A rare and exquisitely restored Nash Healey, with the only known factory removable hard top. Ex “Frenchy” Harguindeguy, restored by Brian Hoyt and maintained in exceptional condition. Original alloy head, dual carbs, and overdrive. Among the finest of its kind.
Beautifully restored and detailed, this 1954 Nash-Healey Roadster is one of only 314 examples of the lovely Pininfarina-built roadster. In our 25 years of experience with these cars, we are confident that this is one of the finest examples we have ever had the pleasure to offer. It is highly correct and features desirable options including, most notably, the only factory removable hardtop known to exist. This marvelous Nash-Healey was owned for many years by the noted enthusiast Jacques Harguindeguy. “Frenchy,” as he was best known, famously won Best in Show at the 2000 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance with a spectacular Delahaye he restored. When we first encountered this car during Frenchy’s ownership, it was one of the best original, honest, unrestored Nash-Healeys we had ever seen. Following Frenchy’s passing in 2007, the Nash went to his friend Brian Hoyt. Mr. Hoyt is the proprietor of Perfect Reflections – the world-renowned, Pebble Beach-winning restoration shop and Ferrari specialist.
