Welcome to StreetDreamsTexas as we celebrate our 20th year in the classic and muscle car business. The Austin-Healey sports cars of the 1950's and 1960's were the product of a joint venture between the Austin Division of the British Motor Corporation and the Donald Healey Motor Company, a renowned automotive engineering and design firm. This collaboration reached its zenith with the more powerful and luxurious 3000 Mk III in 1964. Equipped with power front disc brakes, roll-up windows, and a center console with walnut-veneer dash, these cars have been embraced by Americans ever since. This beautiful 1966 Colorado Red 3000 Mk III is an excellent example of the breed and comes with a certified copy of the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust factory record. This critically important document (don't buy one without it!) lists the original features of the car as it left the factory. This gem ( chassis no.H-BJ8-L/36072) was well-equipped from the factory with wire wheels, heater, adjustable steering column, laminated windscreen, overdrive, roadspeed tires, and a black tonneau cover. The current owner bought the car at the 2006 British Car Union Show from the 3rd (?) owner. All subsequent work was performed by Mark Baker at Sport and Specialty, a highly regarded expert. The interior, seats, and upholstery are original, while the Colorado Red paint was freshened 23 years ago and the Wilton wool carpets are new. All the mechanicals were rebuilt or replaced for safety and reliability (brakes, suspension, transmission, etc.). The engine was rebuilt in 2008 (excellent photos) and the tires, wheels, and hubs are all-new. This is a fresh and usable classic that is currently experiencing a steep appreciation curve. Don't wait too long! Street Dreams (830-997-1950) is a full service dealership that can assist with worldwide delivery, insurance, and financing options.
