1960 Austin Healey 3000 Mk1

This Austin-Healey 3000 Mk1 rally replica is owned by businessman and star of Dragons Den, Theo Paphitis. It retains much of the 1960 Works spec, including the triple-SU carburettors on an engine built by Richard Parker Race Engines, which incorporates a Stage One gas-flowed cylinder head, a tubular exhaust manifold, a rally high-lift camshaft, plus plenty of other treats that make the car engine good for 185bhp.

Inside, there is a black crackle-painted dashboard, new instruments, a long, direct-action gear lever, and a Works spec hard top with ventilation scoop. The wiring is all new as are various key electrical components, the front wings feature factory vents, there is a twin-spares boot lid, and a custom made stainless steel side-exit exhaust.

Sold for: £60,750
