David Traver Adolphus said in his April. 2006 Hemmings Motor News review of the 3000 Mk II: “With a profile drawn after WWII. the long hood. subtle door creases. rakish windshield and big-wheel. low-deck shape of the Austin-Healey 3000 Mk II make a promise that the car delivers. It's an intersection of design and performance. of engineering and art that have made the Austin-Healey 3000 an object of desire for almost 50 years. The car was the result of a collaborative effort. initiated by Birmingham. England's. Austin in 1952. which was looking for a design that would sell well overseas. A proposal from Healey won out. and the 3000 took its name in 1959 when it gained a 2. 9-liter straight-six. The Mk II came along in mid-1961. differentiated from earlier models with a triple-carbureted straight-six engine. Breathing through a trio of SU HS4 carburetors and featuring a 9. 0:1 compression ratio. it made 132hp at 4. 50 rpm. and 167-lbs. ft. of torque at 3. 00 rpm. …The style. power and usability of the 3000 have led it to be called a "poor man's Aston-Martin. " Pitted against smaller British favorites such as the Triumph TR3A and MGA. the Mk II excels in both appearance and performance. …With its unbeatable combination of style. power and grace. the Austin-Healey 3000 Mk II has little direct competition today. If you want top-down European motoring. in a substantial and energetic car. it's one of your finest choices. ” ***This particular car is a late-1961 model that was delivered and first titled early in 1962 as a “1962”.
