The 3000 by Austin Healey is a British sports car built from 1959-1967….It is known as the “big-Healey”. The 3-liter 3000 was a highly successful car in which more than 90 Percent of them were exported, mostly to North America. They won numerous rallies and have been highly collectable for enthusiasts today. The final few years of production were the most powerful by quite a percentage, from 136 to 150 HP with a higher lift camshsaft. The inerior was also re-done making for a much more comfortable ride. GR Auto Gallery of Traverse City if very pleased to offer this very nice driver condition car that comes out of long term ownership. The seller purchased the car nearly 45 years ago in 1978 and has enjoyed it for many miles. In 2018 the owner did a frame on restoration of things that needed attention. At that time, he did new brakes and linings, rebuilt the front end, did a carburetor rebuild, wires and plugs. In addition, he also had the car re-painted, did carpeting in the cabin and vinyl in the trunk area. He also re-built the transmission and clutch along with a new top. All of these things were done less than 3,000 miles ago. The car, starts, runs, shifts and accelerates very good and sounds awesome with the dual exhaust coming out the drivers side. This would be a very good example to use and drive. Does not appear to leak or smoke and seems to be very good mechanically.
