AUSTIN HEALEY 3000 (1959-1967) CAR HISTORY

Car review on AUSTIN HEALEY 3000

The original “big” Healey was the Healy 100, first shown at the Earls Court show in 1952 and hastily adopted by BMC as the Austin Healy 100 with the 2.6 liter four-cylinder engine from the Austin Atlantic. Bodies were built by Jensen of West Bromwich, central England, with final assembly at the MG factory at Abingdon, Oxfordshire. In no way was the Healey a sophisticated motorcar: it had a separate chassis, cam-and-peg steering and a solid rear axle sprung and located by half elliptic leaf springs. In 1956 the six cylinder BMC series C engine from the Austin Westminsters was shoehorned into a stretched version of the car to make the 100/6. However, this wasn't entirely successful: performance was down compared with the torquey old four.


Redemption arrived in the form of the three-litre 3000 Mkl in 1959: outwardly the same pretty, shapely, low-slung two-seater but with a 2912cc 124 bhp engine. Performance went up to 114 mph (183 kph), while new front disc brakes improved the stopping power. Overdrive, wire wheels and nominal two-plus-two seating were optional as before. For 1961 BMC upped the power to 132 bhp with triple SU carburettors for the MkII 3000, followed a year later by the MkIIa with wind-up windows, a curved windscreen and a proper, fully convertible hood. From this point the cars were two-plus-two only and can be recognized by a vertical-slat front grille.


Last, and best, of the line was the 1964 MkIII with improved breathing for 148 bhp, pushing the top speed to over 120 mph (193 kph). Brakes were improved by a servo and, inside, the car had a rather opulent wooden dashboard, somewhat at odds with its macho reputation as a rugged driver's car.


North America was always the car's biggest market and it was American safety legislation that finally ousted the 3000 from production in 1967, after which BMC replaced it with the far less successful MGC. Despite its low ground clearance the Healey was a formidable works rally car in three-liter form and was never quite the crude and rugged car of legend, certainly in later form. It remains one of the most sought-after British sports cars of the 1960s.
