£29.99 Size Guide
Be the proud owner of a flattering, shapely feminine fit hooded jacket featuring an Austin Healey 3000 no less.
Doubtless you wouldn’t turn your nose up at the real thing! But that could set you back around £50,000+… This Fruit of the Loom product is flattering and a shapely feminine fit. We've also got mens and kids T-Shirts with the same design that commemorates the launch style promotion of '59.
The plain facts:
- The launch model had two rear seats (but very small) – hence the 2+2.
- It was manufactured by BMC (the British Motor Corporation) between 1959 and 1967.
- Big Healey, big engine – 6 cylinder 2,912cc.
- The Austin Healey 3000 replaced the Austin Healey 100-100-6 series.
- A total of just under 43,000 Mk1, Mk2 and Mk3 Austin Healey 3000 Sports Convertibles rolled off the line at BMC’s Abingdon works before production ceased in 1967.
And some rather more colourful, esoteric little snippets for the real enthusiast …
- The Austin-Healey ‘brand’ was born of a 20-year (1952-1972) agreement between BMC’s Leonard Lord and one Donald Healey. At the time BMC needed Donald Healey’s sports car design and engineering experience to exploit valuable export opportunities.
- The body panels for the Healey 3000 were actually manufactured at the rival Jensen Motor works in nearby West Bromwich.
- Donald Healey eventually left BMC (then British Leyland) in 1968 and later joined Jensen to became their chairman in 1972.
- Featuring image in the style of original 1959 launch material for Mk1 2+2 model
