This is a big Healey from my early days! Approx. 20 years ago this 3000 MKIII crossed my path when I just had plans to start up my classic car business. An American classic car enthusiast brought his big Healey over to Europe to enjoy life in the south of France...! The car was sound but in very average condition and had suffered from some shipping damage. The owner asked me to bring his Austin Healey to a presentable and roadworthy condition. As can be seen from the photos 20 years later this BJ8 is still looking nice, which surely means my first job wasn't apparently a bad one! Just 5 years ago I had the chance to buy this Healey back and sold her easily to one of my Belgian customers. It gave me the chance to improve some technical and cosmetic aspects at that time. As with many of my classic cars also this Austin Healey, just as a boomerang, is now back with me again. I am pleased to present this typical British 'hair on the chest' sportscar again on the market and make yet another enthusiast happy. Being the ultimate evolution of the 3000 Healey model, this BJ8 is known by the connoisseurs for being a smooth and very useable, yet very potent sportscar, offering excellent performances from the healthy 150 HP produced by the six-in-line. Relaxed and effortless touring on French "routes nationales" or motorways guaranteed thanks to overdrive gearbox. With the hood down the driver enjoys good comfort because of the panoramic windscreen and wind-up side windows. If the weather does not permit, one can close the top easily with just 1 manipulation. Servo assisted brakes provide good stopping power. The beautiful wooden dashboard and the correct Smith instruments are typical British tourer features. Still in excellent condition, not concours but very presentable and in excellent running order, this big Healey represents good value for money for the enthusiast who wants in the first place a drivers-sportscar. Could this be you?
