Lot #84994

This 1956 Austin-Healey 100 BN2 roadster is said to have been refurbished and modified with a 100M Le Mans conversion kit under previous ownership. The car is finished in red and black over black leather and powered by a 2,660cc inline-four paired with a four-speed manual transmission with overdrive. Features include a louvered hood secured with a leather tie-down strap, an adjustable reclining windshield, a black soft top, side curtains, twin SU carburetors, 15″ wire wheels with knockoffs, a wood-rimmed steering wheel, and a cabin heater. This 100 BN2 Roadster is offered in Colorado with a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate, an owner’s handbook, a tool kit, spare parts, and a clean Montana title in the name of the seller’s LLC.

The car was factory finished in black and was repainted in its current red-over-black scheme during a refurbishment that is said to have been completed under previous ownership in 1988. A Le Mans kit louvered hood and leather belt are fitted, and additional equipment consists of a black soft top, removable side curtains, an adjustable windshield, standing fog lights, and chrome bumpers with overriders.

Painted 15″ knock-off wire wheels wear Dunlop Road Speed RS5 tires.

The car left the factory with a red interior and now features bucket seats upholstered in black leather joined by matching door panels and carpeting. Additional equipment includes a cabin heater, a passenger-side grab handle, bright trim, and a dash-mounted rearview mirror.

A wood-rimmed steering wheel frames Smiths instrumentation including a 120-mph speedometer, a tachometer, and auxiliary gauges for oil pressure, coolant temperature, and fuel level. The five-digit odometer shows 581 miles, approximately 50 of which were added under current ownership. Total mileage is unknown.

The 2,660cc inline-four features Le Mans kit components installed under previous ownership including dual SU carburetors, unique inlet manifolds, and a higher-flow airbox with a Le Mans Modification Kit badge. The cylinder head bolts were torqued and the hose clamps were replaced during a 2022 service.

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

The British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate indicates a build date of September 19, 1955, as well as factory equipment and serial numbers.

The data tag indicates a serial number of BN2L228559 while the Montana title shows a VIN of 228559.

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?
