Healey Climax SR #47

In the late 60s Donald Healey wanted to return to LeMans and reclaim some of the glory of his early successes. To that end, he wanted to develop a car that could compete at the highest level and, in every respect, be an entirely British effort.

Developed in strict secrecy, the resulting Healey Climax SR was powered by a Coventry Climax V8 coupled to Hewland D300 gearbox. The construction was very much in keeping with other endurance race cars of the day—mid engined configuration, semi-monocoque construction, enclosed aluminum bodywork, four-wheel disc brakes, independent front and rear suspensions and the like. Tests on the newly completed car were very promising and there was a good deal of enthusiasm for the attempt.

Sadly, success at LeMans was not in the cards in 1968 for the Healey Climax as it retired in the 4th hour with gearbox and clutch problems. Not to be dissuaded, Donald Healey returned to LeMans in 1969 with a slightly uprated version of the SR. But that’s another story…

The Healey Climax SR #47 is available printed on either acid-free, archival quality paper or on brushed aluminum DIBond material (available only in 2)’ x 47″ size). The brushed aluminum product comes complete with hanging cleat, all necessary hardware and requires no framing.
