Car to be at auction 4/11
www.coys.co.uk/auction.php

Auction description:
Lot 124 - 1955 Austin Healey 110/4 - "M" Specification

Estimate: £50,000 - £60,000
Registration Number: BAM 176
Chassis Number: BN 2 L 230079

This matching numbers example started life as a 1955 model 100/4, which was first owned by a successful American banker, who imported the car into London from Gibraltar in December 1958. Upon its import to the UK the car was sent to the Austin Healey factory to be converted to full "Le Mans" specification.

With the previous owner, Mr. William Waller, for approximately 40 years, BAM 176 underwent a very thorough restoration which was completed in the late 1980s. Being a Rolls Royce engineer Mr Waller was fastidious to say the least. For example the slightly noisy standard first gear irritated him, so he machined a new one from a Rolls Royce part. Likewise the standard door locks were deemed a little crude, so new alloy door catches were machined to ensure smooth operation. Since restoration the car now shows under 4000 miles on the odometer.

In recent years this car has been cared for by the famous restorer John Chatham (aka "Mr. Healey"), who has completed work totalling over £6,000. John describes it as "The best Austin Healey 100 I have ever driven!".

Offered with a new MoT and both current and older vehicle registration documents, BAM 176 is described by the vendor to be in excellent condition in all respects.

Eligible for the most prestigious events such as the Mille Miglia, this really is a fantastic example of the highly desirable 100M model, and as such represents an opportunity not to be missed.
