Beschreibung

This charming little frogeye was delivered to the USA in 1959. In the 1960’s the little 948 ccm engine, providing a leisurely 48 horsepower, was replaced by an engine with 1’275 ccm and a breathtaking 65 horsepower. A nod to safety was the installation of front disc brakes in the 1970s. Later on the car was exported to England before finally finding its way into Switzerland in 2020. In March/April 2020, while still in England, the little Healy benefited from maintenance work in excess of 3000 UK£. In good condition technically with a lovely interior, a coachwork with the usual signs of use and a decent chassis, the car has a FIVA ID, British registration documents and Swiss custom duties have been paid.
