AH 1

A 1967 Austin Healey 3000 MK III, the very last series production car that rolled off the line at the Abingdon factory, will be auctioned as part of CCA’s two-day mega sale at the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show on Sunday, April 2nd .

Chassis Number HBJ843025 was produced on December 21, 1967 and first registered to the Donald Healey Motor Company in Warwick with the registration number OAC 656.

It went through two more registered keepers in the Leicester area before the current vendor purchased the car in 1972.

This BJ8 is an original, right-hand drive manual car that has covered 56,000 miles in 50 years. The car benefitted from a fresh restoration just one year ago and was subject to a bare metal respray in Golden Beige Metallic.

The car is estimated at between £75,000 and £90,000 when it goes under the hammer at the NEC, Birmingham.
