Austin Healey - The Story of DD 300 Book Reviews and Testimonials

Classic Motor Monthly, February 1, 2018

'Porter Press International, the publisher of some of the world's finest motoring books including the award-winning "Great Cars" series, has launched a new entry-level book format under the name of Porter Profiles.

'This more accessible series starts by taking readers back to the swinging sixties and the adventures of one of the most successful Big Healeys of all time - a charming story of a lost era told in 96 pages featuring insightful narrative, evocative archive photos, and new studio shots, all fro a cover price of just £20.

'The car examined in this book was one of the earliest produced and, by taking to the tracks, played a part in building the model's trans-Atlantic reputation for no-nonsense performance.

'The author: Simon Ham is a consultant for RM Sotheby's, the world's largest auction house for investment-quality automobiles. He races historic cars internationally, including the Lister-Jaguar that his father bought in 1969 for £1250, and is Editor of the Aston Martin Owners Club's monthly magazine. This is Simon's first book.'
