Chassis no. BN2L/233124

€45,000 - 65,000

A late left-hand drive BN2 incorporating all the developments applied to that model, this example benefits from a complete restoration carried out between 1993 and 1995. Sold new in the USA, the car was last registered for regular street use in California in 1973 and on 8th October 1986 passed via Peter's Marina Motors to Ernest Rose Jr. The current vendor purchased the Healey on 10th March 1993 and first registered it in Texas and then Belgium. Between 1993 and 1995 the Healey was treated to an extensive restoration that involved chemically stripping the chassis and body, followed by phosphate coating, priming and finally two coats of PPG acrylic paint in the original livery of white with black sides. In addition, the engine was rebuilt and the gearbox and rear axle overhauled and repainted in the original colours, all the work being carried out by professional specialists. Since then the Healey has seen only 1,000 miles of fair-weather use and been stored in a heated garage. A matching numbers example, the car has the desirable four-speed overdrive transmission and new 72-spoke wire wheels, while other noteworthy features include an unleaded-compatible cylinder head, alternator electrics, new-old-stock wiring harness, polished rocker cover and leather interior. Eligible for some of the most prestigious historic events including the Mille Miglia and Tour Auto, this beautiful Austin-Healey 100 is offered with sundry restoration invoices, BMIHT certificate, Belgian registration papers and roadworthiness certificate.
