1967 Austin Healey 3000 Additional Info:

1967 BJ8 purchased from a local owner for a personal project. We have too many shop projects going for personal projects, and I need the storage space for customer cars.
We have rebuilt the engine and it has about 250 miles on it so far. Runs great. The gearbox functioned well, so I left it alone. In retrospect, I should have pulled it and re-sealed it, but I thought I would do that at a later time.
Has good working 4 speed gearbox with working overdrive.
At the time of the engine rebuild, we also installed a new clutch assembly on a freshly turned flywheel.
Starter and generator were also rebuilt.
New High efficiency radiator core
SU Carbs rebuilt
Steering box re-sealed
Brake system rebuilt
New windshield
New convertible top
New door seals and convertible top seals
New dash top
Dash wood restored
Heater box rebuilt and all hoses replaced
New tires
Fuel system flushed and tank cleaned
All lights and systems function as they should. This is the last year for the Healey. Roll up windows, not side curtains. Has a full tonneau cover as well.
Even though the paint is faded, it still gets looks wherever I go. The interior, while older, is still in presentable condition. No major holes or damage. All the gauges work as they should.
Looking around the car, all the panels are in good condition with no evidence of major accident damage. I am sure that it has had its share of nicks and bruises, but I do not see any evidence of major crash damage. The trunk rails and interior metal do look to be correct and undamaged. Engine compartment frame rails are straight as well.
Looks like the left dog leg is starting to blister. The right dogleg may have been "curbed" as it is slightly folded under (New left and right dog legs are included).
The valence portion of the front apron looks to have been fixed at some point as I can see hammer marks on the back side of the valence. The rear valence looks to be in excellent condition.
When the fuel tank was out, the trunk floor cleaned coated with POR-15 as it had surface rust.
There are numerous other small things done to the car as well that I can not remember off the top of my head.
Whether you are looking for a car to drive and restore slowly, or the best possible car to start a full restoration with, this is a great candidate. Buying the best possible car you can for a restoration will save time and money down the road.
I will do my best to quickly respond to questions. I can help with delivery worldwide. The car has a clear California title.
