1965 Austin-Healey 3000 MKIII BJ8 Phase II Roadster

VIN: HBJ8L29309

This Austin-Healey is a very solid car overall and in very good driver condition. It is currently for sale by its third owner. While the car is in largely original condition the paint at one point was changed from its original “Colorado Red” to a classic British Racing Green. All body seals and exterior flashing were replaced when the Healey was repainted. It has been exceptionally maintained.

The grill is original and in beautiful condition. The engine was fully rebuilt by a Healey specialty shop in Minneapolis just before its purchase by the second owner over 16 years ago. The car has always been garaged. It has both a new tonneau cover and bonnet cover. The top is also original, and in good condition. The car has new chrome wire wheels and new tires.

While the car does have some floor rust, it is very minimal. Things like the frame, the x-bracing bars, structural issues etc. are all in excellent shape.For those that would want to keep the car in its current condition as a solid driver, these are non-issues that would not need to be addressed at all. The frame / lines / body are also all extremely straight and clean.

The car features an added Alpine AM/FM/CD and Boston Acoustic speaker system. This is a beautiful car. It runs great and it is strong. This is an Austin-Healey than truly any enthusiast would be proud to own and be seen cruising around in with the top down. It is being reluctantly sold as a newer Alfa Romeo is trying to take its place in the garage.
