For sale is a 1966 Austin Healey 3000 MKIII, located in our Indianapolis, Indiana showroom. The most comfortable, and most luxurious model among all Austin-Healeys, the 3000 Mark III marked the epitome of the open British sports car and is widely considered an iconic example of the best of the era. Announced in February 1964 and built through December 1967, the 3000 Mk III BJ8 was the final version of the beloved “Big Healey,” and represents the highest refinement of the marque. As the last itineration of the ‘Big Healeys,’ it is fitting that the cars in the BJ8 series are the best equipped, both inside and out. The cockpit features a dashboard of burled walnut, with the speedometer and tachometer moved to be directly in front of the driver, and upholstery was upgraded to Ambia vinyl. Mechanically, SU HD8 carburetors increased the choke size, while power-assisted braking became standard; power output increased and a top speed of nearly 120 mph for the 1966 model was reported. Phase II models, such as the example offered here, received separate indicator lights and a modified rear chassis that raised the ground clearance.

With a 3 liter smooth running inline six for a beating heart this car is paired to a 4 speed transmission with overdrive produces 150hp and 173lb-ft of torque that helps propel this open air rocket down the road and carving around corners in true British Sports car fashion. This 3 liter engine emits a nice and smooth purrrr as it idles out, and shifts smoothly as you cruise down the road. The Austin Healey MK III corners like no other in its class and inspires confidence as you accelerate out of the apex in of the corner. The feeling of nostalgia will wash over you as you slide into the drivers seat and turn the motor over and listen to this purr as you prepare to take on the windy back country roads in your area. This 1966 Austin-Healey 3000 Mark III convertible for sale is located in our Indianapolis Showroom and can be seen at www.GatewayClassicCars.com, or call (317)688-1100 for additional information.
