As part of his publicity campaign to promote the Austin-Healey 100/4, Donald Healey entered a team of four pre-production cars for the 1953 Le Mans 24-hour race. Running with standard windscreens, interiors and even bumpers, two of this mildly tweaked quartet survived to finish 12th and 14th overall (an amazing result for such comparatively inexpensive cars in near showroom condition). Amongst numerous other racing and rallying victories, Austin-Healey enjoyed further success at the Sebring International Raceway in the USA. Offering classic 1960's looks but with the confidence and reliability that current technology brings, the Sebring TMX offers performance and excitement aplenty at a fraction of the cost of an original Big Healey. This example is fitted with a 4.4-litre V8 engine matched to manual transmission. 'MXI 439' is offered with V5C, history file and build manual and comes with an MOT until September 2019.
