Description

The Healey Silverstone was the most famous of the Healey family entering many races, rallies and hill climb in its era.
With 105 units made between July 19549 and September 1950, it was made up of 51 d models and 53 E Models, the E having the slightly wider body and more legroom. The chassis was a steel 18 gauge cross brace and alloy body. Powered by a 2,433 Riley engine and four-speed Riley gearbox and rear axle.
The steering system is designed to transfer the forces from the steering gear to the wheels via a rotating plate and steering linkage, a patented Healey design that provides precise movement and transmits only minimal impact of the wheels to the steering column.
