Offered for sale is a stunning original example of a 1967 Austin Healey 3000 MKIII BJ8. Finished in Healey blue over a navy interior, this car is one of the most original, unmolested BJ8s you’re likely to find. A two owner car (the second for 30 plus years), the odometer reading of 46k miles is correct – it’s always been used sparingly as a weekend driver, was always properly stored and therefore seems like it’s come out of a time-capsule. With the exception of a newly installed correct carpet kit, everything is original to the car, even the top.
As the pictures illustrate, the car’s in absolutely gorgeous condition. The paint is in good shape, free of any significant dings, knicks or scracthes and the chrome is original and very clean, marred only by a single mark in the front bumper. The glass and rubber are solid, the top shows no wear and the car comes with its original full tonneau cover. The seats are in excellent original condition, all of the panels and dash are flawless and the wood dash shows only minor wear.
The original, numbers matching inline six starts and idles easily, pulling strongly and smoothly through each of gears and retaining with strong compression. Whether cruising down the highway or carving through the canyons, this BJ8 is an absolute joy to drive and not a day goes by without compliments from other drivers and pedestrians. As you can see from the pictures, the engine bay is original and untouched and the car has never been in any accidents, with straight lines and gaps. The car is completely rust free and always has been, stored in a dry, climate controlled garage when not in use. The considerable efforts of the previous owner are abundantly evident, resulting in an incredible original example that’s sure to provide its next owner with the same joy and pride.
