1954 Austin Healey 100-4 Roadster V8 Conversion!!!!
The new Austin-Healey went into production in 1953 and was immediately popular in the U. S. These cars were well-styled. inexpensive. rugged and above all easy to drive. for both the sports car enthusiast who fancied some light competition or just for tooling down to the shops.
The "100" name comes from Donald Healey. who selected the name from the car's ability to reach 100 mph (160 km/h). as opposed to the Austin-Healey 3000. which is named for its 3000 cc engine.
Austin described the car as an open two-seater with individual bucket seats with an enclosed rear luggage space. Full weather protection was provided by a folding fabric top and detachable perspex side-screens. A unique feature of the 100 was it's folding front window which made for a very sleek profile!
The 100-4 is all part of the hairy chested big brute Healey saga. and it is exactly what a classic British roadster is supposed to be: A simple sports car with great performance. beautiful styling. and a fantastic history to back it all up.
