This 1955 Austin-Healey 100 BN1 Roadster is powered by a 289ci V8 paired with a three-speed Ford C4 automatic transmission and is finished in black over tan. Equipment includes 15″ wire wheels, a Halda SpeedPilot, a foldback windshield, Talbot mirrors, headlight grille protectors, a fog light, a driving light, three-inch lap belts, and a dash grab handle. The car was acquired by the selling dealer in April 2022. Work performed during previous ownership reportedly included installing a Web Cam Performance camshaft, an Edelbrock high rise intake manifold, a 650cfm Holley carburetor, a Mallory Unilite electronic ignition system, a Promaster ignition coil, front disc brakes, and Stewart Warner auxiliary gauges. Additional work performed since 2018 has consisted of installing an aluminum radiator and replacing the wiring harness, coolant hoses, engine mounts, and spark plugs. This BN1 Roadster is now offered in California with service records and a clean Minnesota title.
The body is finished in black and features fender flares, a foldback windshield, a tonneau cover, Talbot mirrors, side vents, hood louvers and straps, headlight grille protectors, a fog light, a driving light, and side-exit exhaust pipes.
Powder-coated 15″ wire wheels feature knock-off hubs and are wrapped in 185/80 Nexen tires up front and 215/75 Tempest Radial tires out back. Front disc brakes have been added. The universal joint and parking brake have reportedly been replaced. Tubular frame reinforcements have been added to the chassis.
The bucket seats are upholstered tan leather and are joined by a matching dash and door panels. Interior details include three-inch lap belts, a dash-mounted rearview mirror, and a dash handlebar.
The banjo-style steering wheel fronts a custom dash that houses a Faria tachometer and a Stewart Warner 160-mph speedometer along with auxiliary gauges. A Speed Pilot instrument is housed in the center dash. The five-digit odometer shows 24k miles. Total mileage is unknown.
The replacement 289ci V8 reportedly features a Web Cam Performance camshaft as well as an Edelbrock high rise intake manifold, a 650cfm Holley carburetor, Shelby finned aluminum valve covers, and long tube headers. Work under previous ownership is said to have included installing a Mallory Unilite electronic ignition system and a Promaster ignition coil. Work performed since 2018 is said to include installing an aluminum radiator and replacing coolant hoses for the engine and transmission as well as wiring harness, header gaskets, engine mounts, and spark plugs.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a three-speed Ford C4 automatic transmission and a Ford 9″ rear differential.
