This 1956 Austin-Healey 100 BN2 roadster was acquired by its current owner in 1998 and has been campaigned in CSRG, HMSA, and SVRA vintage racing events for over 25 years. Power is from a modified inline-four mated to a four-speed manual transmission with overdrive, and the car is finished in red over a black interior. Modifications for track use include a roll bar, an ATL fuel cell, racing harnesses, and more. The car was last serviced with an oil change and installation of a new overdrive toggle switch following its most recent race at the Sonoma Historic Motorsports Festival in June 2018. This BN2 is reportedly street-legal in California and is offered on dealer consignment with logbooks beginning in 1993, service history from 2018, and a clean California title.
The body is finished in red with white vintage-style meatballs on the hood, doors, and trunk lid. The rocker panels were replaced in 2018, and paint chips and touched-up areas around the hood. The bumpers have been removed and the doors bolted closed for competition.
Painted 15″ wire wheels feature chrome knock-off spinners and are shod with Hoosier Vintage TD tires. Rearview mirrors include two mounted at the ends of the fenders and a pair of Raydot-style versions at the windshield pillars.
The cabin features black vinyl bucket seats with racing harnesses as well as matching carpeting and side panels. Race and event stickers adorn the windshield. A tubular roll bar has been fitted, and a black tonneau cover is included in the sale.
A leather-wrapped Moto-Lita steering wheel frames AutoMeter instrumentation. The car is not equipped with an odometer. A battery kill switch is fitted behind the front seats, a fire switch on the dash, and a fire bottle beneath.
The roll bar extends to the trunk, which also contains an ATL fuel cell and a Holley pump as well as a battery which was replaced in 2018.
The inline-four is thought to have been overbored under previous ownership and features a Weslake Racing cylinder head with a Denis Welch valve cover. Induction is via twin SU carburetors, with cooling from a Wizard Cooling aluminum radiator. Maintenance performed by the selling dealer between May and June 2018 is outlined on receipts.
Power is sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission with overdrive, the toggle switch for which was replaced after the car’s last race in 2018. Anti-tramp bars have been fitted to the rear suspension.
