1961 Austin Healey 3000 Mk II ‘tri-carb’

This car is for sale on behalf of clients.

Originally exported to Germany repatriated late 1980s and purchased by the current owner 26 years ago in 1991

Following a ground up restoration at Cape International in 1993 the car came a creditable 2nd in that years concours at the International Healey Week-end.

Painted OEW with contrasting black hardtop and fitted with its original bumpers this fabulous 3000 epitomises the ‘Clubman’s Healey’ with a choice of period accessories making this a very unique opportunity especially when compared to the rather sterile fresh restorations usually on sale.

Trimmed in black leather to standard specification the interior has aged beautifully, the 10,000 miles covered since restoration have added a lovely patina enhanced by its original (and rare) Derrington steering wheel.

Fresh from a trouble free trip to this year’s Classic Le-Mans its file includes a BMIHT certificate, current MOT and photographic record of restoration.

  • Fast-road engine with triple 2 inch SU carbs/Ruddspeed manifolds and matching alloy rocker cover
