1964-1968 AUSTIN-HEALEY 3000 Mk III specifications Classic and Performance Car

The final genesis of the ‘Big Healey’ appeared in 1964. Although the looks remained largely the same this was the most powerful Austin-Healey ever, its 148bhp output making for a top speed of 121mph. The Phase 2 versions had revised rear suspension which improved handling. However, the end was nigh for the Healey and the final car was built in March 1968. Many mourned its passing, and its replacement, the MGC, failed to impress buyers in the same way. MkIIIs fetch the best Big Healey money these days.
