This car is something else. In stunning condition and a proper usable classic car. Built in 1966 and matured into one of the most sought after classics on the market today.

The Austin Healey 3000 has become one of the best known British classic cars of the 1950s and 1960s following spectacular success in international rallying and on the race track. The development of the Austin Healey 100-6, itself born out of the four-cylinder 100, the 3000 (MK I) was launched in March 1959 and was a significant improvement to the earlier Healey`s. For example, the new 3000 featured front disc brakes, wire wheels as standard and a more powerful 124bhp 2,912cc BMC C-Series engine, ensuring a top speed of approximately 120mph. There was also a choice of two-seater (BN7) or 2+2 (BT7) body styles. The new 3000 was an instant success on the road, on the track and on the rally stage and has enjoyed a large club following since the 1950s.

With a lusty, six-cylinder soundtrack, the Austin-Healey 3000 is one of the most evocative British classics around.
