Detailed Description

This is a totally original Healey Westland which was stored in 1960.  This car was featured in the first ever race at Castle Coombe.

Has been issued a FIVA identity card in 2012. V5C registration.

Equipped with a 2,400 cc 4-cylinder engine producing 104 horsepower, and a 4-speed manual transmission.

The "Westland" name is derived from the Westland Engineering Company in Hereford, England, which constructed the prototype in November 1945. Later, these cars were built in chassis form at the Healey Works in Warwick, with some being fully assembled and others receiving bodies from various British coachbuilding firms.

This model (B) boasts a sturdy steel chassis, an ash frame, and an aluminum handcrafted body, all powered by a 2.4-liter Riley engine producing 104 bhp. It's coupled with a Riley four-speed gearbox and a rear axle.

Mille Miglia Eligibility: The car was restored to impeccable standards by Classic Restorations (Healey Specialist) in Milton Keynes, with the restoration commencing in 2009 and completed for the Mille Miglia in 2012. The car performed admirably during the event, completing it without any issues. Additionally, the car participated in the 2016 Mille Miglia and once again finished the event successfully, covering a total of 4,300 miles since its restoration.

This Healey Westland Roadster is not just a beautiful classic but also a testament to British craftsmanship and engineering excellence.
