Welcome to the Healey Drivers' Club Website

The Healey Drivers Club is the world's oldest club catering for the Healey enthusiast. Originally founded in 1955, the Club meet at regular intervals in Devon and Cornwall and boasts a regular and informative magazine  Headlines From Healey.

The Club is proud of many long standing associations with other clubs around the world, who regularly contribute to our own magazine. Furthermore, membership with the Healey Drivers Club will give you benefits such as a discount with parts supplier Ahead 4 Healeys.

Our membership includes enthusiasts not only from the UK and Europe, but from as far afield as the USA and Australia.

As a club, we welcome not just owners of all marques of Healey (e.g Warwick built Healeys, Austin-Healey Sprites, Big Healeys and Jensen-Healeys), but also enthusiasts who may have owned or enjoyed a Healey in the past, or are considering purchasing one today.

Our aim is to offer you a point of reference for all things Healey. You are welcome to use our site; if you have anything you want to tell us, or information you think would be useful to members and other Healey owners then please contact the webmaster at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We look forward to you joining our club, more importantly we look forward to a long and happy association.


You will all be aware that the global pandemic has effectively brought an end to all club meetings and activity until further notice.

We have regrettably had to cancel our International Healey Weekend scheduled for 7th May in Dawlish so this has been re-arranged for Thursday 6th to Sunday 9th May 2021. See panel to the right of this page

Many other classic car events have also either being cancelled or postponed until later in the year, and whilst we’ll try to keep the information on the website as up to date as possible we still recommend that you check with organisers before travelling to any events that may still appear be running after the 'lockdown' is lifted.

 It’s going to be a difficult few months but we hope you all stay safe, fit and well.

With best wishes to all club members from the Committee.


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.
