The 3000 Mk III was launched in October 1963 and remained in production until the end of 1967 when production of Austin-Healeys ceased. Classified as the BJ8, the new model was the most powerful and luxurious of the big Healeys, with a walnut-veneered dash, wind-up windows, and a 150bhp engine, giving a top speed of 121mph. Improvements to the engine included a new camshaft, valve springs, and twin SU 2" HD8 carburettors, together with a new design of exhaust system. Servo-assisted brakes were now fitted as standard. The original phase I BJ8 model featured much slimmer bodywork with smaller, single front sidelights and smaller rear lights versus the larger items on the later Phase II cars, but pioneered the same engine, wind-up windows, easy-up pram-style hood and a walnut dash. Out of a total of 17,712 Mk IIIs (phase I and II) just 1,302 phase I cars were produced with over 90% due for export.
