Austin Healey 3000 MKIII replica by HMC 2002 (Private plate) Green
Holmes Motor Company Ltd (trading as HMC Sports Cars) was founded in 1984 by Graham and Peter Holmes. HMC manufactured Sports Cars inspired by the Austin Healey 3000 and although the body shape was similar, the performance was that of an extremely capable modern sports car which was widely regarded as the finest in its class. Indeed, Geoffrey Healey was sufficiently impressed that he endorsed it as the Healey Mk IV, but unfortunately a 1989 dispute over the ownership of the Healey trademark meant the name was withdrawn and the car was launched simply as an HMC.
Despite this draw back, excellent reviews from Motor Sport Magazine, Performance Car, Top Gear and others meant that the HMC sold well worldwide until March 2001 when production ceased.

This stunning example is Chassis No: 166 and it is finished in the very rare Jaguar Jade Green Metallic with Antelope Leather trim and was the antepenultimate example produced by the Holmes Brothers. It was supplied new by the only UK concessionaire for these cars - All Electric Garages in Birmingham and it was first registered on 5th May 2002 with an invoiced price of £45,487. This is a very rare car as there were only two cars built in this colour scheme.
The stylish GRP body sits on a modern tubular chassis with all-round independent suspension and the car is powered by a 3.9 Litre Fuel injected Engine, 5 Speed Manual Gearbox, Disc Brakes, Walnut Dashboard with chrome toggle switches, Smith's instruments, JVC Stereo/CD player, Electric Windows, Black Mohair Soft Top, Electric Cooling Fan and 15" Chrome Wire Wheels.
It has only had one previous owner and has been in the same family ownership since 2009. It has now covered a genuine 10,200 miles from new and is exceptional throughout. The cherished numberplate R4 HMC has been on the car from new and is included with the car.
The car will come with our own customer care package including a new 12 months MOT, HPI/provenance Checks, 55-point pre-delivery inspection and 6 months mechanical breakdown Parts & Labour Warranty which can be upgraded and extended at additional cost if required.
