1967 Austin Healy BJ8 Mark III Phase II This is the last year Austin Healeys were made and the largest engine ever produced…150 HP with top speed of 120 MPH. Previous owner was English and owned the car for 30 years. It has only been driven in the rain twice. Below is a list of what has been done to the classic Austin Healey.

They balanced and trued the wheels, tires and the drums. He used a lathe to do the job. The results were incredible. I have copies of all of the work that has been done on the car since I purchased it in 2014. The only thing that I know of that one may want to address is that 2nd gear comes out of place sometimes while coasting down a slight grade. I am told it is a simple repair. There is a nylon ball and spring that holds it in 2nd gear and the spring has lost its tension. I have not had it repaired because I had just finished insulating the transmission/drive train tunnel and did not want to disturb my work. Everything about this car is in excellent condition for a 50 year old English car. Anyone who really knows these cars or has owned one will understand that there is quite a bit invested into this car and the value is there.
