Of all the full production Austin-Healey models, the Mk III 3000 model is by far the most desirable today. Not only is it faster, it is also more refined, better equipped and the most comfortable. It is a very sporting and enjoyable car to drive with a successful competition history to boot. The Austin-Healey 3000s fared very well in races, particularly hillclimbs, and in 1964 won the Liege-Rome-Liege run and the Austrian Alpine Rally.

Finished in Gold with a Fawn leather and vinyl interior, this car’s nut-and-bolt restoration was just completed by the marque specialists Tom and Randee Rocke at Healey Lane. The car was finished in two-stage DuPont Chroma base in two separate paint applications to give this Gold color superb depth and luster. The Fawn leather and vinyl interior has matching English wool carpeting – certainly a unique and rarely seen color combination.

As part of the complete restoration, the engine, transmission and overdrive were completely rebuilt to original specifications. Mileage currently stands at 63,500. All new fuel lines, fuel tank, rear leaf springs, front suspension and springs, brakes, lines, cables, cloth wiring harness and electrical components were also fitted. Additionally, the chrome wire wheels, road speed tires (185X15), steel exhaust system, door mechanisms and handles and walnut dash are also new. The original gauges were rebuilt but the steering wheel, interior, convertible hood with hood bag, windshield, door glass and rubber were all replaced with new components as well.

A Healey Lane restoration speaks for itself. Tom and Randee Rocke are well respected in Austin-Healey circles, and this restoration is proof positive of this. In addition to a full photo-documented binder of the restoration, the car includes a copy of the British Heritage Trust certificate, confirming this to be a matching numbers car.
