HMC MK1V 3.9 SE 1997 (P) Ice Blue/Old English White
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it as the Healey Mk IV, but unfortunately a 1989 dispute over the ownership of the Healey trademark meant the name was withdrawn and the car was launched simply as an HMC.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.
Watch this road test video from November 2015:
All HMC's had the same stylish GRP body sitting on a modern tubular chassis with all-round independent suspension and were powered by a Rover 3.9 Litre V8 Fuel injected Engine with a 5 Speed Manual Gearbox, Electric Cooling Fan, Disc Brakes and 15" Chrome Wire Wheels.
Supplied new by 'All Electric Garages' in Birmingham and first registered on 10th March 1997 this example is finished in arguably the most desirable colour scheme of Ice Blue over White with a Tan Leather interior piped in Blue, Blue Carpets, Blue Mohair Soft top with matching Hood Cover, Walnut Dashboard with chrome toggle switches and matching Mota-Lita Steering Wheel, Smith's instruments, Electric Windows, Clarion Stereo/CD Player with wood effect face and remote control and sitting on 15" Chrome Wire Wheels with Yokohama tyres.
Sold by us to the current owners in July 2012, this car has only covered 24,300 miles from new with a full service history and it has only had 2 former keepers since new in 1997.
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.
Photo's shown are of the car in 2012 when we sold it, but new ones will be uploaded upon completion of our showroom preparation and the asking price will also be confirmed shortly.
