1954 Austin Healey BN1 'Cape Works Special'

 

 

Chris & Dan Everard are third generation Austin Healey specialists. Their Father Jon established JME Healeys in 1978 and since then JME have led the way in Austin Healey restoration and competition preparation.

 

In 2017, JME Healeys celebrated its 40th year anniversary and for the occasion we felt it fitting to build a car to our own specification using all the experience and knowledge of cars we have built over the past 4 decades. The car we completed surpassed all expectations of both performance and styling and sold 3 weeks after completion in February 2017.

 

The car you see in front of you is now the second of its kind. The JME Cape Works Special retains the integrity and simplicity of an original Austin Healey 100/4. Reimagined and built in the original Donald Healey workshop in Warwick. Our aim was for the car to not only look fast & exciting, but it also had to be exciting to drive, mixing the power of a race car but the refinement and usability of a road car.
