This example, like many, was destined for the US market. It is documented by its British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate as a factory-built 100 M ‘Le Mans,’ delivered new with the louvered bonnet and the full accoutrement of 100 M performance enhancements. Originally ordered in two-tone white and black over a black upholstery, the exterior color has since been changed to red, a livery this car has worn since at least the early 1980s. The car is known to the 100 M “Le Mans” Registry and has been recognized as a genuine factory-built example, as indicated by a Membership Certificate issued to previous owner Ralph Deuschle in 2005.
This delightful Austin-Healey is offered with said documentation in addition to a tool roll, spare tire, knockoff hammer, side curtains, and a reproduction owner’s handbook. The engine and body tags are original to the car, attesting to its matching numbers engine status, and the car importantly retains its original louvered bonnet bearing the body number.
A genuine, factory-built 100 M is one of the most sought-after British sports cars of the 1950s. Eligible for a wide variety of rallies and touring events, including the Mille Miglia, this Austin-Healey is sure to provide many more decades of top-down, raked-back windshield British motoring excitement.
