    Healey Sighting - old TV show, identify the car?

    Anyone recall Danger Man aka Secret Agent Man?
    An episode begins with Healey driving hard. The numbers 423 are on the door in large white letters (no circle). It might be a BJ7. Has door handles without locks, a hardtop and a kind of a flat windshield. The bonnet is a lighter color than the body and appears to have small louvers.
    The car appears to have been raced. Anyone identify it? Wonder where it is now?

    Episode is "Bury the Dead" season 1 vol. 4 Netflix circa 1960

    I believe it was a 100-4m possibly an "M". My memory isn't great but I didn't think it had door handles. Also, wasn't Patrick McGoohan (spelling) the lead character? I am sure someone will correct me and I'm okay with that. Now, I'm curious!

    looks like you're both right:

    http://www.imcdb.org/vehicle_17058-A...aley-3000.html
    This is a great site. I don't know how complete it is but it is certainly exiting to see our cars, mainly in film from the 50's an 60's. Press the "100/4" or "3000" tags in the links above for more AH in films.

    It's not often that I'm right! Two winners in this instance.

    The "3000" may actually be a BN6. It looks a lot like PMO 202:

    Love that slightly battered look with dullish paint on these old photos. Makes the cars look purposeful and alive. Quite a contrast to the prestine Healeys seen at car shows. The difference between a field dog and a show dog.

    By golly, I think you are right BN6 rally. The airvents in the bonnet are unique. In fact, it looks like the same car. Note driving lights, grill cutouts.
