Late in 1953, Nash-Healey introduced a good looking new coupe model with the name "Le Mans." Nash-Healeys had competed in the Le Mans 24 Hours since 1950, finishing fourth of 29 cars to complete the race in 1950. In 1951, the Nash Healey finished fourth in class and sixth overall, behind a Jaguar but ahead of two Ferraris. The following year, Nash-Healey finished third overall behind two works Mercedes 300SLs, taking first-in-class from Luigi Chinetti's Ferrari and beating Briggs Cunningham's C4-R by a full ten laps. In 1951 Nash Healey also competed in the Mille Miglia, managing seventh overall, in a race won by Ferrari. For 1953, they entered the Mille Miglia again starting from 27th place, the two drivers, Leslie Johnson and Burt Hadley managed to advance to 11th by the finish. By this time, Nash Motors was busy with the merger negotiations that eventually became American Motors, and the racing program was discontinued.
Nash-Healey Roadster production ended in 1953. The final 90 cars built in 1954 were all Le Mans coupes. 507 Nash Healeys were built in total.
