Car was at auction 11/13
Lot number 66
Hammer value £20,200
Description Austin-Healey 100/4 BN1
Registration UUR 36
Engine size 2,660 cc
Chassis No. BN1-223112
Engine No. 1B223112M
First registered in Hertfordshire in July 1955, this particular Healey has been in the current ownership since 1980. Although it may look a little shabby it was in regular use by the owner and his daughter right up until 1996 when it was driven into storage.
Since then it has barely turned a wheel but just before our visit to take these photos the vendor put some fresh fuel in, connected up a battery and reports that it started easily and ran well with good oil pressure, although he does advise that there is no coolant in the engine because the water pump gasket has perished during storage and will need to be replaced before the engine is run for any length of time.
The front left wing has also recently been bent out of shape when two 'helpers' attempted to move the car by lifting on the wing with the result that it has bent upwards and caused a nasty panel gap between itself and the passenger door. However, a judicious bit of pressure may quite easily push it back into place.
Altogether a very straightforward restoration project that could be returned to the road with very little effort and gradually improved over time as desired.

I owned this car between about 1972- 1977. It was in a poor state and off the road when acquired and I restored it myself to a reasonable condition. Fond memories. I have a few photos.would love to hear from the current owner. Jonathan.
