Auction description:
Lot : 26
1955 AUSTIN-HEALEY 100 MODIFIED TO M SPECIFICATION

Estimate: NOT SOLD
Mileage: T.B.A.
Colour: PRIMROSE YELLOW
Trim Colour: RED
Chassis No: BN1224624
Engine No: IB224624
Registration No: RUE 617
M.O.T: JUNE 2008

Finished in Primrose Yellow with red leather upholstery, this particular 'home market' example is described by the vendor as being in "good overall" condition. Reportedly in single ownership from 1974-2001, 'RUE 617' is further understood to have been extensively restored between 1998 and 2002 with bills on file from 2001 onwards amounting to circa £7,000 (though, the total cost has been estimated at £20,000). Apparently treated to various suspension modifications by another previous keeper - who worked for Rolls-Royce - including fabricated front top links, negative camber top trunnions, Koni shock absorbers and an anti-tramp link to the rear axle, the Healey is also stated to benefit from a later 3000 MK1 four-speed manual plus overdrive gearbox, uprated brakes (3000 MK1 discs, servo, larger master cylinder etc) and 72-spoke wire wheels. Found to have been upgraded to 'M-specification' already, its 2.6 litre engine was nevertheless overhauled as part of the aforementioned refurbishment. Thus, as well as a rare Downton extractor manifold, the unit is reputedly able to boast various balanced components (crankshaft, flywheel, conrods) and a gas-flowed / big-valve cylinder head from John Chatham. While, other work saw 'RUE 617' re-trimmed, rewired and re-chromed as necessary. Perfect for summer fun, this sympathetically enhanced 100 is offered for sale with history file, green logbook and MOT certificate valid until June 2008.
