‘PFO’ has come from long-term ownership dating back to 1992. An Austin Healey 100/6, this desirable two-seater has a build date of 16th May 1958. ‘PFO’ was originally destined for export to the USA in left-hand drive specification and finished in Ivory White with a Red interior and a Black soft-top hood. Further to the USA specification, there is a record of delivery with a laminated windscreen, heater, wire wheels and overdrive. ‘PFO’ was repatriated back to the UK from a car-friendly Texas climate in 1992; there is correspondence regarding the import from Texas on file.
An older restoration c.1995-1996, there is a quantity of old invoices and correspondence relating to the extensive restoration of the 100/6 by the Midland Austin Healey Centre. Correspondence refers to a new radiator, carburettors and linkages, a full set of seals and floor pans. There had been a full repaint and retrim back to the car’s original colour scheme and trim. Photos on file, show the car in Texas wearing red paintwork. Subsequently, post-restoration, the car lay little-used, for many years. In October of 2023, Moorland Classic Cars provided services to finally get the 100/6 back onto the road. At a cost of some £5,000, the mechanical work to recommission ‘PFO’ included a new 6v battery, a clutch master and slave cylinder, a brake and handbrake overhaul, aluminium petrol tank, wheel bearings and an overhaul of the front and rear suspension and the charging system. The engine bay and underside were steam cleaned to remove old Waxoyl and the wheels were cleaned and degreased. The engine was got to a running condition, with the oil pressure checked and the carburettor adjusted. The exhaust was cleaned and painted. The car then went through an MOT and successfully received the ‘ticket’ until 6th August 2024.
The 100/6 is offered with a current MOT on file, a collection of old invoices, old MOT paperwork and some tax discs, a BMIHT Certificate and the aforementioned pieces of import correspondence and documentation.
