1964 Works Healey 3000 Lightweigh­t

“767 KNX” is an important historic racing car. It was hand built by the Healey Motor Company Competitio­n Department with a lightweigh­t chassis and an all-aluminium body. It was the only ‘Works’ entry for the 1964 “Sebring 12 Hour” driven by Paddy Hopkirk and then campaigned by Ted Worswick in the 1966 Targa Florio with Alan Minshaw and in 1968 with Richard Bond. The current owner acquired it in 2015 and Jeremy Welch thoroughly race prepared it. KNX is very fast and handles well. The high performanc­e 3 litre engine with three 45DCOE Webers and all round disc brakes give it a very nice edge. It has a fuel cell, fire system and safety cage and over four years has filled a trophy cabinet. Comes with sets of wheels, spares etc, buy your own cabinet.

1925 Bently 3-4½ Liter Speed Model

Chassis 1066 was delivered with the desirable Vanden Plas coachwork and both chassis and body numbers are stamped in the right places. It was uprated to 4½ litres in 2010 with new crank and rods giving it a good turn of speed and reliabilit­y. That Mr. Getley has been looking after it but clearly a number of previous owners have taken a dogged delight in ignoring the paintwork and it has accordingl­y developed a depth of patina you could drown in. It bears its battle-scars as badges of honour and has appeared on at least three Flying Scotsman Rallies and raced at Goodwood. Concours types, ‘try-hards; and matching number zealots need not enquire but will suit any

blaggard, bounder or cad.
