Cross-pollination between the British Motor Corporation’s Austin division in Birmingham and the Donald Healey Motor Company of nearby Warwick begat some fabulous Grand Touring cars. Proven in International racing and rallying, works Austin-Healeys are the holy grail. UJB 140 is the first of four built at BMC’s Abingdon competition department for the 1960 Sebring 12 Hours race in Florida, used for circuit acclimatisation.
Back in England, Jack Sears drove it at Silverstone to develop Girling’s three-pot disc brakes. Sold in August 1960 by New York Austin-Healey importer Ambro Automotive Company to SCCA member Richard Ecklund, it was raced sparingly at future US Grand Prix venue Watkins Glen and Harewood Acres in Canada. Ecklund sold it to his occasional co-driver Bob Deuell in ’86 with 20,000 recorded miles! In 2009, Peter Jaye began a superb restoration, returning it to Sebring specification.

Eminently eligible for every prestigious Pre-1963 and Pre-’66 GT racing event on the planet, including the GT & Sports Car Cup, Equipe, Goodwood Revival and Le Mans Classic.
