The Austin-Healey 100 was a sports car built between 1953 and 1956 by the British Motor Corporation. The model was developed by the celebrated Donald Healey to be produced in-house by Healey's small car company in Warwick and based on Austin A90 Atlantic mechanicals. Healey built a single "Healey Hundred" for the 1952 London Motor Show, and the design impressed Leonard Lord, Managing Director of Austin, so much that a deal was struck with Healey to build it in quantity at Austin's Longbridge factory. The car was renamed the Austin-Healey 100, selected from the car's ability to reach 100 mph, then a remarkable figure for a production car.
This fabulous Healey was delivered new in Paris on 6th January 1956. Still fitted with its matching numbers engine and gearbo
