Austin Healey 3000 MkIIIA “Special” – *** This is no ordinary Healey! ***


*** NEW PRICE ***
*** Price Reduced to Sell ***
This original factory RHD BJ8 Healey has been totally restored and modified in a sensitive manner. The car drives and presents like a new car and the tasteful modifications ensure it could be used as an every day driver! Additionally, its current owner has added a number of body features (akin to a “Rally Pack”) to give the car a more aggressive stance. Many people have commented that it looks more like an AC Cobra than an Austin Healey! The car was delivered new in the UK and found its way to the USA in the late 1960’s and was purchased there and imported to Australia in 2008.
