This 1967 Austin Healy 3000 Mk III BJ8 has been with the same owner since 1976. Power comes from the original 2.9 liter inline six cylinder and is delivered to the rear wheels through the original manual gearbox with overdrive. A full rotisserie restoration was performed in 1989 and a second restoration was performed in 1999. The car has been well maintained throughout its life. Maintenance and repairs were performed by Sport and Specialty in Illinois. Records are pictured in the gallery. The car comes with a clean, NC title and is located in Pinehurst, North Carolina.

The current owner has been an active member of the Austin Healey Club of America throughout his ownership and participated in most of the clubs “Conclave” events, the Austin Healey Club of America’s annual national gathering.

The car was part of the on stage set of the 1989 production of “Misanthropes” performed at the Goodman Theater in Chicago, starring Kim Cattrall of “Sex and the City”. The set was built to resemble a hillside California home with the car hoisted onto a “driveway platform” above the stage.

This is a picture of the completed set. An arrow has been added to identify the Austin Healey.

The engine features dual SU Carburetors, an upgraded alternator, spin on oil filter, an upgraded aluminum radiator, a Jaguar clutch assembly, and an overdrive gear ratio of 28% (standard is 22%). The steering box has also been upgraded to a unit from Denis Welch Motorsports.

A removable luggage rack is included with the car.

An accident in the 2000’s resulted in front end damage. Repairs were completed by vintage motorsports and restoration specialists, Sport and Specialty in Durand, IL. A complete list of components used in the repair is in the gallery.

The black leather interior features a Moto Lita steering wheel and hub, Smiths gauges, and a hub mounted turn signal switch.

Ken says:

What was the reserve?

Chris hendricks says:

What’s the reserve. If reasonable may buy

Phil luciano says:

Will the Austin Healey for sale now since reserve was not met?
Please advise, Phil

Seller Charles Anderson says:

Sorry about the delay in answering.
No mechanical problems. Could be driven cross country tomorrow. It has always been very well maintained.
Mileage is difficult. The speedometer is about 12% low. (It can be sent off to be re-calibrated) The mileage shows 39,241, which is most likely 139,241 plus 12% (about 16,708 miles) would put it at 155,949. This would be from the 1990 restoration when the speedometer was zeroed out.
The engine was rebuilt in the late 90’s. The current compression testing on all cylinders is 150. They match each other perfectly which is a good sign. There has never been a thought about rebuilding it since it runs so well and has been well maintained.

JOe says:

Are any answers going to be given on this car?

Tony Parker says:

Tony Parker says:

How many miles on it?

bushhog says:

Is there a reserve price on this A/H 3000 MK !!! BJ 8 ? I can’t seem to find it.

CVA Admin says:

Hi @bushhog. Yes there is a reserve price. We do not publish reserve prices.

bushhog says:

A little note for myself in case my bid might be taken…I would transfer funds from banking to my checking account NOT on credit card. Is that acceptable ? It would be in the form of cashiers check.

CVA Admin says:

@bushhog If you win the auction you would pay the seller directly. You can pay the seller however you two agree is acceptable. CVA will automatically collect the 5% buyers premium from your credit card. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
