An example incomparable to any other is this Austin Healey 100/4 1955 model. This Vehicle presents in a matching interior and exterior, 'Spruce' Green and are highly collectible presenting in this restored condition.

Masterfully restored with highest attention to detail, this stunning vehicle has had a bare metal respray of a mixed paint profile obtained from PPG USA that was then mixed in Australia. From its mounting plates completely re-manufactured to its wiring clips produced to the original specs- this vehicle has had no expense spared.

During the restoration process, a team of technical experts offered their ongoing advice during its rebuilt. Roger Moment USA Concours Committee and acknowledged expert as well as John Harper UK Healey Registrar and Healey Tech expert have given this vehicle a tick of approval. Its chrome work is noted to be a template of 'R. Gordon's Car' (previous USA concours winner).

In 2012 this 100/4 placed first in the Healey Concours 'Master Class Gold' USA which came as no surprise following its beautiful restoration.

Mechanically sound, its powered by a 2.6L, inline 4-cylinder engine that is pulled by a 3-speed manual transmission, resulting in a vehicle that handles nimble throughout corners and glides on straight roads.

Its exterior present new, and contrasts blissfully over its matching leathered interior. The seats in the cockpit have been completely restored and rebuilt and finishing with a high-grade green leather.
