I can't say definitively, but a) I've never seen a Healey not fitted
with an ash tray and b) ash trays were installed on all cars, at least
for the American market, until a decade or so ago; carpet only covering
the hole would have been awkward. I usually keep a few quarters for
meter in mine, and sometimes a spare fuse or two.
'Cigar lighters' were, I believe, an option; the replacement harness for
my BJ8 I bought came with a wire lead (brown) for a cigar lighter which,
unfortunately I didn't properly insulate and it let some smoke out.
