Healey Motor Company History...

  • healey motor company book dvd history parts chassisThe Donald Healey Motor Company Ltd was a British car company. It was formed in 1945 by Donald Healey, a renowned auto engineer and successful racing driver. It was formed after Healey discussed sports car design with Achille Sampietro, a chassis specialist for high performance cars and Ben Bowden, a body engineer, when all three worked at Humber during World War II. The company was based in an old aircraft components factory off Miller Road in Warwick. Healey was joined by Roger Menadue from Armstrong Whitworth to run the experimental workshop. The cars mainly used a tuned version of the proven Riley twin cam 2.4 litre four cylinder engine in a light steel box section chassis of their own design using independent front suspension by coil springs and alloy trailing arms with Girling dampers. In her foreword to the book, Margot Healey states, "The legend of the Healey name continues to fascinate anyone interested in motorcars, competition racing, concourse or just driving for pleasure. Enjoy this book, surely one of the best photographic records of the many Healey inventions".. - read more...
