LES HEALEY AU MONTE CARLO 1949-1963

 

Between 1929 and 1937, Donald Healey took part in every Monte Carlo Rally in either Triumphs or Invictas and forged a reputation as a rival to be feared by those out for victory.

Donald Healey was at the start of the 1949 event at the wheel of the first car bearing his name, Various private teams started the rally in 1949, 1950 and 1953 in identical cars, and then came the 100/6 that several intrepid drivers used in the dreadful winter of 1958, followed by the famous 3000s.
