The "100" originally took its name from Donald Healey's goal of reaching 100 mph (160 km/h) with his new creation. It was retrospectively renamed 100/4 to differentiate it from the 100/6 that followed. The brainchild of Donald Healey, the Austin-Healey 100 was equipped with Austin mechanical components, including the sturdy 2.6-liter four-cylinder from the A90 Atlantic. The particularly attractive design, a kind of archetypal British roadster, was the brainchild of Gerry Coker, and served as the basis for the entire line of "big Healey" cars that ended their careers with a 3-liter engine. Today, the 100 is considered to be the sportiest of the series: its more rustic appearance, four drums and unsophisticated mechanics with high torque at low revs make it an uncompromising machine. It's also capable of excellent performance, as demonstrated by its results in competition.
The model we present is a 100/4 type BN1 with its original engine and matching numbers, delivered new in California.
White and red in color, the car was fully restored in California, a state it never left until its arrival in France. Today, the car is in good overall condition., with the 100/4's specific folding windscreen, and the engine delivers good performance, as our test drive demonstrated.
