Nice Nasty Boy for Sale

I'm not associated with the seller but if after reading HealeyRick's great Nasty Boy article you feel the need for one of these beasts, here's a really nice one with an interesting history. It's a 1956 like mine so all the nice old big Healey bits with attitude. While I like the more stock look, I did giggle when I looked at the difference between the front wheels and back... classy up front... race car in back.

The builder probably wore a mullet.

Thanks for the compliment, Janelle. I wish there were some pictures of how it ran at Sebring as I like these early conversions. The dash plaque is for a participant in the 1961 SCCA Divisional races at Sebring, not the Sebring 12 hr international race. Here's Bud Dana at the Nassau Speed Weeks in 1960 with his Chevy-Healey:
