Austin-Healey 3000 MKIII LHD



Austin-Healey 3000 MKIII LHD – Built in November 1966, finished in Ice Blue with blue interior and hood, the car was dispatched to Paris, France and later was exported to the United States. Quite often, US servicemen or diplomats who were still in Europe after WW2, ordered British sports cars which were later exported back with them to the USA.


The early history is relatively unknown but in the late 1970’s the car was purchased by a family in Colorado who owned the car for just over 40 years. After a period of remaining unused in the late 1990’s, the car was then recommissioned in 2003 and used sparingly until 2016 when the current owner bought the car from the US and imported it to the UK. The car was converted to UK road specification and MOT’d.


During the current ownership of 8 years, the car has completed approx. 2,000 miles, with the current mileage reading 41,393. It is not known if this is genuine mileage, but it is thought to be correct. During that time, the following work has been performed (mostly completed here at Bill Rawles Classic Cars):


Waxoyl inside chassis members

New mohair hood cover

New Moto-Lita wood rimmed steering wheel

New radiator & cooling fan

Conversion to negative earth and replace dynamo with alternator

New electronic distributor

New hi-torque starter motor

New front calipers, master cylinder & brake pipes

New brake servo

New rear dampers

Full body re-spray (external, not bare metal)

New battery

New mohair hood


The car presents itself in good condition and able to be used immediately, being LHD it does suit itself to someone who is looking to do some continental touring but a RHD conversion is available and is not something to stop you from purchasing this car.


Priced competitively and open to sensible offers.

Did you know? We do not own our sales cars, we sell on a fixed commission of £1,800 +vat which is included in the price, this is not % based incentivised commission sale, so we feel our cars are priced at the correct market values. Every car is checked and inspected before sale, and we are happy to discuss defects and potential issues as well as positives and point these out before purchase. Whilst it cannot be expected that an old vehicle can be 100% fault free, our passion is driven by putting the right people with the right cars based on your budget and requirements. You can buy your Healey with confidence from a trusted and reputable dealer. If you would like to sell your classic car with us, call Jack Rawles on 01420 564343.
