Happy Birthday to the one and only Donald Healey who would be 120 today!

Born in Perranporth in 1898, Donald Healey became a successful rally driver after winning the 1931 Monte Carlo Rally.

The Austin-Healey name was formed in 1952 in a joint venture between the Austin division of the British Motor Corporation and the Donald Healey Motor Company after Donald Healey designed and built a singled "Healey 100" for the 1952 London Motor Show.

It was under this partnership that the iconic Austin-Healey 100 or BN1 was manufactured, followed by the BN2, 100/S, BN4 (the first series with a six-cylinder engine), BN7, BT7, BJ7 and BJ8 models.
