A rare opportunity to buy one of the fastest appreciating Classic British sports cars following the run away success of Aston Martin values.

 Austin Healey 100 BN1. Chassis number BN1- L/2262691955 manufactured on 16th June 1955 and delivered to California where the car remained until 2012. Previous owner had the car for more than 30 years during which time the car was dismantled and many major items including the engine. gearbox and suspension were reconditioned. The body panels were removed and painted in a grey metallic colour which looks stunning! The car was never fully assembled until I purchased it completing the work including fitting a new wiring loom and many more parts. The interior has been finished in grey leather with grey carpets throughout trimmed with a grey binding. Tyres and brakes are new and there is a comprehensive toolkit in leather bound box. wheel mallet and jack finished in the body colour. The car performs superbly the engine is extremely willing and the acceleration seems far brisker than many Healey's . this may be due to some internal engine improvements but I cannot verify this externally. The car has been fitted with a Denso light weight alternator. electric cooling fans and narrow gauge drive belts improving the engine refinement. the original generator and mechanical fan will be supplied with the car.   The controls are light and precise. the gearbox is a delight to use and the overdrive snaps in and out instantly  as it should. The car has been thermally insulated to prevent  excessive engine heat entering the driver and passenger areas. The car is ready for serious rallying (including the Mille Miglia!) the seats are full leather MX5 with three point seat belts and full forward . aft and tilt adjustment. Original Healey seats can be readily fitted however the MX5 seat looks period and offers significant comfort and safety advantages over the basic Healey seat.   The hood and frame come with the car but have not yet been fitted as the hood will require replacement and the colour choice is down to individual but grey Mohair would look  fabulous on this car.

The car is on sale without reserve. buy it now offers will be considered prior to bids beyond the starting bid. Overseas bidders are welcome and I will assist where able with export arrangements.

To arrange inspection please call Rod 0789 4472360

£250 deposit required at end of auction and balance following final inspection by purchaser. good luck.
