1954 AUSTIN-HEALEY 100 MODIFIED TO M-SPEC
Finished in red over white with black leather upholstery, this particular Austin-Healey 100/4 BN1 is thought to have been originally purchased by a Mr John Bemrose of Derby. Although not listed by the BMIHT as factory built, '100 CRA' is believed to have been modified to 100M specification in period or so a letter on file from renowned Jaguar specialist Nigel Dawes would imply when it mentions "a previous owner who states that the car was raced from new as a 100M". Dated 24th April 1987, this same source records that the 100/4 was in the possession of a Mr Roy Nanson by the late 1950s / early 1960s. Apparently crashed by him and left in a "bad state", it then passed to a Mr P. Ryan who "raced the car quite extensively" during his three-year ownership from 1965 to 1968. Run thereafter by a garage proprietor from St Anne's, it was bought by a Mr Draycon in 1970 who in turn sold it to Mr Dawes. At that time it sported a louvred bonnet complete with straps, quick-release 100S catches and a carburettor cold air scoop. Other modifications included a 'Monza'-style fuel filler cap, four-speed 'taxi' gearbox (with overdrive on every gear) and a special front anti-roll bar. A right-hand drive 'home market' car with an interesting history, it is offered for sale with MOT certificate valid until 17th June 2006 and historic class (free) road tax until June 2006.
