The Austin Healey 3000 is a British sports car built from 1959 to 1967. It is the best known as the "big Healey" models.
Jensen Motors made the car’s bodywork and the vehicles were assembled at BMC's MG Works in Abingdon, alongside the corporation's MG models.
During its production life, the car transitioned from an open sports car, with a child-transporting 2+2 option, to a sports convertible.
In 1963, 91.5 per cent of all Austin-Healey 3000 cars were exported; mostly to North America.
The 3-litre 3000 were a highly successful car, which won its class in many European rallies in its heyday and is still raced in classic car competitions by enthusiasts today.
British Motor Corporation ended manufacture in 1967.
This particular Austin Healey was originally supplied new to the American market in left hand drive format.
The car was repatriated back to the UK in 1970 where the owner had the car converted to right hand drive repainted British Racing Green and trimmed Magnolia leather with Green piping to a very good standard.
The car was stripped down by the owners friend to do some chassis repair and stripped the whole car down. After leaving the car stripped for a year we were asked to retrieve the car and now needs to sell it at is, fully stripped.
The mechanical side of the car is very good and prior to the car being stripped it drove really well and was in very find cosmetic and mechanical order.
