Technically no. The Nash-Healey was sold exclusively in the U.S. Between 1952 and 1954 completed chassis were shipped from Great Britain to Italy, where they were bodied by Farina and shipped directly to the U.S.

However for it's first year in production it was first built and bodied in 1951 in the U.K. The car was exclusively for the U.S. even then, but there was an Alvis powered version that was built for the U.K. beginning in October of 1951. Between 1951 and 1954 (some say 1952 or 1953, however <span style="font-style: italic">Cars in the U.K. Vol. 1</span> by Graham Robson (1996)--which is the best reference on car registrations--says 1954) there were a total of 25 (some say 28, most --incl. Robson--say 25) RHD Healy Sports Converitbles (a.k.a 3-Liters) built, all using the 1951 Nash-Healey body.
