Car was at auction 1/13
www.rmauctions.com/lots/lot.cfm

Auction description:
Lot 124
1956 Austin-Healey 100M BN2 'Le Mans' Roadster
High Bid of $115,000

Chassis no. BN2-L/230129
Engine no. 1B/230129-M
Body no. 12045

• One of 640100M Le Mans factory-built roadsters
• Matching numbers, as confirmed by a BMC Heritage Certificate
• Reno Red with black coves and a red leather interior

The car on offer is a genuine, factory built, matching-numbers 100M, confirmed by its BMC Heritage Certificate. It was built in January 1956 and shipped to New York, fitted with a heater, a louvered hood, and a laminated windshield, top, and side curtains.

Recently restored inside and out, it was repainted in its original Reno Red, with black coves and a red leather interior. The car indicates 75,540 miles, which is believed to be original, and the car has been driven little since the restoration was completed.

Big Healeys have always been a pure joy to drive. They are fast enough for modern traffic, but big enough for U.S. distances, and they are relatively trouble-free. This has to be considered one of the most significant models, as well as one of the best-handling. The tilt-back windshield and knock-off wire wheels remain as iconic now as they were at the time.
