1955 AUSTIN HEALEY 100 M spec.
4 cylinder 2660cc. 3 Speed with overdrive
Original Right hand drive BN1 with matching numbers. It has a Heritage Certificate, continuation log book and it carries it's original registration number. Reno red with black leather piped in red.
From 1959 to 1987 there were 5 recorded keepers. It was purchased in '87 from a gentleman in Essex who had owned the car since 1965. It needed extensive restoration.
The restoration took from 1987 till 2004 and was largely carried out by Buskell Engineering. There are stacks of pictures in the file of the car as it was transformed through the various stages. From the original tired car being craned off a lorry, down to the bare chassis and all its components and then to gradually being built up to the beautifully restored car you saw today. The owner during that period sourced a lot of the parts and there are reams of correspondence in the file with various suppliers and also John Wheatley; an owner and authority on the 100. Fitted with aluminium wings.
I have driven this car extensively and can attest to its superb qualities. Great performance with a well balanced torquey engine. Superb.
