One of the original series issued in 1956, the Austin Healey had a long life. In fact it did not disappear from catalogues until 1965 and this has resulted in it getting shaped wheels at some point in the early 1960s. I don't know when and these are not uncommon but certainly fewer have shaped wheels than the original smooth wheels.

I also wonder whether we might not encounter a free wheel version one day!

This came in red and cream and a very rare blue. This example is very nice. It has one or two signs of wear and has had a replacement screen. the steering wheel is original.
