This 1964 Austin-Healey 3000 BJ8 Mk III is a four-seat convertible that was acquired by the seller from the previous owner’s estate in 2020. The car is finished in red over over black vinyl upholstery and is powered by a 2.9-liter inline-six paired with a four-speed manual gearbox with overdrive. Equipment includes a black soft top, a wood dashboard, a heater, a stainless-steel exhaust system, and 15″ knock-off wire wheels. The dual SU carburetors, suspension, generator, starter, and radiator are said to have been rebuilt under current ownership in addition to replacing the brakes, belts, hoses, fuel pump, thermostat, and ignition system. This 3000 BJ8 Mk III is now offered with spare parts and a clean Nebraska title in the seller’s name.

The body was reportedly repainted in its current red finish under previous ownership. The seller states that the car is equipped with a replacement black soft top, and additional features include chrome bumpers and trim along with polished twin exhaust outlets.

The 15″ wire wheels were reportedly refinished under previous ownership and are mounted with 165-series tires. Suspension work performed under current ownership is said to have included rebuilding the shocks and replacing the coil springs, control arm bushings, and shock links. The braking system was also refreshed with a replacement hydraulic cylinder, hydraulic lines, flexible hoses, rear wheel cylinders, and front calipers, rotors, and pads.

The interior is upholstered in black vinyl with white piping joined by a matching dash topper, center console, and door panels. Additional interior features include a heater, a wood dashboard, and a dash-mounted rearview mirror. The seller states that the seat bottoms were refurbished and the trunk mat and carpets were replaced under previous ownership. A replacement walnut wood dashboard is included in the sale.

The rim of the banjo-style steering wheel is cracked. Smiths instrumentation consists of a 140-mph speedometer, a tachometer with a 5,500-rpm redline, and auxiliary gauges monitoring fuel level, oil pressure, and water temperature. The five-digit odometer shows 71k miles, and total mileage is unknown.

The 2.9-liter inline-six is fed by dual SU carburetors and was factory rated at 150 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque. The carburetors, generator, starter, and radiator were reportedly rebuilt under current ownership in addition to replacing the belts, hoses, fuel pump, sending unit, thermostat, and ignition system.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual gearbox with overdrive. Work performed under current ownership reportedly included removing and resealing the fuel tank as well as installation of a stainless-steel exhaust system.

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?
