The Austin Healey 3000 Roadster underwent several evolutions during its production, marked by different "Mark" designations, each with unique features and improvements:
Austin Healey 3000 Roadster MK1 (1959-1961): This was the initial iteration, featuring a 2.9-liter inline-six engine. The MK1 had a three-speed gearbox with an optional overdrive, wire wheels, and a retractable soft-top roof. It had a classic roadster design and was available in both two-seater and 2+2 configurations.
Austin Healey 3000 Roadster MK2 (1961-1963): The MK2 saw upgrades, including a revised grille design and wind-up windows, replacing the side curtains used in the MK1. The engine power output was slightly increased as well.
Austin Healey 3000 Roadster MK3 (1963-1967): The MK3 brought more significant changes, including a 2.9-liter engine with improved power and torque. It also featured a revised dashboard layout, better braking systems, and an optional wood-veneer dashboard.
Austin Healey 3000 Roadster MK4 (1967-1968): The MK4 was the final iteration before production ceased. It featured numerous refinements, including larger carburetors, yielding increased power. It also had a redesigned grille and a wood-veneer dashboard as standard.
Throughout the various marks, the Austin Healey 3000 Roadster retained its classic roadster appearance, characterised by its long hood, distinctive front grille, and sleek lines. It remained a sought-after classic sports car, appreciated for its performance, styling, and engaging driving experience. The evolution across the different marks showcased continual improvements in both performance and comfort, reflecting the evolution of automotive technology and design during that era.

Should any of these issues be present, feel free to get in touch with us via phone, email, or by completing our contact form. Your communication is valuable to us.
At present, our inability to furnish pricing online stems from the dynamic nature of global economics, which has led to substantial fluctuations in the costs of parts and materials on a day-to-day basis. The intricate interplay of market forces, supply chain disruptions, and geopolitical factors has rendered pricing incredibly volatile, making it challenging to provide accurate and up-to-date figures in real-time.
As we remain committed to offering fair and transparent pricing to our customers, we find it prudent to ensure that any pricing information reflects the current market reality, hence our decision to refrain from online pricing until we can reliably provide figures that align with the ongoing fluctuations in the global economy.
