Car to be at auction 4/13
Lot 137 - 1954 Austin Healey 100 BN1
Estimate: €50,000 - €57,000
Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: BN1-L/219159
This superb example was delivered to the USA in 1954 where it remained until 1992. During this time, the car was converted to race specification and took part in several historic races. In 1992 the car was bought by a German collector who imported it to Germany in a poor state of repair. He began to restore the car but realised the project exceeded his skills and stored it until 2010 when he sold it on to a German restorer.
The car then underwent a complete frame off restoration which was finished in January 2013 at an estimated cost of 120,000 Euros, which is all documented on file. This Healey has Brooklands style aero windshields, the engine has been upgraded to Le Mans specification - with big valves, carburetors and heads.
Also, to note the car comes with no bumpers, no roof/hood and has a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate. This car would provide exciting driving for road or track use and epitomizes everything that a British sports car can provide.
