Austin Healey Mk3000
The Austin Healey MK 3000 is a car that we ourselves value very highly. The basics of car enthusiasm; in front a big 2.9 liter 6-in-line engine with about 150 British horses, rear wheel drive, nice and stiff and a large steering wheel. Its spartan character makes it a real driver’s car. There were not many options; even the outside mirrors, cigarette lighter and wire wheels were optional. Ours later added a (must-have Healey) option; The sidepipes.
Between 1959 and 1967 Austin made 36,816 Healeys; the Mark I, Mark II and the one we welcomed to our clubhouse, the Mark III. The Mark I’s body was made by Jensen Motors and the assembly by BMC. Of the Mark III, 17,712 eventually rolled off the assembly line. Unfortunately, thanks to the birth of another British icon, the Mini, production ceased in 1968. Austin needed all the capacity for the immensely popular Austin Mini!
Our Healey is a specimen that can be described as “in mint condition”. The MK3000 has been owned for 18 years by the last owner, who besides the hobby of driving, clearly also had a hobby of cleaning! Under the hood she shines just as beautiful as on the outside. With that knowledge you drive even better, believe us. In terms of color combination actually everything a classic Brit should be; British racing green, a dark interior and walnut. The documentation is very complete and everything has been maintained in detail. The engine and gearbox are matching, so that also covers the rational thoughts.
Who is ready for short gears, real driving and guaranteed thumbs up; This is him!I'm interested in this object
