The beauty that is embodied by the Austin-Healy 3000 MkIII is equaled only by similarly hand-crafted boats and motorcycles of the era constructed by skilled craftsmen who put their heart and soul into everything they built. Curvaceous and sparkling wood, leather, and steel combine in a car that has a large collector following, not just due to its form but also its performance. Under the shapely hood is a 147-hp, 2,912-cc, six-cylinder overhead-valve engine with dual SU downdraft carburetors. The gruff, low-toned rasp created by the exhaust unmistakably denotes its period and homeland. Strangely, this Austin-Healey was built by neither Austin nor Healey, but by Jensen. The “big” Healey--or “Squealy” as it was often called--delivers an exhilarating open-air ride and grippy cornering. Throwing this car sideways with the tires squealing will make you want to don a driving cap with goggles and wail, ”Tallyho fine fellows!” in your best English accent.
