Completed on 20 or 21 August 1964 and dispatched to San Francisco, California later that month, this car was originally finished in Dark British Racing Green over a Black interior. Acquired by the consignor, a Swiss enthusiast, in 2006, it was subject to a total restoration by marque specialist Kurt Tanner Motorcars of Santa Ana, California. It now wears an attractive coat of California Sage exterior paint over a Magnolia interior; its green convertible top is complimented by a green top boot. Wire knock-off wheels sit at each corner, along with a spare tucked into the trunk. All are presently wrapped in period-appropriate Michelin XAS tires.
While the car remains in excellent cosmetic condition, it has also been enjoyed on the road, including participation in the 2011 and 2012 editions of the Bahama Speed Week Revival. According to the consignor, notable upkeep performed on this Austin Healey under his care includes rebuilt shocks and a major drivetrain alignment, both in 2009, as well as brake and engine service completed by Enrico Gozzi of Davos, Switzerland in July 2018.
Meticulously restored by a respected specialist and scrupulously maintained ever since, this appealing 3000 MK III BJ8 represents the most powerful, advanced, and comfortable generation of the celebrated Big Healeys. Accompanied by a British Motor Industries Heritage Trust certificate, an owner’s manual, and restoration photos, it is an ideal companion for show and touring.
