The Austin Healey offered here has been subject to a complete body-off, nut and bolt restoration, using as many correct date-coded parts as possible. Completed to the factory specifications, it retains its original panels and floors according to the vendor. Finished in a rare, but correct, color combination of spruce green (also known as British Racing Green) and green trim, the Healey retains its original 53 year-old top which is remarkably well-preserved and in show condition. The paint, body, trim and bright work are completed to the highest standards, demonstrated by its winning numerous awards including Best in Class at the 2005 Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance, the Winter Park Concours and an AACA Senior First Place award. Similarly, the engine bay is spotless and has been completely rebuilt with NOS parts. The restoration was documented by photographs which are included in the sale. Likewise the installed badge bar with lights, original tool kit and glove box owners manual are in excellent condition and included, as well as a new heritage certificate.
Donald Healey considered the 100-4 to be the best looking Healey in large part because of its mixture of a long bonnet and muscular haunches. With the clever adjustment for the angle of the windscreen, the 100-4 is the epitome of a classic sports car. This Austin Healey 100-4 is one of the finest examples and Christie's recommends a close inspection of this stunning car.
