Sellers description:

This 1954 Austin-Healey is a partially-complete project that began life as a North American-market 100 BN1 Roadster and was acquired by the seller in 2012 out of New York. After moving the vehicle to Kentucky, the seller enlisted marque specialist Steve Norton of Cape International to create a 100S tribute. Norton sourced a chassis from Kilmartin and provided the coach-built aluminum body along with the brakes, rear axle, and inline-four engine, which was rebuilt with a Weslake head, Weber 45 DCOE carbs, and a 100S camshaft. The 4-speed manual gearbox is equipped with overdrive and was rebuilt by Leo Ruof, and the vehicle is accompanied by components for a RHD conversion. This Austin-Healey is now being offered for sale as a disassembled project with a custom dolly, some records from the build, a British Heritiage Trust certificate, and a clear Kentucky title.

Originally built on June 25, 1954, this car was finished in Spruce Green over a green interior per the British Heritage Trust certificate. The original body and chassis have been removed, and an aluminum 100S-style body was built by Cape International and mounted on a Kilmartin chassis.

Bodywork is reportedly complete, and the car has been repainted in a modern Jaguar shade of British Racing Green. Per the seller, the chassis and internal support structures have been painted along with the jambs, fenders, doors, hood, and trunk lid, though these panels are not currently installed.

Seat shells sourced from Ahead 4 Healeys are trimmed in green vinyl with white piping, and additional upholstery accompanies the sale along with a windscreen and a new set of 100S-style gauges. Components for the right-hand drive conversion include a dashboard, wiring harness, pedals, pivot shaft, accelerator linkage, and a Dennis Welch quick-ratio steering box.

A 100S-style fuel tank has been installed, and a side-exit exhaust and an original-style barrel oil cooler are included.

The engine was rebuilt by Cape International with a Weslake head, Weber 45 DCOE carburetors, a 100S camshaft, and high lift valve springs. The build reportedly used the original block along with new pistons, rods, crankshaft, a lightweight flywheel, and a rebuilt generator. Per the seller, the engine was dyno'd at 170 horsepower and is set up to run on pump gas. A BN2 4-speed manual transmission with overdrive was rebuilt by Leo Ruof, and the rear axles utilize ring and pinion gears with a final-drive ratio of 3.54:1.

The 4-wheel disc brake are said to be complete, while items remaining to be addressed include:

Radiator

Shocks

Oil cooler flex lines

Brake hard lines and hoses

Brake master cylinder and reservoir

Fuel pump and lines

Rear tail lights

Steering wheel

Wheels and tires

Battery

This right-hand drive Austin-Healey 100S tribute began life as a North American-market 100 BN1 roadster and was listed as a project on BaT in July 2018 and July 2019, when it was acquired by its current owner. The car was completed in February 2020 and features an aluminum body that was fabricated by Cape International in England and is mounted over a Kilmartin frame. Power comes from a BN1 inline-four with a Weslake cylinder head, Weber 45 DCOE carburetors, and a 100S camshaft, while shifting is through a rebuilt four-speed manual gearbox from a BN2 model that is paired with a 3.54:1 rear end. Additional features include a Dennis Welch quick-ratio steering box, 48-spoke wire wheels, aluminum-backed seats, and more. This 100S tribute is offered by the seller on behalf of its current owner with a spare set of wheels, a tonneau cover, a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate, and a clean Washington State title. 

This BN1 was originally built on June 25, 1954 and has since been fitted with an aluminum body from marque specialist Steve Norton of Cape International in Redditch, England that was completed in 2012. The shell is said to feature factory-style welds and bracing as well as an aluminum bonnet, doors, boot lid, and fenders. British Racing Green paint was applied under previous ownership. A polished and clear-coated S grille has been fitted along with a plexiglass windscreen, a leather bonnet strap, 100S badges, and door meatballs. 

The car is said to be built on a Kilmartin frame and rides on painted 15″ 48-spoke knock-off wire wheels with Blockley radial tires. A matching spare is mounted in the trunk. A set of silver 72-spoke wheels is included in the sale and can be seen in the gallery. Suspension modifications include front and rear lowering kits, competition-style front coil and rear leaf springs, aftermarket dampers, and a Panhard bar. A Dennis Welch quick-ratio steering box has been installed, while braking is handled by discs at all four corners.

The cockpit is trimmed in green upholstery with white piping, matching carpets, and gray-painted cabin trim. Features include aluminum seat shells from A-Head 4 Healeys in the UK, lap belts, a dash-mounted mirror, and coco floor mats.

A wood-rimmed steering wheel frames 100S-style Smiths instrumentation including a 140-mph speedometer and a tachometer along with gauges for fuel, coolant temperature, and oil pressure and temperature. The five-digit odometer shows 12 miles.

The inline-four was reportedly built by Richard Parker of Cape International with a BN1 block, a Weslake cylinder head, a 100S camshaft, high-lift valve springs, and a lightweight flywheel as well as a replacement crankshaft, pistons, and rods. Induction is from twin Weber 45 DCOE carburetors, and an aluminum radiator was installed along with a rebuilt generator. Shifting is through a BN2 gearbox that is said to have been rebuilt by Leo Ruof and routes power to the rear wheels via a 3.54:1 rear end.

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?
