The Le Mans Coupe was launched in 1953 to celebrate Nash Healey's exploits during the 1951 and 1952 24 Hours of Le Mans, in the GT category. Just under 200 units were said to have been made until the end of production in 1954.
Chassis 3009 was sold new to the Nash dealer in West Pa., USA. The car was retained in the same family for 50 years, and it was restored by the son of the first owner before selling it to a Californian collector in 2003. The following year, the car was bought by a German enthusiast who decided to take over the restoration in full; the work went on from 2004 to 2010, for an amount of over €120, 000. The car is fitted with the rare, spoked rims which only a few had them, as were the specific Pinin Farina door handles, which were reserved for just 19 units. It was a Belgian collector who then acquired the car in 2012, before handing it over to LMB Racing to keep the car running perfectly: invoices show a new engine overhaul. The car was then entered in the Concours d'Elegance at Schloss Dyck in 2013. We really enjoyed getting behind the wheel of this superb coupé. It runs excellently well, the mechanicals are well tuned and torquey, the manual gearbox pleasant to use, while the clutch is progressive and the braking, balanced. The excellent restoration that the car has received showcases this rare and interesting automobile.
