Throughout the world the Austin Healey 3000 is recognised as one of the most iconic of British sports cars, and 2019 will see the 60th anniversary of the launch of the model.

To acknowledge this milestone, I thought it might be interesting to look back at how this vehicle came to be produced and the changes that took place both during and since its introduction.

We all know that Donald Healey set out after WW2 to manufacture his own motor car, and in Warwick he successfully produced a variety of ‘Healey’ models based around Riley components.These were expensive high quality cars of limited production, but some were exported to the USA, where Donald was exposed to what Americans expected in the way of a sports car. In 1949 he returned to the States and met the president of Nash Motors, where an agreement was reached to manufacture the Nash Healey. The steady production of this car enabled the Donald Healey Motor Co. to generate funds and to understand the exact requirements of the American market.
