Chassis BN1L227549

This 1955 Austin-Healey 100/4 BN1, chassis BN1L227549, has led a charmed life in the fast lane, first as a long-time race car participating in VSCCA and SVRA vintage races and later on rallies like the Colorado Grand and California Mille.

The previous owner purchased the Austin-Healey in 2010 through Automotive Restorations / Vintage Racing Services. Kent Bain's well-known and respected shop knew the car very well having supported it during its time on the vintage racing circuit.

After purchase, a great deal of time and money was spent to bring the car to its current specification, totaling more than $120,000 in receipts from Automotive Restorations / Vintage Racing Services. Among others, the prior owner did the following as part of the restoration in 2010 - 2012:

* Body was taken down to bare metal and painted Aston Martin Green with Old English White coves

* Engine was completely rebuilt

* Installation of custom made Dunlop knock-off wheels from Racemettle in England; original wire wheels are also present and painted Old English White

* Custom Mota-Lita steering wheel

* New leather seats from Heritage Upholstery in Cream with Green piping

* Brand new carpet set from Heritage Upholstery in Aston Green

* New convertible top and tonneau cover installation

* Installation of twin Lucas 7-inch Flamethrower driving lights mounted on Dennis Welch light brackets

* Installation of Dennis Welch front disc brake kit

* Uprated alternator, aluminum Cape Sport Radiator, accessory cooling fan

Post-restoration, chassis BN1L227549 has successfully participated in two Colorado Grand (2015, 2017) and two California Mille (2012, 2013) rallies, in addition to numerous events throughout New England.

While most Austin-Healeys offer spirited performance and enduring aesthetics, this 100/4 provides the added benefits of thoughtful modifications and a brilliant restoration. Combine these with a California Mille, Colorado Grand and Mille Miglia friendly build date of 1955 and this 100/4 is as well suited to the show circuit as it is for high-speed tours.

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?
