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.
