It was previously owned by Kurt Tanner of Tanner Restorations, an Austin-Healey marque specialist. The car's previous owner gave it a ground-up, panels-off restoration in 2010. Kurt Tanner was born in the United Kingdom and emigrated to the United States in 1977. At the age of 8 he was interested in and rebuilt Honda 50cc and 70cc mini-bikes. A mechanical hand-eye coordination was cultivated early on in his life. At the age of 12 he purchased his first British sports car, a restoration project 1959 Triumph TR-3A Roadster for the princely sum of $300. This car started his interest in classic European sports cars and eventually led to the purchase of several Austin Healeys and Jaguar E-types as with the one you see here today. Even almost 20 years after World War II, two-seat sports cars from Europe captured the imagination of some American drivers, regardless of whether they served in the military. While there had been some domestic alternatives after the war, none captured the nimble handling associated with British two-seaters. This car was sold new in Odense, Denmark in June of 1961 and later brought into the USA by Aerospace Research Inc. of North Carolina. Finished in factory correct Ivory White, this example's paint and trim are in very good order overall. The bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is extremely tidy, the car's chrome bumpers are clean and fit tightly to the body. There is a full-size spare tire behind the driver and passenger seats, under a cover that matches the rest of the interior. This two-seater rolls on radial tires, size 165/80R15 at every corner. Each tire is mounted on a 60-spoke wire wheel and the front wheels have disk brakes. The tires and wheels are all in very good order. Under the hood is a 2.9L straight six-cylinder OHV engine with three SU HS4 carburetors. This motor is mated to a four-speed manual transmission with a 3.54:1 rear end. Inside, the car's red leather upholstery is in very good order, as is the matching red carpet. A black, three-spoke steering wheel faces the driver while the inner door panels are in good, original order. The red instrument panel is in very good order and there's a optional Smith heater and optional speedometer in MPH. A floor-mounted shifter rounds out the interior. The Austin-Healey 3000 is a British sports car built from 1959 to 1967. It is the best known of the "Big Healey" models. The car's bodywork was made by Jensen Motors and the vehicles were assembled at BMC's MG Works in Abingdon, England, alongside the corporation's MG models. During its production life, the car changed from an open sports car, albeit with a child-transporting 2+2 option, to a sports convertible. In 1963, 91.5 percent of all Austin-Healey 3000 cars were exported, mostly to North America. The 3L 3000 was a highly successful car, which won its class in many European rallies in its heyday and is still raced in classic car competitions by enthusiasts today. Competition to this Austin in 1962 included Alfa Romeo's 2600 Spider, Chevrolet's Corvair Monza Spyder Convertible, Daimler's SP250 and Porsche's 356 B/2000 GS Cabriolet. This car presents a rare opportunity to acquire the lowest production Austin-Healey roadster in its original shade of color.
