During the 30s, Donald Healey was in cooperation with the old Triumph Company and kept her active in motor racing.

Other Healey models followed with engines from Alvis, American-Nash and lastly four-cylinder Austin A 90C. This specific car is the last of the series Mk III BJ8 equipped with the more powerful six –cylinder 150bhp engine of 3.0 liter.
