1963 Austin-Healey 3000 MkII Sebring: Bred To Race. Tony Parkinson has been an Austin-Healey enthusiast for a long time. First contact came in the form of a 100S he spotted as a 10-year-old, and as proof of that moment’s staying power, 43 years later Tony would get the keys to the same car. In addition to fulfilling his childhood street car dream, he also owns the race car featured in today’s film, an ex-works Austin-Healey 3000 MkII Sebring.
One of just three built to contend the 12 Hours of Sebring in 1963, these cars were taken off the assembly line and put through a comprehensive upgrade regiment of non-homologated parts that saw the cars racing in the prototype class. We catch up with Tony and this remarkable piece of Healey history to enjoy the rare treat of taking a proper factory-built race car onto the track.
