Auction description:
Amelia Island
09 March 2013
Lot 135
1956 Austin-Healey 100M BN2 'Dealer-Prepared' Le Mans Roadster
Sold for $96,250

Chassis no. BN2-L/231533
Engine no. 1/231533M
Body no. 13086

Fresh restoration by Tom and Randee Rocke of Healey Lane
Numbers-matching, dealer-prepared Le Mans spec car
Ideal for show or driving

Based upon the two cars that entered and placed at Second and Third in Class at Le Mans in 1953, the Austin-Healey 100M featured major upgrades, including a high-lift camshaft, larger carburetors, high-compression pistons, a free-flowing intake manifold, a cold air box, and a unique distributor. Engine output increased by 20 horsepower, and the suspension received larger anti-roll bars, while a Le Mans-specification leather strap secured the louvered hood.
The car offered here is a dealer-converted Le Mans-specification car, fresh from an exacting restoration by marque specialists Tom and Randee Rocke of Healey Lane in Riverside, California. The matching-numbers engine, transmission, and overdrive were fully rebuilt, and new brake and fuel lines, a master brake and slave cylinders, jet-coated brake drums, a fuel pump, and a gas tank were installed. The car is now equipped with a jet-coated stainless steel exhaust, a Le Mans-specification cold air box, an alloy Le Mans cooling fan, and a new four-row radiator. All dashboard gauges are fully rebuilt, and the steering wheel, drop-down racing windshield, and Le Mans dash plaque are all new. The freshly chromed 100/4 bumpers and 48-spoke wire wheels sparkle.

This spectacular, fresh Austin-Healey, to the most desirable specification, is equipped with its British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate and full photo documentation of the restoration, and it comes with a one-year, full drivetrain warranty.
