Developed by Donald Healey to be produced in-house by Healey's in Warwick and based on Austin Atlantic A90 mechanicals. Healey built a single Healey Hundred for the 1952 London motor show and the design impressed Leonard Lord. managing director of Austin who was looking for a replacement to the unsuccessful A90. Lord struck a deal with Healey to build it in quantity. bodies made by Jensen Motors were given Austin mechanical components at Austin's Longbridge factory. The car was renamed the Austin-Healey 100.

The "100" was named by Healey for the car's ability to reach 100 mph (160 km/h); its successor. the better known Austin Healey 3000 was named for the 3000 cc displacement of its engine.
[3] Production Austin-Healey 100s were finished at Austin's Longbridge plant alongside the A90 and based on fully trimmed and painted body/chassis units produced by Jensen in West Broomwich—in an arrangement the two companies previously had explored with the Austin A40 sports. 14. 34 Austin-Healey 100s were produced.

The 100 was the first of three models later called the Big Healey's  to distinguish them from the much smaller Austin Healey Sprite. The Big Healeys are often referred to by their three-character model designations rather than by their models. as the model names do not reflect the mechanical differences and similarities well.

The replacement for the 100 was the 100-6. The 100-6 featured a 2 in (50. 8 mm) longer wheelbase than the 100. a more powerful straight 6 engine in place of its slightly larger inline 4 and added two occasional seats (which later became optional). The body lines were slightly streamlined. a smaller. wider radiator placed lower. an air scoop was added to the bonnet. and the windscreen fixed.

The 100-6 was produced in two the 2+2 BN4 from 1956 onwards and the 2-seat BN6 in 1958-9.

In late 1957 production was transferred from Longbridge to the MG plant at Abingdon 14. 36 100-6s were produced before production ended in 1959

A 117 bhp (87 kW) BN6 was tested by The Motor magazine in 1959 had a top speed of 103. 9 mph (167. 2 km/h) and could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 10. 7 seconds. The test car cost £1307 including taxes of £436.
