Lot #133613

This 1967 Austin-Healey 3000 BJ8 Mk III is said to have underwent a multi-year refurbishment under prior ownership, and it was acquired in California by the current owner in July 2023. Powered by a 2.9-liter inline-six linked to a four-speed manual transmission with overdrive, the car is finished in red over tan leather upholstery. It features a tan soft top, dual SU carburetors, an aluminum radiator, a stainless-steel exhaust system, 15″ knock-off wire wheels, power-assisted front disc brakes, Smiths instrumentation, and a heater. This BJ8 Mk III is now offered on dealer consignment with a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate, partial service records, a black top boot, a black California license plate, wheel removal tools, and a clean California title.

Finished from the factory in Colorado Red, the car was refinished in its current shade of red under prior ownership as part of the refurbishment. Exterior details include a tan fabric convertible top, a hood scoop, chrome bumpers and trim, fender-mounted mirrors, and twin exhaust outlets. A black top boot is included in the sale. The selling dealer notes the driver’s door does not latch properly unless closed firmly.

Silver-finished 15″ wire wheels are secured with two-eared knock-off spinners and mounted with 165-series Michelin XZX tires. A matching spare is located in the trunk, and stopping is provided by power-assisted front disc and rear drum brakes.

The reupholstered interior features seating surfaces trimmed in tan leather with perforated inserts along with matching door panels and color-coordinated carpeting. Burl wood veneer accents the dashboard, and appointments include a heater and defroster, a wooden shift knob, a dash-mounted rearview mirror, and a locking glove compartment.

The banjo-style steering wheel sits ahead of Smiths instrumentation consisting of a 140-mph speedometer, a 7k-rpm tachometer, and auxiliary gauges for fuel level, oil pressure, and coolant temperature. The five-digit odometer shows 68k miles, approximately 50 of which were added under current ownership. Total mileage is unknown.

The 2.9-liter inline-six is equipped with dual SU carburetors and an aftermarket aluminum radiator.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission with an electrically actuated overdrive unit. A polished stainless-steel exhaust system has been installed.

The British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate shows a dispatch date of September 5, 1966, and lists original colors, equipment, and delivery to Fort Worth, Texas.

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?
