This 1966 Austin-Healey 3000 BJ8 Mk III is a 2+2 roadster that was acquired by the current owner in 2002 and subsequently refurbished. Work included sheet metal repair and a repaint in Healy Blue and white as well as a refresh of the blue leather interior. Power is from a rebuilt 2.9-liter inline-six paired with a four-speed manual transmission with overdrive, and features include a blue soft top, 15″ knock-off wire wheels, front disc brakes, Bilstein shocks, a wood dashboard, and an adjustable steering column. The fluids were changed in September 2021. This 3000 BJ8 Mk III is now offered on dealer consignment with service records, refurbishment photos, a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate, and a clean Oregon title.

The body panels were removed and stripped before rust and dent repair was carried out. The car was then repainted in Healy Blue and white. Equipment includes a blue soft top, 3/4-vent windows, chrome bumpers and trim, and dual exhaust outlets.

Chrome 15″ wire wheels are mounted with two-eared knockoffs and wear Vredestein Sprint Classic tires. A spare wheel and tire are housed in the trunk. The suspension was overhauled during the refurbishment and fitted with Bilstein shocks. Braking is handled by front discs and rear drums.

The 2+2 cockpit was refreshed during the refurbishment and features blue leather upholstery and a refinished wood dashboard. Features include roll-up side windows, a dash-mounted rearview mirror, bright trim, a wooden shift knob, and Austin-Healey–branded rubber floor mats.

The wood-rimmed steering wheel fronts Smiths instrumentation consisting of a 140-mph speedometer, a tachometer with a 5,500-rpm redline, and auxiliary gauges. The five-digit odometer shows 29k miles. True mileage is unknown.

The 2.9-liter inline-six was also overhauled during the refurbishment and is equipped with dual SU carburetors. The fluids were changed in September 2021.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission and a Laycock overdrive unit.

The BMIHT certificate lists factory colors, component serial numbers, factory-fitted equipment, and dispatch to a dealership in Kenosha, Wisconsin in March 1966.

This 1966 Austin-Healey 3000 BJ8 Mk III is a 2+2 roadster that underwent a multi-year refurbishment in the 2000s and was sold on BaT in December 2021 before being recently acquired by the selling dealer. It is powered by a rebuilt 2.9-liter inline-six paired with a four-speed manual transmission with overdrive. The car is finished in two-tone blue and white over blue leather upholstery, and equipment includes a blue soft top, 15″ knock-off wire wheels, front disc brakes, Bilstein shocks, dual SU carburetors, front bucket seats, wood trim, and a cabin heater. This 3000 Mk III is now offered by the selling dealer with a tonneau cover and a clean Ohio title.

The refurbishment included removing and stripping body panels before repairing rust and dents, and the exterior was refinished in two-tone Old English White over Healey Ice Blue. Exterior features include a folding blue soft top, a tonneau cover, a hood scoop, bright trim, and chrome bumpers with overriders. Touched-up blemishes are visible.

Chrome 15″ knock-off wire wheels are mounted with two-eared knockoffs and wear 165-series Vredestein Sprint Classic tires that were installed in 2021. A spare wheel and tire are housed in the trunk. The suspension was overhauled during the refurbishment and fitted with Bilstein shocks. Braking is handled by front discs and rear drums.

The refreshed 2+2 cabin features bucket seats and individual rear seats trimmed in blue leather, and interior appointments include a refinished wood dashboard, a center console, a wooden shift knob, a locking glovebox, a cabin heater, and Austin-Healey-branded rubber floor mats.

The wood-rimmed steering wheel frames Smiths black-dial instrumentation consisting of a 140-mph speedometer, a 7k-rpm tachometer, a fuel-level gauge, and a combination gauge displaying oil pressure and water temperature. The five-digit odometer shows 29k miles. Total mileage is unknown.

The 2.9-liter inline-six was also overhauled during the refurbishment and is equipped with dual SU carburetors. The seller notes a service was completed in preparation for the sale.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission and a Laycock overdrive unit.

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?
