Car to be at auction 5/16
Auction 2016 Legende et Passion
Lot Number 111
Reg. Number Dutch Registered
Chassis Number BN1L / 150648
Make Austin Healey
One of 640 overall 100M's ever produced, the example on offer with us here today is one of only a handful of examples delivered new to Holland. In 1956 the car was sent back to the Healey Factory in the UK to be fitted with an original Le Mans M-Kit. #BN1L/150648 is a well-known car that is registered in the Austin Healey 100M Le Mans registry and is provided with a certificate of Membership.
This Austin Healey was recently subject to a restoration after having been found in a garage where it had been stored and forgotten for over forty years! The car was found in impressive condition and still equipped with its original Le Mans Headlamps, Steering Wheel and 100M Badge. Also found in a box nearby were the cars original Derrington steering wheel, cold air box, Lucas Dipping mirror and bonnet.
Now finished in the wonderful and original Austin Healey 100S colours of Obelia Blue over Ivory, this car is ready to be enjoyed with its fully rebuilt engine and its Dennis Welch aluminium cylinder head. An exemplary 4 owner car.
To many collectors and enthusiasts, the Austin-Healey 100's are the purest of the big Healeys. They're sleek, stunning to view and have that big, torquey engine, and though a good example like this one is ideal for carving up deserted back roads, it is also capable of keeping up with modern traffic. In a market where many cars are declining in value, there is an ever-increasing demand for these early Austin-Healeys, especially those refitted to 100M Le Mans specification.
