Description

The Healey Westland was produced over the two years of 1946 to 1950 split into three versions the A chassis with 17 being made, the B chassis with 42 being made and the C chassis with only 11 being produced. The Westland takes its name from Westland Engineering Company at Hereford, England, which built the prototype. Later cars were built in chassis form at the Healey Works at Warwick, some complete and others bodied by several British coach building companies. With a steel chassis, ash frame with an aluminium hand crafted body all driven by a 2.4 litre Riley 104bhp engine, Riley four speed gearbox and rear axle. The current automotive engineer purchased this particular car in 2011 to use for European rallies and social events over the summer months. The car was sent to Classic Restorations (Healey Specialist) in Milton Keynes and was totally restored to the highest standards and prepared for the Mille Miglia in 2012. The car was successfully campaigned during the event finishing with no problems what so ever. The car also competed in the 2016 Mille Miglia and again successfully finished with out any concerns, the car has covered a total of 4,000 miles since the restoration. The car is in beautiful condition and drives so well, finished in Old English White with Red leather trim and Black Mohair hood and tonneau cover. If you ever consider entering a world rally and do not want to be left behind, this is the vehicle you should be seriously considering; it’s a front-runner.
