1965 Austin Healey 3000 Mark III
Date Of Registration: 1965

What could be more traditional than a "Big Healey"? How about a British Racing Green Big Healey?

Registered in August 1965, DAV 341C is a "BJ8" Mark III. These cars represented a significant update over earlier cars featuring larger SU carburettors which helped boost power to a claimed 150bhp, servo assisted brakes and a top speed of 120mph.

Equipped with rear seats the cars made a practical 2+2 alternative other sports cars of the time which combined with a long history of competition success enjoyed by Healey made the car an attractive proposition then as they are today.

Most 3000's were exported to the US and UK right hand drive cars are therefore relatively rare. Fortunately this is exactly what DAV 341C is, an original UK right-hand-drive with engine, body and chassis number stampings which match the appropriate documentation. A rare find indeed.

Better still from 2012 – 2014, she underwent a fantastic, fully documented, nut and bolt restoration which has left here today in effectively as new condition with only 500 miles of road test mileage recorded.

Mechanically the car is in first class order. The engine is smooth and mechanically quiet and steering brakes and suspension taught and responsive. She is an absolute pleasure to drive.

With only 7 previous keepers over the past 55 year and supplied with a heritage certificate, V5, 12 months MOT, all reciepts and bills and a CMC warranty, this car is turn-key Healey motoring. One of the best “big Healey’s” we have seen. You will not be disappointed.
