J.M.E Healeys - a family run business

J.M.E Healeys

This year’s show theme is ‘Family Ties’, inviting exhibitors, clubs and visitors to embrace their motoring family tree.

J.M.E Healeys founder, Jonathan Everard, served his apprenticeship with the Donald Healey Motor Company at Warwick in the early 60’s. Jon's father Harold worked for the Donald Healey Motor Company in Warwick and arranged for Jonathans apprenticeship with the company. Discovering his passion for Healeys prompted him to establish J.M.E Healeys in 1978 and, for nearly 40 years now, J.M.E has been dedicated to the restoration and preservation of this quintessentially British sports car. 

Jonathan developed his knowledge of the ‘Big Healeys’ over these four decades whilst restoring, maintaining and rallying these superb cars.  The company continues to serve as a family business and is now being run by Jon’s sons, Chris & Dan, who continue to offer a comprehensive restoration and competition preparation service on all Austin Healeys..

They say that 'Home is where the Heart is', and the Heart of Healeys is without doubt ,Warwick, more specifically, The Cape Works. The original home of Healeys has been here since 1945 when Donald Healey first built, at The Cape Works, the Healey Westland Roadster. 7 years later and the first prototype 100 model was born in this very workshop.  Jon Everard bought the site in 2008 and JME have been operating here ever since doing the same job in the same manner, with the same skill and same care that we believe all Healeys deserve.

You can see the J.M.E Healeys team at the show in Hall 2, Stand 475 - if you can't wait until November, visit their website here!
