In 1946 D. Healey settled down in Warwick and started production of sport cars. At the motor show in London he presented his roadster “Healey-100” with a 4-cylinders engine “Austin A-90”, useful capacity 2660 cm3. For the firm “Austin” which had left motor sport long ago it was a chance to announce the beginning of high-speed-cars manufacture again. Sir Leonard Lord, president of the concern “British Motor Cooperation”, made a contract with Healey about production at “Austin” in Longbridge series of sports cars under the trade mark “Austin Healey” right there at the motor show. And so the firstling “Healey-100” came to the assembly line under the name “Austin Healey-100” and was produced in different modification till 1967.
