The Healey Westland

The first Healey Westland was introduced in 1946, and over the subsequent years, three different versions of the chassis were produced: 17 A chassis, 42 B chassis, and only 11 C chassis. This specific car belongs to the B-Type chassis category.The Westland is named after the Westland Engineering Company in Hereford, England, which constructed the prototype in November 1945. Later models were assembled in chassis form at the Healey Works in Warwick, with some being fully completed and others receiving bodywork from various British coachbuilding companies.

Restored and MM Eligible

Classic Restorations, a Healey specialist located in Milton Keynes, undertook the car's restoration, which commenced in 2009. It was meticulously prepared for the Mille Miglia in 2012 and performed admirably throughout the event, encountering no issues. The car also participated in the 2016 Mille Miglia, once again completing the race successfully without any concerns. Since the restoration, the car has covered a total of 4,300 miles.
