Does anyone know what happened to these two Healey 100's raced at
Sebring in 1955. They were prepared with and raced by Joe Giubardo, Fred
Wolf, Bill Wonder, and Bill Wellenberg out of Long Island, New York. The
cars were prepared for Sebring with alloy bodies with distinstive dual
opening grill. These cars finished respectively over some of the 100S's. One
or both these cars were later modified with V8 power and raced on eastern
tracks,late 50's early 60's. Has anyone have pictures of these at Sebring or
in later life? Present whereabouts?

Haven't heard of these cars previously despite being active in the Healey clubs for more than 30 yrs. Maybe they are in a barn under a pile of junk somewhere waiting to be rediscovered, but my guess is they went where most old race cars went to die. If you were really interested you could go back to the original drivers or their families and try to trace them forward.

Richard,

Thought I'd found them, not what your looking for but some interesting Healey history that I was not aware of.
