Healey Repco XR37

What a car! New LeMans rules? No problem! Let’s just chop the top off last year’s car, stretch the chassis by 5″ then stuff a big bad Repco V8 in it. Yeah! That’s the ticket. When faced with the new Sports Prototype rules for 1970 that’s, more or less, exactly what Donald Healey did.

After drawing all three LeMans cars—SR47, SR 37, and XR 37—what astounds me most is the success (however limited) these cars had considering their development budget was a pittance compared to the more established endurance teams. Truly a “men in sheds” effort. While none of the three cars met with any race success, the XR37 ran as high as 10th and was lying in 14th at 23 hours and 46 minutes when an electrical fault caused the car to retire.
