Selling a 1963 Austin-Healey 3000
After a quick, one-year production run of the MKII Austin-Healey, the MKIII arrived on the British sports car scene in 1963 and would run all the way to late 1967. Perhaps the biggest downfall of the 1963 Austin-Healey 3000 was that by the time it was produced, nearly all the technology and styling was obsolete. It was as though it was already a classic. Nevertheless, buyers still desired to own an Austin-Healey 3000 and craved its iconic styling and classic curvature. If you’re the proud owner of a 1963 Austin-Healey 3000, you can relate to this desire. There were also several upgrades that happened during this time. The roll-up windows that had been introduced on the BJ7 of 1962 now became standard, and a true convertible top now gave Healey drivers an uncompromising open-top experience. A new walnut burl dash panel and center console was also added, and made the MKIII Austin-Healey 3000 one of the most luxurious of the Big Healeys. These additions certainly helped the 3000 compete with the luxury brands of the time like Jaguar.
1963 Austin-Healey 3000 Seller’s Guide
Interestingly, there are two variations of the 1963 Austin-Healey 3000, generally differentiated as Phase I and Phase II. The Phase I cars are defined as the first 1,390 examples and have a cubby box at the end of the center console. After six months of production, the cubby box was eliminated and ride height was increased to solve the pesky problem of the exhaust scraping the ground. The Phase II, with the changes in ride height being a major selling feature, is often considered the more desirable of the 1963 Austin-Healey 3000 models. Which model do you have?
