The car's first owner was Mr Frederick Gordan Sims of Nottingham and it's registration LRR 267 it still retains today. It remained with Mr Sims until around 1955 when it was sold to noted racing driver Joseph Cecil Winby who campaigned the Healey for 2 years around the UK including the Goodwood 9-hour race. Joseph Cecil Winby parted with the car and it was registered to Mr Ronald Hugh Critchlow of Coventry who later sold the car to Mr John Grosvenor Bloore of Wimbledon, London. In 2012 the car was purchased by Russell James after being found in a garage untouched for 30 years, the car was sent to Hennessy Motorsport for a nut and bolt restoration.
