The Coupe's Connection to the
HAN9-R-237 and 238 were built to race Le Mans and other international endurance races. After extensive research and some new documents found in 2014, this owner believes it is likey that this car, #238, was the Back Up car for the '68 Le Mans Race. Other researchers have concurred. Both 237 and 238 incorporated all the best technology and experience the Healey's had including a 5 speed transmission, large dry sumped oiling system, fuel injection, and a wind tunnel tested body.
This page contains photos from that race, along with exerpts from Geoff Healey's recollection of the race as he recorded it in: "More Healeys: Frog-eyes, Sprites, and Midgets".
