1965 Austin Healey 3000

This has to be one of the best Austin Healeys ever offered for sale. This is an immaculately restored Austin Healey 3000. We started with a well cared for donor car, who according to our information was owned by the same service station owner for over 30 years!!!

Our goal was a SHOWCAR-DRIVER. We desired perfection and restored it like we were going to keep it forever! No shortcuts, no stone unturned!

Car was already bare-metaled and painted by a previous owner. Paint is immaculate!

Below is a non-inclusive list of what was done to the car: All receipt documented

British Motor Heritage Trust Certificate

Complete original engine rebuild: we have put 1500 miles on the car to properly sort and break-in,

New $600 exhaust system

Healey 5 speed transmission installed, original transmission goes with the car. This is a wonderful update for this classic, synchronized now in FIRST GEAR, a $3000 upgrade

New leather interior

New back seat shelf

New Carpet

Tonneau cover

5 new 60 spoke chrome wire wheels

5 new tires

Suspension, brakes etc redone

solid frame and clean underneath, see pictures

New wiring harness

Starter rebuilt

All gauges and turn signals work; trafficator has been rebuilt by Healey trafficator expert in California and works perfectly

Has been converted to negative ground, modern radio installed with mp3 port, CD player and 3000 logo plate fits when radio face plate is removed like for car shows, etc

Cell phone DC charger installed

New quality CANVAS TOP; far superior to vinyl as you avoid the cracking of vinyl problem

NEW top boot, purchased from AH Spares in England, this one fits, unlike those

purchased in USA.

If you are looking for a quality Show-Car that is also a reliable driver, then THIS IS THAT CAR! In my opinion everything has been done. With proper care and plenty of exercise this car will be a joy to drive and trouble-free for many years to come.

I take pride in restoring these cars. This is the 9th big Healey I have owned!!! I am the contractor as I leave the work up to the professionals!!! Sometimes I insist things be redone if not up to par, Of course many times I pay for the redo.

We are asking $112,000 for an expertly restored and very reliable classic that is appreciating rapidly. This is a restoration that is well documented with many detailed receipts. Detailed receipts are key for good appreciation of value: proper documentation.
