those carbs. a stamped. factory-correct valve cover caps factory intake and exhaust manifolds. At the base of that valve cover. an old school Lucas distributor sequences spark through fresh plug wires. And the car's tight engine bay is dotted with many show-ready essentials. including a correct Coventry radiator. a color-keyed generator and a requisite red finger guard. DRIVETRAIN/SUSPENSIONDesigned to be basic and simple. this micro roadster utilizes a slew of factory-correct parts to create an exceptionally fun driving experience. Behind the engine. a rugged 4-speed serves up an awesome mix of curve-carving prowess and calm highway manners thanks to optional electronic overdrive. Stops come courtesy of manual front disc and rear drum brakes. The car's chassis. which rides on a familiar set of coil and leaf springs. has been restored in a striking mix of Florida Green and Satin Black pigment. A factory manifold. replacement pipes. a traditional muffler and small. stainless tips handle exhaust. At the corners of the floor. correct wire wheels spin 205/65R15 General Ameri G4S around fresh knock-offs. And. as far as appearance goes. the bottom of this 'big Healey' is exactly what you'd expect from a lightly used restoration; proving that. while this Mk II IS exceptionally nice. it's certainly not something you should be afraid to get dirty. INTERIORLike its exterior. the interior of this 3000 was altered from its original red and black aesthetic during the car's ground-up restoration. Front and center. small bucket seats sport piped cream vinyl. Below those seats. plush green carpet provides a supple foundation for simple black mats. Above those mats. a classy dash centers a retro mirror on restored Smiths telemetry. a small grab handle and a correct. optional Smiths heater. In the middle of the floor. a petite shifter works a color-keyed boot. In front of the driver. a polished and wood-rimmed steering wheel spins a period-correct trafficator. At the sides of the passengers. scuff-free door panels frame large map pockets. And behind that cockpit. a small trunk has been fully finished with a roster of correct materials.
