1967 Austin Healey 3000 MKIII BJ8
Clayton, NC, 27527
Engine: 2.9L C-Series I6
Drive Type: RWD
The Austin-Healey 3000 MKIII BJ8 sports convertible was introduced in 1964 with an output of 150 HP using a new high-lift camshaft and dual SU HD8 carburetors. This 1967 example was acquired by the seller in 2015 and subsequently received a new top and tires. In addition, the engine was removed in 2020 and was fitted with a new clutch and all new seals. This Austin-Healy 3000 MKIII BJ8 is now being offered at auction by its seller out of North Carolina.
The exterior was refinished in a two-tone red and black color combination under previous ownership and includes a replacement black convertible soft top. Other equipment includes bumpers with overriders, front driving lights, a hood scoop, a chrome windscreen surround, a polished fuel filler door, a driver’s side Talbot-style mirror, and dual exhaust tips. Detailed images are provided in the gallery. The 15” silver wire wheels wear dual-eared knock-off spinners and were mounted with new Michelin tires in 2015 with only several hundred miles driven since.
The interior is upholstered in black vinyl with a matching dashboard, center console, door panels, and carpeting. Amenities include a dash-mounted rearview mirror, a wood-rimmed steering wheel and wood shift knob, a heater, a burlwood dashboard panel, a locking glove box, and Smiths instrumentation. An aftermarket stereo head unit was added during the current ownership.
This sale will include a clean title, owner’s manuals, a spare tire, and a car cover.
