“A four-seater, UK registered, with lightened and balanced flywheel, the original engine has been uprated and bored out to 3.0 litre.” The original engine has been uprated and bored out to 3.0 litre.

This remarkable example of Healey’s genius is a 1958 100-6 BN4 model. The “6” designates the introduction of the six-cylinder BMC C-Series engine from the Austin Westminster which replaced the four-cylinder unit fitted to the earlier cars. The BN4 signifies the car’s 2+2 configuration. Our car’s chassis number confirms it as a factory right hand drive model, ticking all the key Healey 100 boxes.

It seems this fine example spent the bulk of its life in the dry and rust-inhibiting climate of South Africa. By 2019 the 100 had returned to its country of origin by being re-imported to the UK. The Healey was first registered here in September 2020. For the next year or so the car underwent a full and thorough restoration. All aspects of the car were addressed including body and paintwork, interior and mechanicals. The original 2.6L engine was bored out to 3 litres and a lightened and balanced flywheel was fitted. Since the restoration no more than a couple of hundred miles have been covered.

This sublime example is now offered for sale by its first and only UK registered keeper. For those with a penchant for “proper” British sports cars in the right colour and optimum specification, this has to be the car for you.

Corker’s accomplished design seemed to represent an architype for a 1950’s British sports car with complex curves and intriguing details combining to create a deceptively simple overall treatment. This is showcased perfectly in our British Racing Green example – surely the optimum livery. Accompanying records document the Healey undergoing a full respray and body restoration in 2021. As a result, the paintwork and bodywork appear to be in excellent condition throughout. A deep and bright lustre emanates from every panel and the panel gaps are pin sharp and faithfully symmetrical, the seller says "the panel gaps on the car which are incredible for a Healey, they took a lot of time, effort and expense and were all done before the car went for paint and not included on the paint invoice".

The gleaming brightwork of the 100 contrasts dramatically with the BRG paintwork. The front profile of the car positively drips with bright and lustrous chrome with bumper, over-riders, elliptical radiator grill, headlight bezels and bonnet scoop grill all gleaming. The “100” lightening bolt model badge and Healey winged motif complete the look.

Headlamps, diminutive taillights, wing mirrors and windscreen glass all appear clear and un-fogged with no signs of any imperfections. Weather protection is by way of a black vinyl tonneau cover. This is centrally zipped to allow for use when just the driver is in situ.

Our car sits on a set of 60 cross spoked, 15-inch wire wheels which are finished in hardwearing deep chrome and present in a pristine condition. These are affixed at the centres with chromed, twin eared spinners and are shod with a matching set of General period style radial tyres in a 185 SR15 configuration.

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?
