Our Austin-Healey 3000 MK III (Phase 2) LHD example – chassis HBJ 8L 32758 – was originally exported to the United States of America in 1965 and would return to Europe, imported to Germany in the mid 1980‘s. Following a restoration period, the private importer would eventually sell the car in 1989 where it would remain in the same family until today. The original Sales Contract is still in the extensive history file dated 28.08.1989, along with a host of other receipts and invoices collected over the thirty year plus ownership. The new Bosch Workshop owners regularly maintained and indeed used the car accordingly with just one of the highlights participating in the 1996 North Cape Challenge Rally, covering almost 6000 kilometers. An original Halda Tripmaster is still fitted in the glovebox. * Recently, a new kilometer Tacho has replaced the Miles version for ease of continental driving. It’s estimated that the car has covered some 15,000 miles in the families 3 decade plus tenure. All in all, it’s a well looked after example that has actually been enthusiastically driven instead of parked in a garage and admired from underneath a protective cover!
