Car offered at:
1953 Austin Healey 100M BN-1
Superb condition. Fully nut and bolt restored by Kurt Tanner
Engine 1B1 39318 - 4 Cylinder 2660cc
Gearbox 3-speed manual with overdrive
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.
