This 1957 Austin-Healey 100-6 four-seat BN4 roadster is finished in two-tone red and black over a reupholstered black leather interior and powered by a 2.6-liter inline-six mated to a replacement four-speed manual transmission with a Laycock overdrive unit. Equipment includes a four-wheel disc-brake conversion, Dayton 15″ wire wheels, dual SU carburetors, a Moto-Lita steering wheel, a Smiths heater and instrumentation, driving lamps, and a black-finished removable hardtop. The car was acquired by the seller in February 2023, and subsequent service has involved installing a section brake line to extend the bleed screw for the clutch slave cylinder and replacing the knock-off nuts and clutch cylinder along with the speedometer cable and angle drive. This BN4 is now offered with removed and spare parts, a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate, and a clean North Carolina title in the seller’s name.

The car left the factory finished in Ivory White and was repainted in two-tone red and black under previous ownership. A black removable hardtop with a replacement rear window is currently installed along with brightwork that includes a badge bar, driving lamps, fender moldings, front-fender flash trim, a windshield-post side mirror, external trunk hinges, and bumpers with overriders. The seller notes that the match lines of the doors are imperfect. Close-up photos depicting paint chips, cracks, and touch-ups along with a crease in the right-front fender, separation of the front crossmember beneath the radiator, delaminated chrome on the passenger-side front bumper overrider, mounting holes remain for previously installed fender mirrors and a decklid luggage rack.

Dayton 60-spoke 15″ wire wheels are finished in silver, secured by replacement two-eared knock-off nuts, and mounted with Michelin XAS tires that show 2014 date codes. A four-wheel disc-brake conversion installed under prior ownership is said to consist of Austin-Healey calipers and rotors up front along with equipment sourced from a period Jaguar at the rear. Service in preparation for the sale including installing a section of brake line to provide underhood access to the clutch bleed screw, and service under previous ownership is said to have included rebuilding the steering box.

The 2+2 cabin features low-back front bucket seats trimmed in black leather with red piping and a matching dash pad, door panels, and carpeting. Further appointments include a Smiths heater, a dash-mounted rearview mirror, a chrome passenger-side grab handle, red front-seat lap belts, polished door caps, and a custom shift knob fitted with an overdrive switch.

A wood-rimmed Moto-Lita steering wheel equipped with a rebuilt trafficator assembly fronts Smiths instrumentation consisting of a 120-mph speedometer, a tachometer with a 4,800-rpm redline, and gauges for oil pressure, coolant temperature, and fuel level. The five-digit odometer shows 21k miles, approximately 300 of which were added under current ownership. The speedometer cable and angle drive were replaced under current ownership, and the seller states that the speedometer registers low and the odometer is inaccurate. True mileage is unknown.

The 2.6-liter inline-six was factory rated at 102 horsepower and is equipped with dual SU carburetors, a Lucas coil, and an Austin-branded valve cover. Service performed under previous ownership is said to have included rebuilding the engine and the carburetors and also replacing the harmonic stabilizer and the radiator.

Power is sent to the rear wheels through a rebuilt replacement four-speed manual gearbox with a 3.54:1 final-drive ratio and an electrically actuated Laycock de Normanville overdrive. The seller reports that the clutch was replaced and the driveshaft was rebuilt and balanced under previous ownership, and the clutch slave cylinder was replaced in preparation for the sale.

The car is accompanied by removed parts including drum-brake assemblies, a non-overdrive transmission, a convertible-top frame, a banjo-style steering wheel, and a set of five steel wheels and hubcaps. Also accompanying the vehicle are a service manual, two keys, two convertible tops, and removable side curtains as well as the uninstalled headliner frame, upholstered panels, window gaskets, and extra headliner fabric for the hardtop. The older of the two soft tops has a patch panel across the top, and the seller states that the side-curtain gaskets should be replaced.

The British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate shows that the car was built for the export market in July 1957 and employed as a demonstrator at Aintree Racecourse in England before being dispatched to a dealer in Fort Worth, Texas. Additional details include factory serial numbers, colors, and equipment.

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?
