The Original Austin Healey Parts Specialist

Special VIP Visit

Posted: Thursday, 14 September 2023 @ 08:19

Last month we were very proud to invite former Managing Director, Bob Hill and  his fellow Director, Gordon Barton to visit our revamped showroom which we completed during lockdown. Bob and Gordon ran the company from 1983 To 2013 taking the business to new heights with printed catalogues, websites and developing our in-house manufacturing units, A H Panels and Trim Shop.

We were also blessed that our founder, Fred Draper’s daughter, Carol visited us to admire her father’s legacy. Carol kindly loaned us Fred’s business card, tie pin and a ‘Healeys and Austin-Healeys’ book signed personally by Donald Healey himself. Carol reminisced about when her father set up the business and how she would have parts such as springs, stored under her bed. She also enjoyed looking through the Cardex system (originally used at the D.H.M.C) which she used to assist keeping up to date when she worked for her father on Saturdays.

We are very proud of our past and family heritage and are looking forward to celebrating our 50th year in 2022. Since our doors opened, our focus has always been on the enjoyment and pride of Austin Healey motoring. We shall continue to deliver the best possible service to our customers and promote the classic car industry for generations to come.
