for sale :
- Recently restored
- 4-speed transmission
During his numerous trips to the United States after the Second World War, Donald Healey very soon discovered the need for a little sports car with an engine from the series. Hence, the fairly pricey 2-seater was born. It was handsome and rustic but its four-cylinder, 2600 cm3 engine still reached above 175 km/h.
The original form of the Austin Healey 100, the BN1, sold 10,688 examples between 1953 and 1955, amounting to more than one hundred or so sales a week in the US.
The example for sale comes from California, where it has always been kept, and it still bears its typical Californian black plates. It has recently undergone a lot of work and, as such, the front wheel axle unit and anti-roll bar, brake discs and calipers, flexible hoses and brake linings have been restored. The carburettors have just been restored, as has the ignition. All four tires and the chrome on the bumpers are brand new. The petrol tank has been replaced with a brand new aluminium one. The Mohair hood is brand new and so are the black carpets, black faux leather seats and the red piping. The car is fitted with BN2 4-speed transmission.
