Austin discovered the Healey at the Donald Healey motor corporation booth prior to the 1952 Earls Court Motor Show. Leonard Lord, then Austin director, bought Healey’s production rights before the stock market opened. The Healey was built by Donald Healey from Austin parts, which was of course ideal for Austin. Austin saw in the Healey the answer to the Triumph TR sports car from the Standard-Triumph concern. The 100/4 was the first Austin Healey.
The Healey 3000 was the successor to the Healey’s 100/4 and 100/6 and was built between 1959 and 1968. The Austin Healey 3000 is also called “Big Healey” because of its powerful six-cylinder engine. The 3000 was the first Healey with front disc brakes and power brakes. During the 8 years of production of the popular Austin-Healey 3000, 3 different versions were released. These were the MK1, the MK2 and the MK3.

This Healey was completely restored in 2019-early 2020. This can be demonstrated by the dozens of invoices that are present.

This American exported MK1 is in beautiful condition. The red paint has a sublime appearance and this can also be said about the black interior. The interior is included with;
– Solid Wood Rimmed Steering Wheel
– Leather Seat Cover Kit BJ7
– Vinyl hood AH BT7

The highly sought-after Overdrive applies to this MK1. Under the hood is a powerful 3 liter 6 cylinder block that produces 124 HP.
It is equipped with side screens, hood and tonneau cover, items that were renewed during the restoration. They are in a very good condition. The chrome work and the chrome spoke rims of the car look excellent.

In addition to the large number of invoices, a BMIHT (British Motor Industry Heritage Trust) Certificate is also present.
