1959 Austin Healey

1959 Austin Healey 100/6

The Healey name is know around the world for producing sports cars that like the E Type Jaguar have become an icon of the period.

Austin-Healey was a British sports car maker established in 1952 through a joint venture between the Austin division of BMC and the Donald Healey Motor Company , a renowned automotive engineering and design firm.

BMC merged with Jaguar Cars in 1966 to form British Motor Holdings (BMH). Donald Healey left BMH in 1968 when it merged into British Leyland. Healey then joined Jensen Motors, which had been making bodies for the “big Healeys” since their inception in 1952, and became their chairman in 1972. Austin-Healey cars were produced until 1972 when the 20-year agreement between Healey and Austin came to an end.

This quite stunning example of the 100/6 has be the recipient of a restoration a number of years ago. Finished in red with chrome wires this Healey is ready for summer motoring. The car is accompanied by a hard top and a set of original painted wire wheels. Fitted with factory overdrive this would have to be one of the best Healeys I have had the pleasure of driving over the years.
