Evaluation: Restored in the 1990s to decent standards for the time but the paint has preparation flaws and age. The upholstery, carpets and interior trim are good and the engine compartment is orderly and clean. Pedal pads are badly worn. A sound, usable and presentable car.
Bottom Line: Rare bodywork produced only in the last year of Nash-Healey production. Built before Chevrolet introduced the Corvette, the Nash-Healey was rated at only 10hp less than Corvette and came with a proper 3-speed manual transmission with overdrive. An earlier owner of this example sought to compensate for the rated performance difference with the magneto and exhaust header. The result here is a thoughtful balancing of the Le Mans Coupe’s rarity and the driver-quality condition and should leave both seller and buyer satisfied.
