1967 Austin Healey BJ8 3000 Mk.III
Silver blue exterior/Blue interior
VIN: HBJ8L/38026
Frame: HBJ8L/33353
Body: 3227 BJ8 83012

This car has seen a comprehensive cosmetic restoration. The paint, interior, and underside are outstanding. It is likely that a substantial amount of mechanical work was done to the car at the same time the cosmetic work was done, but there are no records with the car to outline specific mechanical tasks completed.

The body number matches the VIN number. Although a correct BJ8 frame, the frame number is different than originally delivered with car number HBJ8L/38026. It is likely that this frame was used to replace a heavily rusted chassis during the restoration process, which is common practice when restoring British cars of this genre. There is no engine number tag. The car is fitted with the correct BJ8 semi-elliptic, radius rod rear suspension, and wood dash, but has the pull handle doors characteristic of the BJ7.

While perhaps not the car for the purist, this is an fantastic example to use and enjoy at a price far less than one would pay for an all numbers matching car.
