Our 1962 Austin Healey 3000 MKII traces its origins back to the UK, where Jensen Motors—partnered with BMC in Abingdon—manufactured these British sports cars from 1959-1967. Originally an open sports car, the MKII line, which launched at the end of August 1962, was the first convertible in the 3000 Mark family.
Additionally, the Twin SU HS6 carburetors replaced the original triple Sus, which allowed this word-class design to exceed 100mph (132 horsepower). Today, enthusiasts still race the Austin Healey 3000 in classic car competitions. Elegant and sleek, the Austin Healey 3000 was once a mark of sophistication. Today, it nods its head to the line of cars that both paralleled and succeeded it, taking its place in history as one of the staples that paved the way for elite British motoring.
