After a classic British sports car from a golden age of motoring? You can’t get better than an Austin Healey 3000. Produced from 1959 to 1967, it is the best known of the so dubbed ‘Big Healey’ models from this much loved British automotive giant of yesteryear.
This cool convertible was very much a meeting of two productive hands, with Jensen Motors at their plant in West Bromwich responsible for the sleek and sophisticated bodywork, whilst assembly of the vehicles took place at MG’s works in Abingdon, Oxfordshire.
It’s rather fitting then, that our range of Austin Healey 3000 driving experiences take place at two of our venues in Oxfordshire, namely Heyford Park, and Bicester Heritage Centre, where it has been lovingly restored to full working order.
Powering on the Healey 3000 comes from a 3 litre engine, which thrums out with an impressive 150 bhp. Once out on the open road, this small but mighty motoring icon accelerates from 0 - 60 mph in 8.2 seconds, capable of top speeds in excess of 121 mph.
