Description

The purest of all Austin-Healeys is the 100. It has a powerful 2,6 Litre 4-cilinder, that offers plenty of torque and a fantastic soundtrack. As it is eligible for a lot of historic events like Mille Miglia or similar, these cars are quite sought-after and due to their rarity a rather sound investment.

This particular car was restored fifteen years ago, and is still in excellent condition. It has matching numbers, and still equipped with the original and correct 3-speed gearbox with overdrive. For better performance, the engine has been upgraded to 100M specification, with a pair of H6 SU carburetors and Le Mans inlet manifolds and airbox. The car comes with a very rare Universal Laminations hardtop finished in white, and has of course a softtop as well (which is finished in matching red). The sidescreens are included as well, and fit both soft and hard top. This is a very sporty little roadster, well prepared and a real pleasure to drive. Ready for Mille Miglia or any other serious historic events. This example is an original RHD car, but now with a Belgian registration.

This great Austin-Healey is ready for the summer, and waiting for a good new home. Now available in our showroom for viewing and testing.
