The "Big Healeys" have long been viewed as the ultimate British sportscars of the 1960's with the 3000 being the most desirable. Development of the line started with the 1952 Healey 100 launched at the London Motor Show. The evocative lines and superb handling of the Healey made it a sleek and successful rally car all around the world. With its 6-cylinder 2996cc engine giving plenty of torque, the cars are more than capable of long distance touring. Offered today is a 3000 MkII shell supplied with a rare side shift overdrive gearbox and part engine. The history of the car is unknown, but it'd make an ideal candidate to be built into an historic rally car or fast road car from the ground up.
