Found derelict 1n 1966 in a street in Bognor Regis,Sussex and restored by Chris Pilbeam.
Sold at auction in 1988

2011 Warren Kennedy found a HS-Frame which is stamped with D21. He built a new Healey Silverstone with Tickford parts on the old frame stamped D21.

“The original D21 suffered a crash in the 1950s and, it is thought, a new chassis was ordered, stamped D21, from the factory. In the end it wasn’t used however and the chassis put aside. It is this chassis that has now been pressed back into service and acknowledged by all parties concerned as an honest Silverstone and without issue.” (Warren Kennedy)

So, in fact, the D21 with reg.No. KYL 690 is the original car with the original period competition history, and we have a second car with D21 based on a whole frame from 1951.
