Description

As a result of a chance meeting between Donald Healey and George Mason CEO of the Nash Corporation, a mating of the Nash 6 cylinder engine and the Healey chassis resulted in the Nash Healey, 104 Panel Craft Nash Healey's were built, and Donald entered one in the Mille Miglia of 1951. This vehicle was found having been of the road in Florida some 30 years. The last car of the first batch built at the end of 1950. Shipped back to the UK in 2015, the car has completed a full nut and bolt restoration it was fitted the Le Mans Tri-carb cylinder head time for the 2016 Mille Miglia, completed and finished. The car also entered and finished the 2017 Mille Miglia, now has full entry for 2018 Mille Miglia.
