Chassis 3805, is one of the extremely rare 100S factory team racecars equipped with 45mm DCO3 carburetors, an air intake on the front bodywork, special camshafts, airbag front suspension supplement, single fold down single windscreen, oval side exhaust, stripped interior, badge delete, BRG paint and green covers on the seats. 3805 was a factory raceteam car in Europe, subsequently sent to Canada as the Austin of Canada team car and then purchased by Canadian Hugh Sutherland. From 1955 through 1961 3805 was frequently raced in Canada and the United States including Harewood, Ste Eugene, Green Acres, Watkins Glen, New Kiskeard, Mosport, and Nassau Speed Weeks. 3805 was then retired to Hugh’s garage and remained there until Greg Johnson purchased it in 2002. With it’s racing province, rare works team specification and just 3480 one-owner original race miles, 3805 is one of the most original of the rare 100S Healeys to survive.
