From the original austinhealey.com web site. Owner Ken Freese:

"A Healey Owner Since 16

I've had Healey's since I was 16 and living on a farm in Iowa. My first 100-6 was purchased for $850 in December 1968. It was hit on the way home from the seller by a Chrysler wagon. It was ready to go again in the spring. A couple of years later that car was hit again and totaled. I then got a 66 3000 Mk III for $950. I rolled it (my fault this time) and it took a few years to get it back together.

In the meantime I got married and moved to Southern California bringing the BJ8 when I needed another daily driver. I found a 100S in a driveway just walking by one day and bought it. It was a rolling basked case and I thought that I would have to wait until retirement to get started. I sold the 66 BJ8 and soon bought a straighter 65 BJ8, white w red interior. Because of an overseas job assignment in Australia, I was able to get started on the 100S sooner than retirement and finished it New Years Eve 1994. We've done well on the concours circuit so far.

Although I still drive it a lot, the BJ8 needs fresh paint and interior so we hope to get started on it soon. My wife, Marsha says the BJ8 is the most reliable car we have. I am a member of the Austin-Healey Association, AH Club, Pacific Centre, and the Jensen Interceptor Owner's Club. We have the S, BJ8, 74 Jensen Interceptor, 78 Ford Fiesta, and 94 Audi 90S. We have a lot of Australian Healey friends and participated in the Healey Hilton a lot. Look us up if you're in the neighborhood (Disneyland)."

Lot #78931

This 1955 Austin-Healey 100S is one of 50 examples of the production alloy-bodied sports racer manufactured in 1955 and was imported to the US when new by Gough Industries in Los Angeles. Chassis AHS-3706 is said to have been sold new through Burbank Sports Cars in Los Angeles and campaigned locally by the dealership’s owner before being sold to its next owner, who continued to race it at area circuits through 1959. The car’s racing career carried on through the early 1960s under ownership by a Southern California Army Warrant Officer who sold it upon his reassignment to Korea. After twice changing hands in the mid-1960s, it spent several years in disrepair until being acquired in 1979 by a Sacramento owner who completed a refurbishment in the mid-1990s. After leaving California and spending time with a Pennsylvania owner, the car was acquired in 2006 by Healey Werks in Iowa, from whom it was purchased by the selling dealer in 2011. An ensuing refurbishment included a repaint of the alloy bodywork replicating the pale blue livery worn by the car in the late 1950s as well as a rebuild of the 2,660cc inline-four, which features an aluminum alloy cylinder head. Equipment also includes a four-speed manual transmission, Dunlop four-wheel disc brakes, an oil cooler, painted wire wheels, a driver-side wraparound Perspex windscreen, and vented-back bucket seats trimmed in dark blue. This 100S is now offered in Indiana with historical photos from its racing career, images from the refurbishment under current ownership, an ownership chronology, a zippered tonneau cover, and a clean Iowa title.

The 100S was offered in 1955 as a race-ready production model inspired by five Special Test Cars built for Donald Healey’s competition program between 1953 and 1954. A 1954 class win and third overall at Sebring by one of the prototypes inspired the “S” designation in marketing for the production cars, which, like the prototypes, were built at Healey’s Warwick factory. Weight-saving construction featured aluminum-alloy body panels, a Perspex windscreen, a smaller grille opening, and the absence of bumpers or a convertible top.

This example was originally finished in two-tone white and blue and was repainted several times during its racing career. The refurbishment under current ownership included a repaint in pale blue with navy blue side stripes, which re-creates the livery seen in photos of the car during racing appearances in the late 1950s. A driver-side windscreen that extends to the door is similar to the screen seen on the car in the late 1950s, while additional features include a louvered hood with leather hold-down straps, a Monza-style fuel filler, and fender-mounted side mirrors.

Body-color wire wheels are secured by two-eared knock-offs and are mounted with Michelin tires, while a spare secured on the rear shelf is wrapped in BFGoodrich rubber. The 100S model’s Dunlop four-wheel disc brakes were a first for a production car, and a replacement master cylinder was fitted to this example in 2022.

The cockpit features bucket seats with ventilated backs wrapped in dark blue upholstery with white piping. Matching trim covers the center tunnel and dash panel, while the inner doors, footwells, and rear shelf are painted in royal blue. Additional features include black rubber floor mats, an offset shifter, and a dash-mounted rearview mirror.

The wood-rimmed steering wheel is situated on the right-hand side and frames Smiths instrumentation including a 140-mph speedometer, a 6k-rpm tachometer, and gauges monitoring oil temperature, oil pressure, coolant temperature, and fuel level. The five-digit odometer shows 1,800 miles, with true mileage unknown.

The 100S model’s 2,660cc OHV inline-four featured a Harry Weslake-designed aluminum cylinder head as well as a nitride-hardened crankshaft, a high-lift camshaft, and twin SU carburetors breathing through a cold-air intake box. An overhaul of this example’s engine was completed in 2022. Additional features include a combination oil cooler and filter housing, a 12-volt generator, and a 24-gallon fuel tank situated in the trunk.

Power is sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission with synchromesh on the highest three gears. Suspension incorporates a coil-sprung independent front setup with an anti-roll bar, a leaf-sprung solid rear axle with a Panhard rod, and Armstrong lever-arm hydraulic shock absorbers at each corner.

A summary of the car’s history compiled by the selling dealer is included, which also includes race results between 1956 and 1962. Invoices from refurbishment work between 2012 and 2022 are included in the gallery, as are a handful of images from the project.

The Iowa title is listed as a replacement.
