This 1964 Austin-Healey 3000 BJ8 Mk III is said to have been acquired by the seller’s father from the original owner in August 1964, and subsequently spent time in Hawaii, South Carolina, and Alabama. The car is finished in white over red vinyl upholstery and is powered by a 2.9-liter inline-six linked to a four-speed manual transmission with overdrive. Additional equipment includes a black soft top, wood veneer interior trim, a push-button AM radio, 15″ wire wheels, front disc brakes, and dual SU carburetors. Work performed in preparation for the sale is said to have included rebuilding the fuel pump, tuning the carburetors, and repairing the ignition coils as well as replacing the clutch slave cylinder, battery, battery cable ends, and spark plugs. This BJ8 Mk III is now offered by the seller on behalf of their father with an Alabama registration document.

The car is finished in white and features a black soft top, a hood scoop, a driver-side mirror, vent windows, and chrome bumpers with overriders. Paint cracking, peeling, scratches, and dings are present around the body along with an indentation on the right-rear panel. The rear window is faded and does not zip into the top, and a mark is noted on the left side of the front bumper.

Silver 15″ wire wheels with knock-off hubs are mounted with 165-series Michelin XZX tires. Stopping power is provided by front discs and rear drums, and the braking system is said to have been bled in preparation for the sale.

The cabin features front bucket seats and rear jump seats trimmed in red vinyl with perforated inserts. Additional appointments include wood veneer dashboard trim, red carpets, a dash-mounted rearview mirror, a locking glove compartment, a push-button AM radio, and manual crank windows. Cracks are present on the wood veneer trim.

The banjo-style steering wheel fronts Smiths instrumentation consisting of a tachometer, a 140-mph speedometer, and supplementary gauges for oil pressure, water temperature, and fuel level. The five-digit odometer shows 82k miles, approximately 80k of which were added under current ownership. Total mileage is unknown.

The 2.9-liter inline-six is fed through dual SU carburetors that were recently cleaned and tuned according to the seller. Work performed in preparation for the sale is said to have included rebuilding the fuel pump and repairing the ignition coils as well as replacing the battery, battery cable ends, and spark plugs. The seller states the engine runs hot and leaks oil.

Power is sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission with overdrive. The clutch slave cylinder was reportedly replaced in preparation for the sale. Corrosion is present on the underside, and the seller reports the exhaust system is rusted through. The seller states an undercoating was applied when the car was new.

The car does not have a current title, as it is registered in a state that does not issue titles for vehicles of its age. It is being offered on its Alabama registration.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
