Description

This is one of five cars prepared by the Competition Department of Healeys at Warwick for BMC Canada. The car is a time piece. All but a few parts are original. The 54 spoke wire wheels remain undamaged. All important competition parts are intact. The car recently had all old paint removed and repainted B.R.G. The engine has been rebuilt to "Special Engine" Spec 290. The trim has been cleaned up and the "special" driver's racing seat has been retrimmed in Connolly leather to original specification.

The car looks as new from the Competition Department in 1959, the chassis and other components remain original, showing the excellent condition of this car. UJB-144 has not been over-restored.

Needless to say, this is an appreciating asset. Healey Works cars have been and will continue to be, excellent investments.

History

The car and was shipped to North America with the other four cars. The car was registered in the U.K. as UJB-144 (sister car to John Chathams UJB-143 DD 300). This has been verified in England as the cars were road registered in the U.K. before being shipped to Canada so they could be driven to Silverstone for testing. This car has been in Canada since leaving the U.K. It was raced for 3-4 years in Canada and then used as a road car until 1970, then was parked until 1987. The car has had about 4 owners since leaving BMC Canada.
