This is the Tickford bodied Nash-Healey


"The first and most interesting is a one-off Nash-Healey prototype dubbed the X-7. The British coachbuilder Tickford produced the body of this car and, according to one source, the company said it was the rarest car it had ever built. Looking at it from directly in front, its Nash-Healey heritage is obvious; the grille and front look like a 1951 N-H, although certain details are different. The windshield frame, for example, is much better integrated into the car's overall lines. But a side view of the Tickford car shows a much different automobile from the production model. The body lines are heavier in appearance, with big fenders that flow downward into larger doors with roll-up windows--unlike the production models, which had side curtains. The rear wheels have fender skirts, and the rear body is larger, making it look like a grand tourer rather than all-out sports car. Luckily, we have several views of the car so we can see it top up, top down, and even get a complete view of the rear body. It's a beauty.

Surprisingly,it's currently in the hands of Nash-Healey expert Leonard McGrady who, by the way, owns more than 80 Nash-Healeys!"

Nash-Healy breeds with Jaguar XK120 DHC, and this is what you get? Nice car though..
