Hopkirk Healey to go under the hammer

A 1965 Healey Le Mans prototype which was raced by Paddy Hopkirk and Andrew Hedges at Le Mans 1966 is to be sold by COYS at their Ascot Auction on April 27th and could sell for between £180,000 and £220,000.

Built by Donald Healey in 1965 and registered in 1966 the car also raced at Sebring that year driven by Paul Hawkins and Timo Makinen in day glo orange, the same colour it is in today.

The car was later exported to the United States and in 1970 it participated in the Daytona 24 hour race driven by “Bill” Harris.

 The car raced at the Le Mans classic and Goodwood revival in 2010.  It has its original Le Mans 4 speed and overdrive box, is FIA compliant with a roll cage and big tank fuel cell and has new FIA race seats and belts fitted.

“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.
