Description
 
Donald Healey, a British rally racing driver and car manufacturer, founded the company bearing his name in 1945. Healey had started out racing, and then, turned to car manufacturing. He was a Technical Chief at Triumph, and also, had helped Riley build some of their proven race winning engines. At first, The Donald Healey Motor Company manufactured box-section chassis. Riley supplied the engines and the rear axles. The Riley engine Healey used was 2.443cc. Healey then decided to make a car truly made for sports car racing. In 1949, Healey introduced the Silverstone. Virtually a single seat styled grand prix car with fenders. The chassis nose was rounded off and fell steeply at the front. Interestingly, behind the vertical bar grill set the car?s two headlights. The tires wer neatly covered by cycle fenders. One of the other interesting aspects to the Silverstone was Healey?s placement of the spare tire. All together, the Healey Silverstone was a fantastic looking reall grand prix racing car. Healey had created two generations of the Silverstones. The first example was know as the D-Type. The follow-up was the E-Type. The E-Type improved upon the D-Type specifically by making the car a bit wider and the cockpit more comfortable. By making the car a little wider, the light-weight E-Type chassis experienced great success on the race track, especially in club events. Only 105 Silverstones have been made. This specific car is a so-called sanction 2. The car has just been completely restored and everything has been overhauled. Every nut and every bolt has been taken apart and every part has been rebuild. The brake, the clutch, the engine, the drive trains, the gearbox so really everything. Furthermore the car has been completely resprayed, fitted with new chrome a new interior etc etc. For more information or an appointment, please call Rutger Houtkamp+31625098150 or send an e-mail to Rutger@Houtkamp.nl.
