Slick panel work adorns this Healey of unknown vintage found in Illinois.

Racer? Wonder what instrumentation it has. Or Bonneville car... but as someone comments, why take all that trouble and then spoil the airflow with a clunky roll bar.

Factory car or home brew? My bet is it was built with that V8.

SBC which may be 67 Camaro.

Greetings Ivor, Thanks for sharing this. I never realized my post at ahexp.com was receiving attention. I actually purchased the car in Southern Michigan, where it has been since it was auctioned in mid-90s to previous owner. Before that, it seems to have been in Wisconsin . As far as I know it has no history in Illiois. There is a body sticker from the 44th Bonneville Nationals from '92 and also a reproduced 1960 sticker.

Aha!
Thanks for dropping in.
So, what's it like to drive? Do you use it on the road?
