This Austin Healey comes with some service records. There is

chassis points were lubed. The tires were balanced and the

The Healey Blue
exterior is in marvelous condition. As one can see in the
photos the finish has dazzling gloss, deep shine, smooth
finished, and beautiful paint quality. The chrome bumpers and other bight work on the car
look magnificent with a brilliant finish and no rust or pitting.
Both doors open and shut nicely. The chrome wire knock off wheels are in
excellent condition with a great finish and no curb rash. The tires are sized
165R15 with 95% tread left. The frame and
everything else on the car is completely solid. I encourage any

Healey what so ever and the underside looks great.
This Austin Healey looks just as good in person as it
does in the photos.
The Blue interior of the

excessive wear. The seat shows just minimal wear in the typical area on the
the driver gets in and out. The carpet is in great condition with no

grain inside looks nice with no delamination. The convertible top (hood) and tonneau

foggy, or yellowed.

3000 MK III seems to be in good mechanical condition. The car
starts every time, runs well, and idles smooth. The car
is an awesome driver that feels great on the road and at highway
speeds. In the video below one can see the car accelerating on
the highway up to about 70mph, shifting through all the gears,
braking to stoplight, accelerating away, and going through some
curves. Please note that it shifts properly, there are no
strange vibrations, and the car performs quite well overall. The brakes are
responsive and do not pull to one side or the other. The
transmission shifts well and the shifter is tight. The
clutch feels good. This Austin Healey has plenty of power for
it's size and is quite nimble. Also, the engine
compartment is beautifully clean, detailed, and correct as one can see in
The horn works as
do all the exterior lights, indicators, and
wipers. All of the gauges work. The fan for the heater
(panel) lights work as one
can see in the video. The headlights and brights work.
As with many other older carbureted cars, this Austin
Healey is quite cold blooded, it starts every time, but it can
take a while if the car has been sitting for a while and
Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is
to drive this car, especially with the top down on a
beautiful day and the 4-speed transmission.
