An exercise in red

he Austin-Healey 3000 is a British sports car built from 1959 to 1967, and is the best known of the “big” Healey models. The 3000 Mark III was launched in October 1963, and remained in production until the end of 1967 when production of Austin-Healeys ceased. Classified as the BJ8, the new model was the most powerful and luxurious of the big Healeys, with a walnut-veneer dash, wind-up windows, and a 150 hp (112 kW) engine. Improvements to the engine included a new camshaft and valve springs, and twin SU 2″ HD8 carburetors, together with a new design of exhaust system.
