Car returned to auction 3/16
Lot number 35
Hammer value £38,500
Description Austin-Healey 100/4 BN1
Registration 384 BMF
Engine size 2,660 cc
Chassis No. BN1154432
Engine No. 1B207267
Documents V5C; MOT February 2017; Heritage Certificate; restoration invoices and photos; magazine feature; handbook
First registered in London in April 1954, this rare original RHD BN1 was fully restored in the early 1990s and was then featured in an interesting magazine article which can be found in the history file. Carefully used and further improved since then, she presents extremely well and benefits from more recent improvements which include: Denis Welch alloy head converted to unleaded fuel; pre-engaged starter motor; alloy fuel tank; stainless steel exhaust; refurbished interior (cost £2,700, bill on file) plus a new set of wire wheels and tyres.
On a recent, lengthy road test she was said to perform particularly well, maintaining good oil pressure and displaying none of the 'notchiness' in the gearbox often associated with these early Healeys. The accompanying History File includes: 'before and after' restoration photos; assorted invoices; owner's handbook; Heritage Certificate; previous MOTs; magazine article from July 1991.
Bidders are advised that at some stage in the past a V5C has been issued with the chassis number erroneously shown as BN1L, indicating a LHD car. This is wholly incorrect as borne out by the Heritage Certificate, the original chassis plate still affixed to the front chassis member and the magazine article, all of which confirm that it is an original 'matching numbers' RHD car.
Offered complete with good hood, side screens and tonneau cover, this lovely black Healey is MOT tested to February 2017 and is ready for a new owner to enjoy over the coming season.
