Car to be at auction 4/17
Auction Techno-Classica 2017
Lot Number 160
Reg. Number EU Taxes Paid
Chassis Number BN2-L/233071
One of only 640 original factory Le Mans specification examples, chassis 233071 was supplied in June 1956 to a member of the US military, based in Duesseldorf, fitted with the factory options of a heater, laminated windscreen, MPH speedometer and louvered bonnet. The Healey was then exported to the US where it participated in races in period. In 1990 the 100M was repatriated into Europe, whereupon a highly detailed restoration was commissioned in 1993, which has only recently been completed. The restoration is supported by a number of invoices and a photographic file of the works undertaken. Since completion, the car has covered just a nominal amount of test miles to "shake out" any minor issues.
Beautifully finished in its original colour combination of Old English White over Blue, with a blue leather interior and hood, and offered with the relevant Heritage certificate, this is a rare opportunity to own one of the most iconic and enjoyable sports cars of the 1950s.
