The Austin-Healey 3000 was BMC's sporting flagship for almost a decade, and many detail changes were made along the way. The 3000 name was first used in 1959 when the C-Series engine from the 100/6 was upgraded to 2.9-litres (and a nominal for marketing 3-litres), for use in the uprated Farina bodied Westminster.
The 3000 boasted more power, an improved gearbox and disc brakes on the front.The best was saved till last though, with the Austin-Healey Mk3, launched in 1964. Although the looks remained largely the same this was the most powerful Austin-Healey with 148bhp for a maximum speed of 121mph.
