I believe its to allow for a stack of spare wheels (necessary for more than one for rally use).

Correct. Boot space was also restricted by the need to fit a larger fuel tank and/or to raise it to give better ground clearance on rough surfaces. The woman standing second from the left in the main pic is Pat Moss (now Pat Moss-Carlsson) the only woman ever to win a World Championship Rally. One of the cars in the thumbnails has the registration number ARX nnn. This may be the car Pat Moss used to refer to as 'ARXhole'... :)

1960 Austin-Healey 3000 [BN7], there were 24 BMC works vehicles produced 1959-64, as this preserved example http://www.classicdriver.com/uk/magazine/3500.asp?id=12074.

1960, Pat Moss and co-driver Ann Wisdom won the Coupe des Dames in the Geneva Rally.

Same year, Tulip Rally (eighth overall), Coupe des Alpes, (second overall-class win), winning the Liège-Rome-Liège event.

I'm confused, some of the pics have different registration numbers. Last thumbnail appears to be yjb877, third thumbnail has different mark but I can't read it. Are all pics supposted to be the same car?

The last thumbnail (and possibly the previous thumbnails also) show a works 1962 Austin-Healey 3000 Mk.II "57 ARX" or "67 ARX" also seen here...
