1958 Austin-Healey 100/6 BN6 Roadster
Registration no. 623 YUD
Chassis no. BN6-L/3516
Engine no. 26D-U-H/70390
Sold for £44,275 inc. premium

This BN6 two-seater roadster represents the 'Big Healey' in its purest form. Chassis number 'L/3516' was built at MG's Abingdon works between 30th September and 2nd October 1958, and shipped to a dealer in San Francisco on 13th October. The accompanying BMIHT Certificate confirms matching numbers, the only changes from original specification being the colour scheme (originally black with red trim). In January 1990 the Healey returned to the UK with approximately 54,000 miles showing on the odometer. The current vendor has owned the car since 1990 and has carried out an extensive 'last nut and bolt' restoration to concours standard, paying great attention to detail and with originality in mind.
After stripping, the bodyshell was sandblasted and all floor panels (boot included), inner/outer sills and various outer panels replaced, the inner wings being repaired as necessary. The shell was then etch-primed, seam-sealed, treated underneath with stone chip, primed and then painted in Ice Blue and Old English White. The chassis was found to be generally sound, requiring very little or no attention.
The six-port cylinder head has been reconditioned and converted to unleaded compatibility with new valves, valve seats and seals etc. The cylinder block has been cleaned inside and out, re-bored to +0.020" and fitted with new pistons. The crankshaft was within 0.0005" of original so polished only and refitted with new bearings, thrust washers, big-end bolts and main bearing nuts. The timing chain and tensioner have been replaced and the water pump reconditioned. All oil and waterways in the block and cylinder head have been pressure cleaned and all core plugs renewed. The rear axle and differential were dismantled, cleaned and assembled using new parts where required while the clutch and gearbox were likewise reconditioned using new parts. The steering and braking systems were thoroughly overhauled and new tyres fitted.
All electrical components have been either overhauled or replaced with new items, and a new complete braided wiring harness installed. A new aluminium tank has been fitted together with fuel pump and all fuel lines, and the carburettors have been reconditioned. A complete new stainless steel exhaust and brackets is fitted. The radiator core and all the cooling system's rubber hoses have been replaced and a new fan belt fitted. Wherever possible the original exterior trim has been re-chromed, and elsewhere replaced. The hood and tonneau cover are new and the side screens have been reconditioned. The windscreen glass is new. Completely re-trimmed, the interior features navy blue leather upholstery with white piping.
Since the restoration's completion in January 2011 the Healey has been driven for approximately 200 dry miles only. The engine oil pressure and running temperature are normal and it is ready to use. The car is offered with the aforementioned BMIHT Certificate, sundry restoration invoices, current MoT/tax and Swansea V5 registration document. A set of five wire wheels (requiring painting) is available via separate negotiation with the vendor.

Auction description:
The Salon Privé Sale 2017
1958 Austin Healey 100/6
Lot No.: 214
Registration: 623 YUD
Chassis Number: BN6-L/3516
Engine Number: 26D-U-H/70390
Number of cylinders: 6
CC: 2600
Year of Manufacture: 1958
Estimate (£): 50,000 - 55,000

The BN6 was the final development of the Healey 100/6 two-seater roadster before being replaced by the Healey 3000 (BT7) in 1959. Chassis no BN6-L/3516 was built at MG's Abingdon works between the 30th September and 2nd October 1958 and shipped to a dealer in San Francisco on the 13th of October.

After 32 years of enjoying life in the States and with 54,000 miles on the odometer, this 'Big Healey' crossed the Atlantic once again and joined the collection of a Channel Islands resident who is a long-term Healey enthusiast. He decided to carry out a 'nut and bolt' restoration with great attention to detail hoping to achieve a Concours winning standard.

The six-port, cylinder head has been reconditioned and converted to unleaded compatibility with new valves, valve seats, seals etc. The block was cleaned inside and out, re-bored to +0.020 and fitted with new pistons and rings and top end bearings. The crank shaft was within 0.0005 of original so polished only and refitted with new bearings, thrust washers, big end bolts and main bearing nuts. The timing chain and tensioner have been replaced and the water pump reconditioned. All oil and waterways in the block and cylinder head were cleaned and the core plugs renewed.

The rear axle and differential were dismantled, cleaned and assembled using new parts where required, and the clutch and gearbox were fully reconditioned using new parts. The steering and braking systems have been completely overhauled and new tyres fitted.

All electrical components have either been overhauled or replaced with new items including a complete new braided wiring harness. A new aluminium fuel tank has been fitted along with new fuel lines and fuel pump and the carburettors have been fully reconditioned and set up appropriately. A complete, stainless steel, exhaust system and brackets were fitted.

Whenever possible, the original exterior trim has been re-chromed to a very high standard with new brightwork added only when necessary. The hood and tonneau cover are new, the side screens have been reconditioned, and the windscreen glass is new. The interior was completely retrimmed to an extremely high standard and features Navy Blue leather upholstery with white piping and well-fitted carpets in Navy Blue

Finally, after weeks of preparation, the Healey was carefully repainted in period Ice Blue over Old English White and the tight shut lines and depth of finish will reward any inspection. We understand the car is as immaculate underneath as it is on top.

Since this extensive restoration to Concours standard, the car has been driven approximately 200 miles in the Jersey sunshine and any little rattles or niggles eradicated. It comes to auction with all import taxes paid and is now ready to enjoy and perhaps re-imagine the excitement its first owner must have felt as the Healey burbled up and down the hills of San Francisco nearly 60 years ago.
