Healey Silverstone auction
The Healey Silverstone rolled off the production line in 1950

It was designed to get around a tax increase that was imposed on luxury cars costing more than £1,000, but proved one of the most successful racers of its era - easily capable of speeds of over 100mph.

We have this racing jacket owned by actor and petrolhead Paul Newman for sale.
