1962 Austin-Healey 3000 Mark II Tri-Carb s/n HB57L16356 Black with Black Interior Austin-Healey truly cemented their reputation as a producer of serious, capable sports cars with the introduction of the 3000. The 3000 series cars were so significant, that this series comprised more than sixty percent of the total production volume worldwide at their peak of manufacturing. These capable six cylinder brutes would quickly become known affectionately as the "Big Healey". Not only was the car popular, the affordability allowed for market expansion particularly in North America, which accounted for nearly 90% of all sales. By March of 1961, the Austin Healey 3000 Mark II brought several changes to the already excellent 3000 Mark. I. Available in two forms, with wind up windows or side curtains, the new model also included a newly styled grille with vertical bars among other improvements. The Mark II offers the desirable styling of the early "Big Healeys" combined with the performance and practicality of the more refined cars. This particular car is a rare tri-carb, center shift example, which is regarded as the more desirable series among Healey owners. The ownership history and records
- Original RHD UK supplied example with 62,500 recorded miles - Re-painted in 2013, over-drive equipped and known ownership from new - Overhauled carburettors last year, MOT'd to July 2018 and ready to be enjoyed Donald Healey's eponymous company built a prototype two-seater sports car for display at the 1952 London Motor Show that not only impressed the public, but also so excited Austin's Managing Director, Leonard Lord, that he struck a deal to build the car in volume at Longbridge. The newcomer was renamed the Austin-Healey 100 and the rest, as they say, is history. The 'Big' Healey enjoyed steady development with the four cylinder cars giving way to the 100-Six of 1956, which was replaced by the first of the 3000s in 1959. The final version was the 3000 MKIII which was launched in October 1963 and mildly upgraded (Phase 2) in May the following year. The most powerful and luxurious of all the models, it had a lively performance courtesy of its 150bhp straight-six engine and featured such niceties as wind-up windows and a walnut veneer facia. 3000 production closed at the end of 1967 after 42,926 had been made, 17,712 of which were MKIIIs. As one of the last of the line, the 300

We are delighted to offer this magnificent matching numbers UK supplied Austin Healey onto the market. YNF 526A was built between the 1st and 4rd of November 1963 and supplied new by Windsor Motor Company, Windsor, Berkshire. This RHD Home Market car was equipped new with overdrive, wire wheels, heater, adjustable steering column, servo assisted brakes and laminated windscreen. Whilst this is a genuine UK home market car, it has spent much of its life overseas in RHD format. The Austin Healey was taken to San Marino where it spent several years prior to being registered in Italy on the 7 th July 1982. The Healey then spent 32 years in Italy, spending from 1982 to 2012 in Brescia with one owner. In 2014 the car was in Roma, and was brought back to the UK and it has had just one UK owner since. YNF 526A came back to the UK and was sold to the last owner in stunning, excellent condition. The Ice Blue over Cream paintwork was and still is in pristine condition with an outstanding finish. The car was found to be in mechanically excellent order with a beautifully strong engine holding very good oil pressure. The Healey was put through an MOT, fully serviced and since then has covered jus
Healey models. The car's bodywork was made by Jensen Motors, and the vehicles were assembled at the BMC Abingdon works. The 3000 was a successful car which won its class in many European rallies in its heyday - and is still used in competition by enthusiasts today. The 3000 Mk III was launched in October 1963, and remained in production until the end of 1967 when production of Austin-Healeys finally ceased. (One further car was built in March 1968.) Classified as the BJ8, the new model was the most powerful and luxurious of the big Healeys, with a walnut-veneer dash, wind up windows, and 150 hp (112 kW) engine. Improvements to the engine included a new camshaft and valve springs, and twin SU 2" HD8 carburettors, together with a new design of exhaust system. Servo-assisted brakes were now fitted as standard. Only 2+2 seat versions were made. Option extras were similar to those offered for the MkII, the main change being that the standard interior trim was now Ambla vinyl, with leather seats being added to the list of options. In May 1964 the Phase II version of the MkIII was released, which had a modified rear chassis to allow rear ground clearance to be increased, and subsequently,

This wonderful example of the ultimate “Big Healey” received a thorough, photo documented rotisserie restoration by marque specialist Fred Brander.

Since restoration, this Healey has not been shown on the concours lawn instead it has been collector owned and cared for since restoration. In 2012 and due to its exceptional condition throughout, it was used as the cover car and subject Healey for the September 2012 edition of Classic Motorsports magazine. This Healey
GSK 817 was built on the 7th-8th April 1959 and left the factory in Colarado Red with Red upholstery. The Healey was sold new in New York, USA with wire wheels, overdrive, adjustable steering column, heater, laminated windscreen and miles per hour speedometer. The car is today still with its original engine and gearbox, and during the early 1990's was fitted with a racing overdrive unit. In 1991 the Healey was brought over to the UK, subject of a right hand drive steering conversion and restoration work and was registered too and owned by one of our existing customers for almost 20 years.

1960 Austin-Healey 3000 Mkl BN7 VIN: H-BN7-L10160 Completed on June 1st 1960, this BN7 was shipped off to the North American market eight- days later. It was optioned with wire wheels, heater, adjustable steering column, overdrive, and a laminated windscreen. In 2010, then owner Ray Kennett completed a full nut and bolt restoration of the car. His shop, BTO Auto works, is a veteran of over 20 concours level Big Healey restorations. The engine, transmission, and suspension were rebuilt by well-known Healey expert, Peter Genovese of Highland Automotive of Highland, NY. In September 2010, the car won the Austin-Healey concours class at British Invasion XX in Stowe, Vermont. In 2011, under the new ownership of Ray D'Ardenne the car won Gold Level Certification at the Healey Conclave in Colorado Springs. This car may have a Gold Level Certification, but it is not a trailer queen. Being a 1960 it is eligible for many of the great vintage tours, and this BN7 successfully completed the Colorado Grand in 2013 as well as the Copperstate 1000 in 2014. The car's most recent owner has focused on both the drivability and concours competiveness. In the past three years he has rebuilt the overdriv

Now wanting for nothing but an enthusiastic new owner, we invite your early interest to secure this impressive Healey.
This stunning Ice Blue over Cream Austin Healey 3000 MKII was built on the 19th April 1963 and despatched on the 26th April to a New York dealership. PTU 426B was supplied new as a LHD North American Export car with white wall tyres, heater, miles per hour speedo, laminated windscreen, overdrive, adjustable steering column and tonneau cover. We don't know any early history but paperwork confirms the Healey was sold to a Jeweller in Fulton, Missouri in April 1997 who kept the car for nineteen years. By 2015, the long term US owner decided to sell the car in need of restoration and it was exported out of the Port of Houston and arrived in the UK. During 2015 major restoration began with a full body strip down to a rolling shell. The body was professionally restored and painted body colour underneath. A full right hand drive conversion was carried out and the engine was checked, compressions and oil pressure found to be excellent and the gearbox stripped and rebuilt. The engine and gearbox were refitted along with many new ancillaries and the exterior treated to chrome including chrome wire wheels and a brand new hood and refurbished frame.
