Don’t miss this opportunity and become the new owner of this timeless classic Austin-Healey convertible! This is a NO RESERVE PRICE AUCTION.

Before the start of the Earls Court Motor Show, Leonard Lord, the director of Austin, discovered the Donald Healey 100 at the Donald Healey stand. Before the motor show opened, Leonard Lord bought the rights to the Donald Healey 100. At the motor show, Austin and Donald Healey presented the Austin-Healey 100.

The 100-4 BN-2 ceased production after only a year, in 1956. Only 4,604 units were built during this short period, only a small percentage remains nowadays. In addition to the improvements compared to the 100/4 BN1, the lower production number makes the 100/4 BN2 highly sought after amongst collectors and enthusiasts.

This Austin Healey starts instantly and idles nicely. It shifts smoothly and powerfully through all gears and brakes properly. The car looks good with its Old English White paint and the chrome still looks nice.

The car had a frame-off restoration about 15 years ago, it’s really noticeable. The (matching numbers) engine was also overhauled during the restoration, the engine bay looks very well maintained. The bottom of the car still looks like new. The navy blue interior (with white piping) still looks very much like in the photos. The soft-top (with side windows) still looks very good.

These early Austin-Healey convertibles are offered less and less often, so don't wait too long and become the new owner of this piece of British pride!
