Car to be at auction 3/12
www.coys.co.uk/auction.php

Auction description:
Lot 349 - 1955 Austin Healey BN1
Estimate: £32,000 - £37,000
Registration Number: RNY 780
Chassis Number: BN1220239

This stunning Austin Healey BN1 has previously been subject to a substantial restoration, with bills and small photographic record on file to support this. The current vendor, a collector of 50's and 60's British sports cars states the car is "outstanding" to drive, and today presents itself in great condition.

RNY 780 comes complete with a detailed history dating back to 1990, along with an original green log book. Recent modifications include the period upgrade to disc brakes on the front thus greatly enhancing the drivability of the car. RNY 780 is supplied with a UK V5 registration document and an MoT until September 2012.

This superb early Austin Healey is eligible for the most prestigious events such as the Mille Miglia and as such is an opportunity not to be missed. Timelessly classic, RNY 780's sleek British design offers the opportunity to purchase a great example of the purest of the '100' Healey models and would provide the perfect edition to any collection.

- A 'home market' car that was treated to a photographically documented restoration during the 1980s

A 'home market' car, 'RNY 780' was treated to a photographically documented restoration during the 1980s as part of which its livery was changed from Orange to Ice Blue. Retaining the three-speed manual plus overdrive gearbox associated with the BN1 model, the Austin-Healey has had its front brakes uprated from drums to discs. Further benefiting from a recent repaint, it sports full weather equipment including a tonneau cover and sidescreens and is described by the vendor as being in 'fabulous yet usable condition'. Offered for sale with V5C Registration Document and 'nice history file'.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
