1967 Austin-Healey 3000 MkIII BJ-8 Roadster 2.9L engine


Description


Left hand drive American export car
2.9L engine
4-speed manual transmission
Wire wheels
Adjustable steering column
Heater
New SU carburetors and a higher-lift cam helped the 3000cc engine find 14 additional horses for a square 150 HP. It took less than 9 seconds to find 60 MPH from zero and could top out around 120 MPH, marking it the quickest and fastest of the last “Big Healeys.” To boot, they boasted magnificently appointed dashboards with beautiful wood veneers, supportive bucket seats and several noticeable points that lent to the question, why buy anything else? Interestingly, Austin-Healey 3000s, especially the MkIIIs, have never really fallen out of favor, long enjoying a large and loyal fanbase keeping them popular. Few things stir the emotions like firing up a Big Healey and setting out for a journey upon lonely, winding roads to points unknown. The big 3.0L engine growling along and the exhaust howling a note unlike any other, suddenly the destination is not nearly as important as the journey.
