If you’ve ever stood next to both an early Austin-Healey 3000 and an Austin-Healey 100-6, you probably know that the 3000 was little more than a 100-6 with a bigger engine and updated brakes. Change would come in the mid 1960s, however, with the release of some major updates to the body styling, performance and technology. In fact, the 1959 Austin-Healey 3000 would be part of the first of three distinguishable versions: the MKI, MKII, and MKIII. The 1959 Healey 3000 MKI was offered in two open-top variations, which included the BN7 two-seat Roadster and the BT7 2+2 model. Some of the options that were available at the time, that would today add value to your classic, include wire wheels, an overdrive gearbox, a heater, an adjustable steering column, a hardtop and two-tone paint. If you’re looking to sell your classic 1959 3000, marketing any of the factory options your Healey came with can only add to the value


1959 Austin-Healey 3000 Seller’s Guide

The 1959 Austin-Healey 3000 is extremely rust prone. British cars of the 1950’s and 1960’s received little to no rust protection, which makes the weakest spots on these classics the chassis and body. Buyers are not always looking for pristine models, however. So whether your Healey has minimal rust damage or entire panels that will need to be replaced, as long as you price your classic accordingly, you should have interest. You see, buyers are looking for Austin-Healey 3000 MKI models of all types – from uncompleted restoration projects to mint-condition, fully-restored masterpieces.
