Unique 1965 Healey Race Car to be Auctioned by COYS
Also driven at the 1966 Sebring race and later in the 1970s at the Daytona 24 Hours, the Healey that still wears its “day glo” orange paint and the Le Mans #49 number could sell for a price between £180,000 (€210,000 / $276,500) and £220,000 (€258,100 / $338,000)
“This is a fantastic opportunity for someone to acquire a race car with a great history, and one that should prove a great investment for the future,“ said Chris Routledge, Managing Director at COYS.
Fielded by the Donald Healey Motor Company at the 1966 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Healey retired after 237 laps and was eventually ranked 18th. Powered by a BMC 1.3-liter inline-four engine, the British race car was also driven at the Le Mans Classic and the Goodwood Revival in 2010.
