Austin-Healey 3000
The first six cylinder Austin-Healey was the 100/6 launched in BN4 body in 1956 and BN6 in 1958, which used a 2639cc straight six engine from the Austin A105 Westminster. This C-series engine was developed further into a 2912cc unit for the Farina Austin Westminsters in 1959 and given to the Austin-Healey 3-litre in the same year. There were two bodies, the BT7 2+2 and the BN7 2-seater. Three SU carburettors were given to the engine for the 3-litre MkII in 1961, but Austin-Healey reverted back to 2 carbs for the MkIIa in 1962. The 2-seater body was phased out and replaced by the BJ7 2+2 body now with larger windscreen and wind-up windows. From 1963 until 1967 the BJ8 with 150bhp engine was produced.
