Description:

1958 Austin Healey 3000

For sale today is a classic Austin Healey 3000 custom build from Classic Roadster Ltd from North Dakota.
Car is equipped with a high $$$ Ford 331 Stroker motor and a C4 Automatic Floor shift transmission. We have most all of the original paperwork from this company which shows the original details from its build. Back in its hey day it was quite a desirable build. Custom built from the factory this car retailed for over $28,000. Car DOES have its windshield, window frame, and grill (despite not being in the pictures). Wire wheel hubcaps and much more .
I included a link of an article from this North Dakota manufacturing company from 1988. Look at the write up. https://www.apnews.com/6c95a4cbc46125f4351acebb39e56c6b. Some of these cars were called the "Cobra Killers" for their desire to compete with Shelby Cobra racecars (of the 60's). :)

Of couse, all replica kit company's eventually had to close but this company had a different marketing philosophy. It was built to actually perform. I included a picture (last picture) of one of their cars equipped with a 429 Cobrajet HP engine in one of these Healeys...pretty cool.
PLEASE NOTE.....We are considering putting this 331 Stroker into our Mustang Fastback . Engine is for sale separately for $3995 obo, and if it does sell we have a strong running standard 289 we can install at a slightly reduced price. Car still has some parts to complete. But it starts and runs. Need to complete some brake work to drive comfortably..
Can help with shipping anywhere in the US or overseas for lowest price possible. Titled as a 1958 Austin Healey on its title from previous owner. Inspections are welcome.
