Car to be at auction 1/22
1959 Austin-Healey 3000 Roadster
OFFERED WITHOUT RESERVE
• First year for the 3000 model
• Nicely appointed restoration
• British roadster with classic and sporty styling
• Equipped with a removable hardtop
3-litre straight six engine, 135 HP, four-speed manual gearbox with overdrive, independent front suspension with coil springs, live rear axle suspension, rear-wheel drive; wheelbase: 92”
Looking to be taken to the track with its rally lights already mounted to the front, is this nicely restored 1959 Austin-Healy 3000. Its small, lightweight body is painted in an appealing red and sits on chrome wire spoke wheels. The brightwork shines nicely throughout the body and a luggage rack is attached to the rear deck, adding to its overall sporty look.
The interior has a 2+2 seating arrangement and features black leather with tasteful red piping. The sporty cabin has black carpet and a black dash that highlights the wood grain steering wheel.
The straight six 3-litre engine presents extremely well and is in top performing condition. The engine is paired with a four-speed manual gearbox with optional overdrive. With that powertrain combination and an overall weight of only 2,550 pounds, you have one speedy machine that can easily maneuver tight corners at a quick pace.
Included with the sale of this Austin-Healey is the matching removable hard top, a spare tire and an assortment of original documents that include a “The Austin Warranty” sheet. The Austin-Healey 3000 on offer here is a fine example of the legendary model as well as an apt embodiment of everything enthusiasts love about the classic British sports car.
