Car was at auction in '97 ...

Auction description:
Lot Number: 67
1958 Austin-Healey 100
Not Sold
Reg Number: PSY 296
Chassis Number: BN4056893
Engine Number: 26DRM56893
Cc: 2639
Body Colour: Maroon

MOT ExpiryDate: Sep 2004

This 1958-built and righthand-drive 100/6 came home from South Africa in 1997 with some history. Included with the Midland-made sportscar is a Heritage certificate confirming manufacture details as well as the majority of receipts covering work carried out and former MOT test certificates, the present one being current until September.

Since acquisition, the vendor tells us, the overall condition of this vehicle has been enhanced, though only by sympathetic restoration work which has been done by marque experts. He also claims that PSY 296 has been regularly serviced and maintained only by specialists, a stainless steel exhaust being fitted in 2001.

Current condition of chassis rails, body panels and maroon paintwork is described as being good with black interior worn, though tidy. The 2639cc six, the electrical equipment and the 4-speed manual gearbox are reportedly all in good order.

Part of a private collection in Staffordshire, this claimed to be a good, tidy and useable example of the 100/6 is only being sold due to lack of use and will have been driven to our auction at Buxton.

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?
