Austin Healey 3000 Rally car - Road test - HD - Great sound!
Austin Healey 3000 Rally Car In the 1960's car manufacturers proved the durability of their products, not by offering 7 year warranties, but by entering officially organised long distance, road based driving competitions against rival manufacturers. These International events called Rallies caught the imagination of the public and became annual fixtures. Lasting for several days, over thousands of kilometres, on rough roads and inhospitable environments, it was a good way to prove new cars. The British Motor Corporation (BMC) realised that the Austin Healey, in particular the 3000 model, could be the basis for a winning car. They developed it into a world beater and became very organised, employing the best UK and controversially for the time, Scandinavian Drivers. The most impressive victory, was the gruelling 1960 Liege-Rome-Liege won by an all female crew, with Pat Moss (Stirling's sister) driving and Anne Wisdom navigating. The effort was truly heroic and the girls overcame hallucinations caused by sleep deprivation, while still managing to drive flat out. At the time, the very thought of the so called gentler sex, beating all the best male drivers in the world was an unprecedented achievement and did much to uplift the image of 'women drivers' everywhere. The 2912cc works spec engine, typically runs triple 45DCOE Weber carburetors, a 300 degree cam and a full race alloy head. Outputs are typically between 200 and 300 bhp. The output varies with the compression ratio and the choice of carburettor choke diameters, dependant on whether you want low down grunt for rallying or top end for racing. This car is a rally car and will accelerate to 60 mph in about 5.5 seconds and can almost crack 140mph. The Achilles' Heel of the Big Healey, was cockpit heat (from the set back engine) and a lack of ground clearance. This car has the works 'in door' or 'sill mounted' Exhaust to get the Exhaust pipes out from under the car.. The gearbox is a straight cut 4 speed, with overdrive (a sort of ratio extender) on 3rd and 4th, giving 6 ratios. In this car, like the works machines, the overdrive switch is ideally mounted on the gear lever. Fuel consumption averages around 14mpg, dropping to around 7mpg when pressing on. A long range 18 gallon works style fuel tank is therefore a vital addition.

1st Sept 13 1957 Austin A35 first test drive
First shakedown testdrive in the Baby Austin, pleasantly suprised about the performance, although didn't use full throttle. Just a few things to sort out. The previous owner had pieces of cloth wrapped around the inner door linkages, I can see why now, they rattle against each other, Mary's reaction at the end makes it all worth it for me, she was very happy with the car.

British Motor Corporation Story
BMC was the largest British car company of its day, with (in 1952) 39 percent of British output, producing a wide range of cars under brand names including Austin, Morris, MG, Austin-Healey and Wolseley as well as commercial vehicles and agricultural tractors. The first chairman was Lord Nuffield (William Morris) but he was replaced in August 1952 by Austin's Leonard Lord who continued in that role until his 65th birthday in 1961 but handing over, in theory at least, the managing director responsibilities to his deputy George Harriman in 1956. BMC's headquarters were at the Austin plant at Longbridge, near Birmingham and Austin was the dominant partner in the group mainly because of the chairman. The use of Morris engine designs was dropped within 3 years and all new car designs were coded ADO from "Amalgamated Drawing Office". The Longbridge plant was up to date, having been thoroughly modernised in 1951, and compared very favourably with Nuffield's 16 different and often old fashioned factories scattered over the English Midlands. Austin's management systems however, especially cost control and marketing, were not as good as Nuffield's and as the market changed from a shortage of cars to competition this was to tell. The biggest-selling car, the Mini, was famously analysed by Ford Motor Company who concluded that BMC must be losing £30 on every one sold. The result was that although volumes held up well throughout the BMC era, market share fell as did profitability and hence investment in new models, triggering the 1966 merger with Jaguar Cars to form British Motor Holdings (BMH), and three years later leading to the government sponsored merger of BMH with Leyland Motor Corporation.

AUSTIN MINI COOPER S 1968 - Modest test drive - Engine sound | SCC TV
Recently we came across this beautiful Austin Mini Cooper S 1968 at The Gallery in Brummen, The Netherlands. We took the car for a little spin! We love to hear your comments on our videos or receive a like! Thanks a lot! The Mini is a small economy car made by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) and its successors from 1959 until 2000. The original is considered a British icon of the 1960s. Its space-saving front-wheel drive layout -- allowing 80 per cent of the area of the car's floorpan to be used for passengers and luggage -- influenced a generation of car makers. The vehicle is in some ways considered the British equivalent of its German contemporary the Volkswagen Beetle, which enjoyed similar popularity in North America. In 1999 the Mini was voted the second most influential car of the 20th century, behind the Ford Model T. This distinctive two-door car was designed for BMC by Sir Alec Issigonis. It was manufactured at the Longbridge and Cowley plants in England, the Victoria Park / Zetland British Motor Corporation (Australia) factory in Sydney, Australia, and later also in Spain (Authi), Belgium, Chile, Italy (Innocenti), Malta, Portugal, South Africa, Uruguay, Venezuela and Yugoslavia. The Mini Mark I had three major UK updates -- the Mark II, the Clubman and the Mark III. Within these was a series of variations, including an estate car, a pick-up truck, a van and the Mini Moke -- a jeep-like buggy. The Mini Cooper and Cooper "S" were sportier versions that were successful as rally cars, winning the Monte Carlo Rally four times from 1964 through to 1967, although in 1966 the Mini was disqualified after the finish, along with six other British entrants, which included the first four cars to finish, under a questionable ruling that the cars had used an illegal combination of headlamps and spotlights. On introduction in August 1959 the Mini was marketed under the Austin and Morris names, as the Austin Seven and Morris Mini-Minor. The Austin Seven was renamed to Austin Mini in January 1962 and Mini became a marque in its own right in 1969. In 1980 it once again became the Austin Mini and in 1988 the Rover Mini.
