Upgraded to a fully synchronized 5-speed manual transmission mounted to the 2.9-liter in-line six-cylinder motor. Accompanied by the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate of Factory Record and the 3000 MK III handbook. Capturing the spirit of its racing heritage, the car is sporting badges from the British Racing Club and the British Royal Automobile Club on the front badge bar.

The successful Mark III was introduced in 1964 as the final iteration from the 3000 line-up which concluded in 1967. Also classified as the BJ8, the MKIII was produced exclusively in a 2+2 sports convertible configuration. It was also the most powerful of the ‘Big Healeys’, now producing 150 horsepower (previously 136 horsepower) with upgrades to the camshaft, valve springs, carburetors, and a new dual exhaust system. Other improvements for the MKIIIs included power brakes and a modified rear chassis to allow for more ground clearance. The Austin-Healey 3000s competed in prestigious races throughout the world and contributed to defining British motorsports for a generation of enthusiasts.
