This one is a mystery for me : the photograph of this curious Healey 2,5 Litre has been published in the "1948 Salon" issue of the french magazine "Science & Vie" under the section "british coachbuilding", but the name is written Van den Plas, like the belgian coachbuilder. Moreover, this car has quite a futuristic line. But at the end of the forties, the lines of the british Vanden Plas were rather conservative, whereas the belgian Van den Plas made some bold cars at the same time (see Jaguar in the Van den Plas section).

We can be shure, the car is from VdP/Belgium. Only from this European section are Healey-works noticed ...,

... with greetings, Frank ;)

Thank you very much for your quick answer.
So, I have to move the photograph to the belgian Van den Plas, and create a Healey topic !
