boothboy In International competition, a teams nationality is represented by the colors on their cars. Up until the Fifties, American cars had their bodies painted white and their frame rails blue. When race car bodies became a little more aerodynamic and they covered the frames something else had to be done. The answer was adding stripes to the body.

Who developed the racing stripe?

Hint : It wasn't Carroll Shelby.

boothboy It was a production vehicle but only twenty five were built. He then went back to building race cars.
The difference between the Nash Healey and the Cunningham C3 is as follows:

The Cunningham chassis and drivetrain were built in the United States. They were then shipped to Vignali in Italy to be bodied. They were shipped back to Fl. to be finished.

The Nash Healey was purely a European Built automobile with the execption that N/K supplied the engines. Healey in England built the chassis, modified the engine and then shipped them to Pininfarina in Italy. There it was completed and shipped to America. In the four years of production they only built 507. Non of them built in the USA.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Briggs_Cunningham

I visited his museum in the late sixties and saw his collection . The Bugatti Royale was there . I read a story a few years back about how he ended up with two of the six Royales. As I remember he traded some racing transmissions for one of them. I'd like to have made that trade!

the Nash Healy was older so this would not be the first,,was it production made or just a few built
