    Over the past years this car has undergone a comprehensive restoration. This work included a complete rebuild of the engine with an upgraded alloy cylinder head for much cooler operating temperature and a compression ratio of 8:1.

    It has been prepared to 100M "Le Mans" specifications featuring larger carburetors and intake manifolds, a louvered hood with bonnet strap and the cold-air box, altough it is not an original factory 100M. Front suspension, braking system, electrical system have all been rebuilt.
    The car is in a very attractive two-tone color combination with Healey Blue over white Ivory. The interior is in the original navy colour.

    The car comes with a British Heritage Certificate and is Swiss Duty paid.
