1961 Austin-Healey 3000

The 1961 model-year marked the end of production for the Austin-Healey MKI, which had been the widely anticipated replacement for the 100-6 and was produced from 1959 to 1961. Similar to the 100-6 in many ways, the 3000 MKI offered a larger, improved engine and front disk brakes. It was also available as a 2+2 configuration (BT7) or as a BN7 two-seater Roadster. Approximately 14,000 of the MKI Austin-Healey 3000 models were sold before the MKII replaced it at the end of 1961. If you’re the owner of a 1961 Austin-Healey 3000 MKI and are thinking about selling, the two-seater BN7 model is perhaps the most desired of the two body styles, with options such as two-tone paint, wire wheels, a hardtop, and an overdrive gearbox adding to the value. Today’s classic car collectors and Austin-Healey enthusiasts are searching for 3000 models of all conditions. Whether you’re selling a restoration project that you simply don’t have the time to finish, a rolling chassis that needs a complete restoration, or a mint-condition, showroom quality example, your car is sure to garner interest in the market.


1961 Austin-Healey 3000 Seller’s Guide

Selling your 1961 Austin-Healey 3000 on your own can be quite the task. First, there is the process of determining value. Sometimes this is quite difficult for owners who are emotionally attached to their classics or who have little to no experience in classic cars. Then, once a price is established, there is the issue of knowing where to post your car for sale. Do you post an advertisement in the local paper? Should you post an online advertisement? How will you differentiate between serious buyers and those who are just looking? Once you have a qualified potential buyer, you now have showings and inspections to coordinate, test-drives to take, questions to answer, financing to approve and more. Selling a classic car like the 1961 Austin-Healey can be a full-time job. All this can be forgotten when you choose to partner with the Alex Manos team – a renowned California classic car dealership.
