The Austin Healey 3000 was born in 1959, beginning with the Mark I. It was just one of few soft-top roadsters that was offered to the American people. The Mark II began production in 1959, and was followed shortly by the most luxurious of the 3000’s, the Mark III, in 1963. The update included a new center console, toggle switches, and optional leather seating. With luxury, also came power. The Mark III produced 150 horsepower with upgraded carburetors and a new dual exhaust system. The Phase II version of the Mark III began after a chassis modification in 1964 that increased rear ground clearence.
