It's a 52 Cunningham C3. Chassis and drive train made in Fl. and fitted with a Vignali body. Briggs Cunningham was a American playboy/Race driver during the Forties-Seventies. Here's a link for some more info.
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-Healey is a two-seat sports car that was produced for the American market between 1951 and 1954. Marketed by Nash-Kelvinator Corporation with the Nash Ambassador drivetrain and a European chassis and body, it served as a halo vehicle, or flagship car, for the automaker to promote the sales of the other Nash models. It was "America's first post

496CHEVY3100 This is the Nash Healy I think of when I hear the name,,

I thought it was American made they had one on Fast and loud and said it was American made before the Corvette ,,but I don't believe a lot of what he says

it possibly was like the Cobra,,started life as a Bristol AC,shipped to USA installed Ford motor and called an American sports car ..

this si 53-55 1st one is a 1950

boothboy That's a 1950-51 Nash-Healey, but it's a British import. It was design with collaboration between Donald Healey and Nash-Kelvinator.
