1960 Austin-Healey 3000

During 1960, the Austin-Healey 3000 was widely considered to be one of the finest British sports cars of the time. Not only did enthusiasts and buyers pay attention to the brand, the cars were being driven to impressive victories on the European road rally circuit. This prestige led the Austin-Healey 3000 to be the best known of the Big Healeys, and the model continues to entice collectors and enthusiasts more than forty years later. The 1960 Austin-Healey 3000 was very similar to its predecessor, the 100-6. Offered in both a four-seater (the BT7) and a two-seater (the BN7), this MKI model also presented drivers with a larger and improved engine, when compared to the 100-6. To match the new engine, and in keeping with changes made by Jaguar and Triumph at the time, front brakes also became standard. classic car enthusiasts desire the 1960 Austin-Healey 3000 today, as it is easily one of the most recognizable and classic examples of British sports car excellence and the defining model of the Austin-Healey brand.


1960 Austin-Healey 3000 Seller’s Guide

When it comes time to sell your 1960 Austin-Healey 3000, there are a number of Seller’s Tips that the Alex Manos team can provide to ensure your success. First, as you may already know from the time you’ve spent with your Healey, weather protection was lacking during this era of automotive production and Austin-Healey models are prone to rust. Potential buyers will be inquisitive about rust damage. Because your buyers will likely come from all over the country, be sure to have current pictures of any rust damage that you can share online. If the buyer will be inspecting the car in person, you should allow for a third-party inspection. Secondly, the 1960 3000’s engine is known to be very sturdy, however, with a car that is more than forty years old, rebuilds are common. If you’ve done work on your Healey engine, having documentation adds value to your sale. Lastly, it is important to be realistic with your pricing. Do some research on the cars that have recently sold and compare them to your own. You can also enlist the services of the Alex Manos team to help you evaluate and appraise your classic to find a price that will attract buyers, without leaving any money on the table.
