In February, 1964, Austin-Healey announced the Mark III/BJ8 sports convertible model. The model included the reliable 2912cc inline 6 cylinder motor that Austin-Healey was famous for, but the Bj8 version had 14 more horsepower, with a new higher lift longer duration cam shaft, bringing the bulletproof engines up to 150bhp.
This 3000 was Restored around 12 years ago.
The engine runs strong and doesn’t use any oil or smoke, all lights, turn signals, horn and wipers work as they should. Electric Over Drive works perfect as it should. “Up or Down” the car is equipped with Cranking windows, full size wire wheel’s, stair with knock off jack/tool kit and Two, side rear view mirrors.
The car has all new steering components & linkage and 4 brand new tires, and a new gas tank. An All New wiring harness through-out the car that was installed in 2018, all electrics work ! The car comes with many receipts.
The car also has a New Vinyl Top with a New vinyl cover for the top when it’s down.
Compression’s were done feb-2020 as well, and are all perfect. (Receipts available)
The car has lived its entire life in NM with Zero Rust.
We drive this car quite often, I love the cars handling.
We take the car on Breakfast and weekend drives To Santa Fe, Jemez springs & Madrid, in NM
The car is very Reliable always starts and has never let us down.
With new car prices, the boredom of being stuck driving a car that looks like everything else on the road, this Healey is a welcome breath of fresh air.
