Description

1957 – Austin Healey 100/6

Chassis n°: BN4L043682
French registration papers as historic vehicle

- Built for racing
- 3-liter engine
- Eligible to most historic racing events

The model we are presenting was first put on the road on September 14, 1957 in the United States. Its current owner bought it from a Dutch friend in 1988. He quickly decided to modify his Austin Healey to participate in historic rallies. The interior of the car was dismantled and then disc brakes, a 4-point roll bar and a polyester hard top were installed. The car will then participate in several Alpine Cups. In 1994 at the Antibes rally, the 6-cylinder crankshaft broke down, so its owner decided to change engine, his choice was a 3000 more powerful engine. Three Weber double-body carburetors will be installed, as well as a suitable exhaust manifold with a side outlet. After these mechanical changes, the car will participate in the Monte Carlo Historic, the Rallye de Nice Côte d'Azur or the 100 Tours de Ledenon. In 2017, it was made more reliable again in order to participate in the historic Tour of Corsica. She will finish the race without any technical problems. Our 100/6 will be sold with an original grille, two bumpers, a soft top, a tonneau cover and four spoke wheels with Avon tires for track use. Over the years this Austin Healey has proved to be reliable, efficient and robust, it is now looking for a new pilot to bring her back to the track or at the start of a special stage.
