  Don't know if McQueen ever personally owned a Healey, but he co-drove a Sprite with John Colgate in the 1962 Sebring 12-hour.  There's a pic here: http://www.racingsportscars.com/photo/Sebring-1962-03-24-photo.html

Serial number 3508 is in Ohio needing an engine and restoration. I was
contacted by the owner a couple of weeks ago. No McQueen connection.
In the December issue of Octane Magazine, there is an article on Steve
McQueen's cars, listing a 1956 Austin Healey. The article is in
conjuction with the release of a book about his cars. The book was also
on the shelf nearby in the store. The book only lists a Sprite as owned
by McQueen. Does anyone know where McQueen's Sprite is? or is this an
error in that he only raced a Sprite owned by someone else?
