A fleet of some of the world’s most famous classic cars will be on show to the public at Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm next week (May 4th) as part of the St Mawes Classic Car Festival.

A 1957 Ferrari 250TR, 1965 & 1966 Jaguar E Type, Aston Martin DB5 and a 1953 Frazer Nash Targa Florio will make up just some of the classic vehicles on display for the public to view at the cyder farm near Truro.

Before heading to Healeys, the cars will be taking part in time trial tests organised by Truro Motor Club, at Perranporth Airfield, as part of the festival.

The Cyder Farm, which has a permanent collection of Healey cars in its visitor centre, including the Healey Silverstone, Austin Healey 3000 and the Austin Healey Sprite, all invented by the great Donald Healey, will also be amongst the line-up.

Joe Healey, Commercial Director at Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm, said: “Cars are naturally a big part of our family history, so we’re really looking forward to welcoming some extremely rare classics to the Farm. It’s a great opportunity for visitors to come along and see these amazing vehicles up close and talk to the owners. The collection of over twenty cars will gather in the car park, and the public are welcome to join us.

“We regularly host car meets at the Farm, including the MG Club, so it’s great to have the St Mawes Classic Car Festival as a new addition to our calendar of events.”

The cars will be on display from 2pm until late in the afternoon on Wednesday 4th May at Healeys Cyder Farm. The Farm will be open as normal on the day, and visitors are welcome to come and view the collection of vehicles, as well as enjoying a tour and visit the restaurant.
