Description:

Vehicle to be offered for Auction sale January 15th – 19th, 2014 at Russo and Steele''s 14th Annual Scottsdale Arizona Auction. Please contact us for more information.One of the last Austin-Healey 3000 Mk III BJ8 Sports Convertibles built, this true Golden Beige Metallic example received a nut-and-bolt restoration by marque specialists and is accompanied at auction by a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust (BMIHT) certificate and marks a highly desirable and incredibly rare find at auction in factory-original colors. While all Big Healeys have their many merits, there are a few examples that are particularly collectible and cherished by marque enthusiasts. This late-production 1967 Austin Healey 3000 Mk III BJ8 (Phase II) is absolutely a must have for any serious collector. Not just any however, it must be one of the last examples, a 41,000 Serial number car that was delivered with the incredibly rare and desirable colors of Golden Beige Metallic. Only 500 were ever produced and fewer exist today. These are the final Big Healeys produced and they are coveted and collected worldwide. This example is one of the rarest and most interesting examples, confirmed as one of only 50 produced in the incredibly rare and desirable color combination of Golden Beige Metallic with a Red Interior, the same colors it left the factory with. The Healey recently received a total nut and bolt restoration by a marque specialist. Having received thousands of hours and a total strip, the car has been comprehensively restored to perfection whilst remaining under the same ownership from the early 1980s to the present. The restoration entailed total disassembly and cataloguing of parts. Each system was individually restored, including the engine, transmission, and rear end. Only after the body was totally straight with good gaps was it painted in its original Golden Beige Metallic color with a two-stage system. Most of the original parts were restored to maintain authenticity. Other parts were only the best and as needed. It is finished off with a new set of chrome wires, tires, and a fresh red leather interior with superb fit and finish, and a new and correct top. The overall fit and finish is superb and the car is straight and well finished throughout. Everything is as it is supposed to be with a highly correct engine bay, interior, superb undercarriage, and more. The car is reported to start instantly and run strongly with quick throttle response and holds excellent oil pressure and temperature once warm. The clutch and braking operation is excellent and the car overall is incredibly well sorted and ready to enjoy. The restoration was completed in late 2008 and car remains today a well cared for example that is still worthy as a concours entrant but could also be enjoyed on many tours and events. The opportunity for a true 41,000 serial number Golden Beige Metallic BJ8 is rare and when they do come to market, they fetch well over $100K.
