Ex-Betty Haigh Healey and Peter Noone Dino coming up for sale

| 28 Nov 2013

A rare, hand-built pre-production Austin-Healey said to be the oldest first-right-hand example in existence is coming up for auction.

The 16th of 20 pre-production Healey 100s built at the Cape Works, it was delivered new to the great Betty Haig in 1953 who competed in it over two seasons.

The Healey will be sold at Coys' True Greats sale in London on 3 December and has an estimate of £100-130,000.

The auction will also feature a 1972 Ferrari Dino 246GT once owned by Herman's Hermits singer Peter Noone.

Noone ran the car, which has only 25,000 miles from new, until 1983 and it is estimated at £130,000 to £165,000.
