From the original austinhealey.com web site. Owner Jim LeBlanc:
"Does anybody have a Shelly LJ21 56 jack ? It seems as if I can find anything ever made for any car or antique motorcycle. But no leads on the Shelly LJ21 56 jack."

When the current owner found this Austin-Healey in the early 1980s, offered by Carole Walker, a self-described "little old lady from Pasadena," he was surprised to discover it had a louvered hood and other unusual engine parts. The British Motor Industry Heritage Trust confirmed that it was one of those 640 factory-converted 100 Ms. As such, he had it restored by noted Healey race mechanic Tom Colby at Speedwell, a Southern California Healey shop, in the early 1990s, after which it was inspected and registered with the Austin-Healey Concours Registry. The car was recently refreshed by Colby, who rebuilt the engine using Denis Welch competition parts, along with rebuilding the transmission, overdrive, differential, and steering gear. Furthermore, he replaced the wiring harnesses, all wear parts, and fitted a set of new tires. The 100 M has since been driven no more than 500 miles.
The owner departed in a few respects from traditional concours standards to satisfy his own tastes; for example, the wire wheels are painted a body color similar to those on the Healey 100 S, and the grille has been chromed. The Healey also features a factory-optional chrome valve cover. The owner found rare original side-curtains and a full tool kit, which are included along with a set of manuals.
The next caretaker can be pleased to have not only a very collectible certified 100 M, but also know that its performance and reliability put it among the best of the best of this desirable breed
