Healey SR2 1968 One of just two Sports Racer chassis built SR2 was the spare tub constructed for Healey's 1968 and 1969 assault on Le Mans. Whilst not put into use at either race it was retained by the factory until 1970 when Mr O. Swinerd purchased it along with many of the factory spare parts. Mr. Swinerd remained custodian of the car for 25 years after which SR2 was sold via the Brooks sale at Olympia in 1995 to Australia. In Australia it was built up into coupe specification using much of the original bodywork from the Le Mans car SR1 registration HNX 465D. The Le Mans car SR1 was modified in 1970 from a coupe into a spyder to comply with ASO prototype rules (which stipulated that a car of the same specification could not run in the prototype class for more than 2 years running) hence the doors, roof, and rear panelwork from the original coupe body were set aside by the factory. SR1 still exists today in spyder form. The build work on SR2 was carried out by K&A Motorsport in Adelaide who restored SR2 to a very high standard, initially fitting an Oldsmobile V8 engine and registering the car for racing use in 1997. Post restoration in Australia the car was flown over to the UK after an invitation to the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 1998. Now residing in Belgium SR2 has subsequently been fitted with the correct type 2 litre Climax FWMV V8 engine as used in SR1 at Le Mans in 1968 and 1969. SR2 is road registered in the UK under the cars original Healey registration number RUE 716G and also road registered in Belgium. This stunning and now unique car is available ready to race with current HTP papers. Having competed at Le Mans Classic in 2016 it would be an ideal entrant to the 2018 edition. SR2 is also eligible for the FIA Masters Historic Sports Cars and HSCC Guards Trophy series. Further information upon request.
