Lot #73012

This 1955 Austin-Healey 100 BN1 is a left-hand-drive roadster completed on August 12, 1955, for the North American export market and is powered by a numbers-matching 2.7L inline-four mated to a retrofitted four-speed manual transmission with overdrive. The car is said to be fitted with Le Mans equipment consisting of larger twin SU carburetors, a cold air box, and a louvered bonnet with a leather strap, and it was refinished in green over black leather under previous ownership. Additional equipment includes a folding windshield, driving lamps, a badge bar, chrome front and rear bumpers, and 15″ wire wheels with chrome knock-offs. This BN1 roadster was acquired by the current owner in 2022 and is now offered on dealer consignment in Arizona with a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate and a clean Washington State title.

The car was factory finished in Carmine Red and was repainted in Spruce Green under previous ownership. Equipment includes a black soft top, a full tonneau cover, a folding windscreen, a louvered hood with a brown leather retaining strap, a badge bar, driving lamps, and chrome-finished headlamp stone guards.

Silver-painted 15″ wire wheels are mounted with 165 series Dunlop SP20 A/S tires and are secured to the car with chrome two-eared knock-offs. A full-size spare is stowed in the trunk. Stopping power is provided by four-wheel drum brakes.

The refurbished interior features bucket seats trimmed in black leather with white piping accompanied by a matching pad on the driveshaft tunnel. Austin-Healey-branded rubber floor mats protect black carpeting, and safety equipment includes lap belts and a chrome grab handle affixed to the passenger side of the dash.

A 100M “Le Mans” registry plaque is secured to the body-color dash, stating that the car is equipped with the performance modifications used on the Austin-Healeys that competed in the 1953 Le Mans 24-hour race.

A wrapped wood-rimmed steering wheel fronts Smiths instrumentation including a 120-mph speedometer, a tachometer, and gauges for coolant temperature, oil pressure, and fuel level. The five-digit mechanical odometer shows 70k miles, approximately 50 of which have been added under current ownership. Total mileage is unknown.

The numbers-matching 2.7-liter inline-four was reportedly overhauled during the refurbishment and is said to be equipped with Le Mans equipment consisting of larger SU carburetors than the stock BN1 along with a cold air intake box.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a retrofitted four-speed manual transmission with overdrive.

The British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate lists serial numbers as well as the original color combination and factory equipment.

The VIN 227550 listed on the Washington State title excludes the BN1L prefix on the identification tag.

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?
