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.
What a unique car and unique experience you had Rich! You are really lucky to have the time and opportunity to follow these incredible vehicles and talk to these unique individuals.
Thank you…having had the Healey for almost 30 years…I have enjoyed driving it and keeping it in origional condition
