1955 Austin-Healey 100/4 BN2 Roadster

The Zoute Sale

9 October 2022, 13:00 CEST

Knokke-Heist, Place Albert de Knokke Le Zoute

€85,000 - €125,000

Engine no. 1B/228627

• Painstakingly restored and upgraded with no expense spared

• 170bhp prepared engine

• Overdrive gearbox

• Quaife limited-slip differential

• Period-correct disc brakes

• Perfect regularity-rally car

This car has been built as a tribute to the various speed records set by Donald Healey with the first-of-the-line four-cylinder Austin-Healey 100. A matching-numbers example, the car has been painstakingly restored and improved upon by its enthusiast owner, yet with respect its originality. The car has a BMIHT Certificate and has been restored accordingly red with a black leather interior.

More than 1,600 hours were needed to get the bodywork in perfect shape, while the interior carpeting has been hand-stitched in order to ensure the best possible fit. Nappa leather was used for the seats. The hood has been hand-stitched from Sonnenland fabric and lined with the same high quality woollen material used for the interior. A trickle charger, circuit breaker and a custom made bag to hold the side screens have been added. Because the original Austin-Healey 100s used Jaguar D-type wheels for their speed record attempts, this car has been fitted with the same period-correct custom-made 16" Jaguar D-type wheels.

The heart of this car is the utterly wonderful engine, which was built by Dutch specialist Wim Janzen to the highest possible specification, producing 170bhp and 259Nm torque on the dynamometer (invoices available). Needless to say, even by modern standards, this is a fast car. Cooling has been upgraded by installing a heavy-duty radiator together with an electric fan. Other upgrades include period-correct disc brakes and a Quaife limited-slip differential. The gearbox has been completely rebuilt and has a functioning overdrive on 3rd and 4th gears. A glorious sounding side exhaust is another delightful feature. For the enthusiast driver, a fully removable aluminium panel carrying rally equipment (Brantz counter and clocks) has been installed. In short: this one-of-a-kind car has been treated to a no-expense-spared restoration that will allow the future owner to participate in classic rallies. The car is EU taxes paid and comes with an old US title.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
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?
