The Healey 4000 was a prototype using a 4 liter Rolls Royce motor. I
think two or three were made, only two are known to exist. I think
Rolls was fairly keen on the idea but I think lackluster performance
nixed the whole idea from Donald Healey... plus the healey was
considered an old design by 1968. I think the idea that most buyers
would have put an automatic in the car (as being marketed through
Rolls showrooms) probably sent a shudder up Donald's spine!
You can see what it looks like here:
