The Austin-Healey 100/4 was designed as a sports car, and it certainly lived up to that reputation.
It was fast, agile, and responsive, and it quickly became popular with racing enthusiasts and weekend drivers alike.
The car's handling was superb, thanks to its independent front suspension and live rear axle, and its brakes were effective and reliable.
In 1955, the Austin-Healey 100/4 underwent some minor revisions, including the addition of a four-speed manual transmission and a more powerful engine that produced 100 horsepower.
The car was also offered in a new "100M" version, which featured a more aggressive camshaft and a higher compression ratio, resulting in even more power.
The Austin-Healey 100/4 was a very successful car for its time, and it helped establish Austin-Healey as a major player in the sports car market.
