1962 Austin Healey 3000

For sale is my 1962 Austin Healey 3000 Mk 2, in the unusual colour combination of red over black, and with a matching red interior trim colour. This car comes complete with an incredibly rare original works hardtop. This Is not a modern reproduction item; this is an original factory hardtop and if you’ve ever tried to find one you will know how difficult they are to come by. All the other weather equipment is with the car including side screens, soft top and tonneau cover all in excellent condition. I have owned the car for over 8 years now and the sale is forced only through life changes. In my ownership she has been well cared for, including full engine rebuild to Mk 3 specification, that’s Mk3 cam shaft, and twin 2-inch SU HD8 carburettors. Some gentle head polishing and a 6 branch Denis Welch manifold help to give spirited performance. The gearbox and overdrive have also been overhauled and she has the desirable 3.54 diff ratio. Also, with a full Denis Welch constant clearance steering box, assembled by Jeremy Welch himself, that is as close to rack and pinion steering as its possible to get with a steering box. Bodywork is in very good condition, and she is a car that has been used for my entire ownership, she isn’t a trailer queen that’s been hidden away. I would happily get in this car and drive to the top of Scotland tomorrow, without a moment’s hesitation or worry. Sensibly priced to sell so no silly offers please and any questions please feel free to contact me.
