The Healey 1000 was a sensation at the Earl’s Court Motorshow in London in 1952. Initially Austin only supplied the engines but the tremendous success led to Austin taking over the entire production under Austin-Healey. Initially the roadster was a clonky but its continuous development turned the Austin-Healey into a cultivated sports car. In 1956 its 4-cylinder engine was replaced with 6 cylinders.
Our Austin-Healey 3000 is from the last series as MK III with 150 PS. The convertible edition with crank windows and a proper roof is most popular today. The classic car has been with the same owner since 1992 and has been partially restored. It has never been disassembled and its core is very solid. This 52-year old car is registered in Germany and in very good condition. This is very unusual for a car of its kind and makes it a collector’s item and a fully functioning car at the same time!
