This 1957 Austin Healey BN4 100/6 is a superb example of this much loved true British sports car and it has been with its present owner for the last four years since it was imported in 1993.

The car is painted in Black and Red with the complementary interior trim also in Black and Red and it has benefitted from a complete bare metal respray - they are the correct colours - and at the same time it was converted to right hand drive format. The chrome has been refurbished as have the wire wheels and the leather interior and the car has also benefitted from the fitment of a lot of new parts during the improvements.

It has the four speed gearbox with overdrive, a Heritage Certificate and a current M.O.T. test until August of this year. It has been lovingly restored and cared for by its owner who is an enthusiastic member of the Owners Club and the mileage of this superb car is guaranteed at 88000 miles.

Race Retro Collectors' Car Sale 2024

AUSTIN-HEALEY 100/6

Registration Number XVS 770

MOT Expiry Exempt

Chassis Number BN4-L-0/36589

Engine Number 1C-H/36941

Transmission Manual

Body Colour Black/Colorado Red

Simply stunning in Jet Black over Colorado Red, this 2+2 BN4 has been maintained to the highest order and presents in wonderful condition.

Amongst Big Healey aficionados, the 100/6 is the one to have in terms of purity. The earlier 100/4s, whilst gorgeous to look at were a bit "agricultural" and are now becoming very expensive whilst the later 3000s were being adorned with more and more creature comforts with the consequential increase in weight. As long as the 100/6 was properly set up with attention to camber and castor and all the other factors in suspension geometry, they handled superbly and were a dream to drive. With the top down, the burble from the exhaust note was a delight in a fifties, six-cylinder, down a country lane in a black and white movie, sort of way and on the overrun had more "snap, crackle and pop" than a box of Rice Crispies.

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?
