The ‘Big Healeys’ took the motoring world by storm in the 1950s and 60s: these powerful and fascinating cars were not only immensely popular as production cars, but also enjoyed considerable success in rallying and racing. They remain one of the best-loved classic sports cars today.

Topics covered include: complete history of the company and development of 100 & 3000 models; full specification tables and finally, detailed accounts of the cars’ competition fortunes.
