Vehicle Original VIN : BN1L223868 Nicely done older restoration still in fantastic shape. Twice completed the California Mille rally. Beautiful blue leather interior, properly tuned and sorted, drives superbly. Full weather equipment included. A desirable early Healey in perfect condition for driving events. The Austin-Healey partnership resulted in some of the finest British sports cars of the period. Bigger and more robust than much of their competitors, the Healeys were renowned for their high-speed comfort and ability to traverse long distances at high speeds without fatigue. Later versions were successful at LeMans and other racing venues, and like many craft-built sports cars, racing improved the breed. This particular 1955 100-4 BN1 is an early production Austin-Healey that has been sympathetically upgraded with details from the 100M, including the louvered bonnet with leather strap, giving it a distinctive look. It’s probably also worth noting that the 100-4 is the only Healey with the dramatic folding windshield, its signature feature, and it really does transform the car. With a restoration that’s approaching its 10th birthday, it remains in first-rate condition thanks to a conscientious owner who cared about making the car right as much as he cared about making it pretty. The two-tone Ice Blue over English White color combination is iconic on the Healeys and looks as good here as it ever did. Excellent bodywork ensures that the doors close properly, the louvered hood fits right, and panel gaps are even throughout. They probably weren’t this nice when they came out of the factory. You’ll also find excellent chrome trim—just enough to make the 100-4 sparkle without looking weighty. After all, performance was the car’s reason for existing. Blue leather bucket seats anchor a surprisingly comfortable and spacious cabin that’s more luxurious than your average MG or Triumph. The big three-spoke banjo steering wheel is in your lap, which was how cars were back then, and the shifter—complete with quirky shift pattern—is right up against your thigh. They spent the time to make it right for people who wanted to use the car in combat. Beautiful plush carpets help with the upscale feel and also control noise and heat, making this a comfortable place to spend an afternoon on your favorite winding road. All the factory Smiths gauges are fully operational, as are the lights and other ancillaries. Overdrive was standard on the 100-4, functional on 2nd and 3rd gear and controlled by a big chrome toggle switch on the dash—just about where you fingers can flick it at will. Of note, this car has a matching blue vinyl folding top, full side curtains, as well as a cockpit tonneau.
