Austin Healey

After the formation of BMC by Morris and Austin, the new Austin Division entered into a 20-year joint venture contract in 1952 to build a sports car with The Donald Healey Motor Co.

In the intervening years BMC merged with Jaguar to become British Motor Holdings and again, two years later, BMH merged with Leyland to become British Leyland.
Shortly thereafter Healey left the group and joined Jensen Motors. The Austin Healey cars can be divided into two rough categories – The Big Healeys and the smaller Sprites.

The Big Healeys were known as the Austin Healey 100, The Austin Healey 100-6 and the Austin Healey 3000.The Austin Healey 100 was so named as it could be driven at a speed of 100 mph (160 kph). They were produced from 1953 to 1956.

The 100 Model was replaced in 1956 by a six-cylinder model known as the 100-6 which was manufactured up until 1959.The 100-6 was in turn replaced by a 3-litre model designated the Austin Healey 3000. It was very successfully raced for many years. Production ended in 1967.Just before the launch of the Austin Healey 3000 the company started production on the Austin Healey Sprite, which was a smaller and cheaper sports car. It was sold as a Mk I and Mk II with a few variants thereof, until the 20-year Austin Division of BMC – Donald Healey Motor Co contract expired.A great many of the Austin Healeys were exported to the United States so they are considered quite rare in the rest of the world.

The Westrand Car Show is a Classic Car Show. TO QUALIFY FOR ENTRANCE TO A COMPETITIVE CLASS, VEHICLES MUST HAVE BEEN BUILT OR REGISTERED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 1999 OR EARLIER. Only the first 180 QUALIFYING vehicles will receive a commemorative medallion. Any newer vehicle is welcome to be entered as a “non-competitive vehicle” and to be placed on show just because of “the spirit of motoring” and the desire to share the joy that your wheels bring you with all of the rest of us. See the list of classes below and the entrance form. Non-Competitive vehicles may enter at the gate on the day.

Die Westrand Car Show is ‘n klassieke motorskou. OM TE KWALIFISEER VIR TOEGANG tot ‘n kompeterende klas, moet voertuie vir die eerste keer in 1999 of vroeër gebou of geregistreer word. Slegs die eerste 180 KWALIFISERENDE voertuie sal ‘n gedenkmedalje ontvang. Enige nuwer voertuig is welkom om as ‘n “nie-mededingende voertuig” ingeskryf te word, en dit net te danke aan ”die gees van motor” en die begeerte om die vreugde te deel wat u wiele vir u bring, saam met ons almal. Kyk na die lys van klasse hieronder en die ingangsvorm. Nie-mededingende voertuie mag op die dag by die hek inteken.

Die Westrand Car Show is ‘n alkoholvrye gebeurtenis, en enige persoon wat bevind dat hy in besit is of alkohol inneem, sal nie toegelaat word nie en / of sal gevra word om die perseel van die Dr. Havinga skool te verlaat.
