1965 Austin-Healey 3000 BJ8 – Original

Over at Bringatrailer.com there is a wonderful looking Austin-Healey 3000 BJ8 that is original, unrestored, near immaculate, and for sale.

It certainly looks beautiful and there are a sizable number of photos showing the car outside, inside and underneath, including showing rust repair work, which sounds to have been moderate and professionally done.

The car also sounds beautiful. I’ve never known a big Healey that didn’t.

At time of writing there was one day and fourteen hours left to bid on this auction by BaT.

This looks like a car that is in really nice condition, that will need some work as any second hand car does, and a car that could become a great joy to own, work on, and drive.
