1953 Austin Healey Other for sale
Current customer rating: (158 votes) based on
For your consideration is an early 1953 Austin Healey BN1 which belonged to my father. This BN1 is originally black/black exterior with red interior. in my opinion the best color combo available. An original California car. it is solid throughout and would make a good basis for restoration. Having not spent much time on the road. the frame rails. outriggers. floors. rockers. and jack points are solid. It's been indoors for at least the last 30 years and shows little rust in the rear of both rockers. Other than that only light scale throughout. All of the fenders are in good condition for restoration. The bonnet is missing its framework but is a correct aluminum piece. Later Healey disc brakes have been added to the front and the reared is the original unit.
At some point during it's brief stint on the road. the owner of this Healey decided to install a rebuilt Buick V-6/auto trans for an unknown reason. He did not finish. The things people used to do. Original front and rear cowl. fenders. doors in great condition. Aluminum boot lid (appears original) and aluminum bonnet (not original - body #3183). Modified foot wells and original motor mounts have been taken out*. This is a great car to restore back to original or to modify into a nasty boy.
*Note: I have an early 4cyl Healey motor. rans. as well as correct motor mounts to restore this to original not included in the sale.
