Preservation Class 1949 Healey Silverstone

During the 2017 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance I ran into this exceptional 1949 Healey Silverstone which was in the post-war preservation class.

Looking at this car, this certainly has to be one of the most original Healeys in the world; even retaining its original radiator hoses that look like they could blow at any time.

As mentioned in the Video this is car number 3 of about 100 made. This is Donald Healey’s first real production sports car. About 100 silverstones were made with the Riley-engined D-type 2.4-liter engine.

Healey BN2 Showcar to be sold at Festival of Speed

This 1955 Austin-Healey 100 BN2 was first displayed at the 1955 Earls Court Motor Show in the colors of Florida Green over Old English White, with Florida Green interior trim and upholstery.

Recently it has been restored and Bonhams have the distinction of offering for sale at their Goodwood Festival of Speed sale on June 30th.

Press Release:

“Despite its immaculate outward appearance, this 1955 Austin-Healey 100 BN2 would not have always appeared so at ease on the concours lawn. Originally created as one of the show cars for the 1955 Earls Court Motor Show – in customer-attracting Florida Green over Old English White, with Florida Green interior trim and upholstery – TAC 787 was re-discovered in a pretty sorry state.

The owner, Steve Norton of Austin-Healey specialists Cape International, has devoted years to amassing information, researching provenance and restoring the car which will be offered at Bonhams Festival of Speed sale at Goodwood on 30 June.

For the first decade of its life, the car’s travels and service history were meticulously documented, and receipts detailing every oil change, engine overhaul and clutch assembly accompany the lot. Images of ‘TAC 787’ at Lake Garda in Italy illustrate that the car enjoyed Continental tours during the early 1960s before being sold, via the classifieds in The Times newspaper, to a gentleman in Woking.
