The Healey Abbott was a drophead coupe built between 1950 and 1954. A total of 77 cars were made.
The cars were fitted with a 2443cc four-cylinder twin-cam Riley engine. This engine helped to make the Healeys some of the fastest cars of their day. The engine produced 106bhp and the car, helped by a four-speed gearbox, could reach 104mph. The car could go from a standstill to 60mph in 14.6 seconds.
The front suspension consisted of independent coil springs and trailing links. The rear suspension consisted of a live axle, coil springs, trailing arm and a Panhard rod. The car was front-engine and rear-wheel driven.
Healey supplied the rolling chassis and the body was made by Abbott.
The cars cost £1854 when new.
