Hopefully this might cast some light on the issue.''https://heritage.warwickshire.gov.uk/warwickshire-county-record-office/county-record-office-projects/warwick-healey-motor-company/''
Living close to Warwick I was able to have a short helpful meeting with one of the staff in the Warwickshire Records Office.
I understand the archive contains a number of boxes of company information, personal correspondence, old brochures, anecdotes etc. Other boxes contain many black and white photographs, mostly of the streamliners and competition cars in various states of build and on the track. There are also a number of rolled engineering and technical drawings, covering the dates of Healey and Austin Healey production 1946-76. (DHMC to Jensen Healey)
The collection has been valued by a reputable professional firm of valuers. The amount of the deal with the Healey Family is confidential. The cost of ÂŁ120k includes an appraisal of archival services, conservation, cataloging to enable public access to it. etc. The first priority is to acquire the collection, then achieve the other aspects depending upon the amount of grants and donations received.
Besides the automotive industry, the value to the locality also refers to the Healey Brothers as inventors and engineers, so the collection also contains other aspects of engineering and production.
As a public authority, Warwickshire has a statutory duty to make the contents available for research and personal inspection by any member of the public.
I understand, in due course, they will be keen to do this, including sharing it with other organisations for exchange of information, display etc.

More information may be available at the Warwick Classic Car Show on 9th August 2015. ''https://www.retrowarwick.co.uk/''.

I hope the National and International Healey, Austin Healey, Sprite and Midget Clubs, forums, etc. will give this appeal some favourable consideration and make this project known to their members. Of course much will be answered when a full disclosure of the contents can be made by one of the parties to the transaction.

Other than pure interest, I have no connection with Warwickshire County Council or any relevant motor clubs so do not represent or wish to misrepresent their views. E&OE.

Here you go. More info here: https://sebringsprite.com/yourcomments.html#RobEyre
