HBT7L serial number

I just purchased my first Austin Healey 1959 VIN HBT7L1008. I had it towed on a truck (hadn't been driven in years, and the clutch was stuck to the flywheel) to a friend's garage (he's rebuilt many antique cars, but never a Healey). He ordered the parts for a 100-6 for the repair and they wouldn't fit. When he gave the parts guy the VIN number he told my friend that my car is a 3000.
It has an Austin Healey 100-6 emblem on the grill, yet the information I have read says this is a Austin Healey 3000 MKI.
What gives?
