"From Gullwing to Spyder - The Last Healey at Le Mans"
After 35 years of research, David Matthews has released the first of two volumes on the last Healey at Le Mans. Having worked in the service department of the Donald Healey Motor Company, he has been able to contact and keep in touch with many of the staff and drivers involved in this project.
Volume 1: The Participants covers the SR2/XR37 and all the staff involved in the project. This includes the four main drivers at Le Mans, the design draughtsmen, the experimental foreman, the senior mechanic and engineers, the body formers, welders and the assemblers; 17 people in total!
What a great record and presented with such detail and first hand input from those involved. - Joe Armour
Volume 2: Circuit De La Sarthe & After 1970 (to be released later this year) will cover the projects in detail and each of the three races in which they participated from 1968 to 1970, as well as the subsequent history of the car.
"Ford Fiesta By Healey HF-001 & Escort by Healey"
The second edition of David Matthew's book, Ford Fiesta by Healey covers the story of the last two Ford/Healey associated cars in conjunction with Ford USA and Ford Europe.
The book has a gallery of black & white and full-colour photos as well as copies of publications about the cars.
