•Sought-after late BN2 model with four-speed gearbox and overdrive
•Desirable 100M 'Le Mans' upgrades
•Matching numbers, matching colours
•Excellent condition
•Comes with BMIHT Certificate

Fitted with the desirable performance-enhancing 'Le Mans' kit, the extremely impressive and beautiful Austin-Healey 100/4 BN2 offered here has been superbly restored by Holland's top Healey 100 specialist, Bart van Tiggelen. The original four-cylinder '100' is said to be one of the most enjoyable Healeys to drive, and this example incorporates sensible upgrades such as disc brakes, an aluminium fuel tank, and an aluminium cylinder head from marque specialist, Denis Welch.

Boasting superb shut lines to the doors, bonnet and boot, the straight and solid body received a high quality re-spray in the original Healey Blue colour during the restoration. The engine, front/rear suspension, and rear axle have been dismantled and completely overhauled, while car also received a complete new wiring harness. More recently (in September 2017) the gearbox was overhauled and a complete new clutch assembly installed as well.

The interior is in generally excellent condition, the seats and carpets being like new, while the instruments have been rebuilt and all are in working order. The original switches and controls are present and all function correctly. The engine bay is very well presented and the brightwork is excellent throughout.

In the vendor's own words, this well prepared Healey 100 is 'one of a kind', it is said to drive better than any other BN2. Equipped with the 'Le Mans' kit, it has ample power and torque, and can cruise comfortably at a speed of 120-140km/h with the overdrive engaged. When the ignition key is turned, the engine starts easily and it becomes clear immediately that it is a very strong performer. The low weight and strong engine are a highly effective combination, while the fantastic exhaust note makes every drive even more enjoyable. Oil pressure is spot-on, and the rebuilt gearbox shifts very well with good synchros, warm or cold. The brakes are excellent as well.

In short: this is a beautiful Mille Miglia eligible Austin-Healey 100/4 BN2 equipped with the 'Le Mans' kit, in a fetching colour combination and driving superbly. It is ready to enjoy immediately on any long tour or suitable rally event.
