This 1965 Austin-Healey 3000 was acquired by the seller out of Upstate New York 19 years ago and subsequently refurbished with a replacement frame, a repaint in red and white, and interior reupholstery in ivory with red accents. Power comes from a replacement 2.9-liter straight-six equipped with dual SU carburetors and mated to a four-speed manual gearbox with overdrive. Additional equipment includes chrome knock-off wire wheels, a white soft top, burl wood dash trim, and a wood-rimmed Moto-Lita steering wheel. This BJ8 has been driven fewer than 100 miles since completion three years ago, and is offered with service records from current ownership and a clean Washington State title in the seller’s name.
The car was refinished in red with white coves and is equipped with a white convertible top. A dimple is noted in the right front section of the aluminum hood.
The front bumper has been removed, while remaining brightwork includes a rear bumper with overriders as well as Lucas fender mirrors. Chrome wire wheels with double-eared knock-off nuts are shod with Vredestein Sprint Classic tires.
The cockpit features front and rear seats upholstered in ivory with red piping as well as a matching console, center stack, and door panels. Red carpets cover the floors, and the car is equipped with front lap belts. Equipment includes a heater, a locking glove box, a radio blanking plate, and a rear backrest which folds flat for additional storage.
A wood-rimmed Moto-Lita steering wheel rests in front of a burl wood dash panel housing Smiths instrumentation including fuel level, oil pressure, and coolant temperature gauges as well as a speedometer, a tachometer, and a five-digit odometer reading approximately 47k miles. Fewer than 100 miles have reportedly been added since completion of the refurbishment three years ago, and actual mileage is unknown.
The replacement 2.9-liter inline-six was factory-rated at 150 horsepower with 158 lb-ft of torque when new and features polished dual SU carburetors, a Lucas ignition coil, and a Coventry radiator. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual gearbox.
The seller replaced the frame with a used version in better condition after acquiring the car.
