The Association of Healey Owners caters for Owners and Enthusiasts of cars that were built by the Donald Healey Motor company, in Warwick, UK, between 1946 and 1954. These cars are also known as Warwick Healeys or pre-BMC/pre-Austin Healeys.

Just to remind you, those cars are –

  • Westland drophead coupe.

  • Elliot 2 door saloon.

The Tour

The Silverstone model, designed to be a reasonably priced club racer, was launched in July 1949. In recognition of that car’s seventieth anniversary members of the Association have decide to undertake a motoring tour taking in some historic locations associated with Donald Healey and his cars. At the same time taking the opportunity to say hello to members along the way.

The Tour is complete now what follows is a record of what happened (see Phil’s Blog) and the cars and their owners that turned up during the Tour. Especially it is a record of the final day in Warwick, the Donald Healey Motor Company’s “home town”.

For historic purposes a link to the ‘Itinerary’ is given at the bottom of the page.
