Finished in Coloardo Red, this 1965 3000 MkIII (BJ8), with Black Trim, Matching Black Hood and Sparkling 72 Spoke Chrome Wire Wheels was Sold New on 31st July 1965 to D.P. Myrick of Marietta, Georgia USA and was Retained by the Original Owner's Family for some 48 Years before being Imported to Australia in 2013, Including it's Original 'Passport to Service'.

Since it's Arrival in Australia, the Healey has seen Significant Expenditure on Both Cosmetic and Mechanical Refurbishment which are Detailed in a Comprehensive Receipt File with Accompanying Photographs.
