Small, tossable and extremely fun right out of the box, this virtually spotless 3000 was professionally rebuilt in preparation for the 2014 Hilton Head Island Motoring Festival & Concours d’Elegance. 1 of only 17,712 Mark IIIs produced, the car is innately exclusive. And, if you’re looking for a fully sorted, fully pedigreed Austin that’s also a blast to drive, it’s the ‘big Healey’ of your dreams! Roughly 2 years out of a detailed restoration, this 2-owner Mk III was completely rebuilt by Harrisburg, North Carolina’s Carolina Sports Imports and Charlotte, North Carolina’s Mike’s Auto Body Repair. Finished in a fresh coat of PPG 2-stage, the car reflects smooth Toyota Sand Stone Beige that’s extremely similar to its original Golden Beige Metallic single-stage. And it all adds up to one lust worthy 3000 that puts most European metal to shame! Mechanically, this Austin exemplifies top-notch detailing through a rare twin-carb engine that appears to have been completely rebuilt. Tilt the lightweight hood and you’ll find 2.9 liters of 29A 6-cylinder that looks good and runs great! Based on British Motor Corporation’s stalwart C-Series, Austin’s inline mill isn’t a grossly overpowered piece. But it’s certainly proven its ability to jet this compact roadster out of many tight curves, and cruise comfortably in just about any situation its owners’ demanded. Behind that engine, a fresh 5-speed utilizes a tough hydraulic clutch to compliment Austin’s built-in canyon prowess with great highway manners that aren’t afforded by original 4-speeds. Stops come courtesy of manual front disc and rear drum brakes. And at the corners of the floor, correct wire wheels spin 185HR15 Vredestein Sprint Classics around fresh knock-offs. If you’re an enthusiast who likes to put their hardware on the pavement, few classics deliver this blend of fun and exclusivity.
