Here we have a lovely little car, perfect for the summer just around the corner! She is a 1957 Austin-Healey 100/4 BN4, Right Hand Drive, finished in Old English White with Red Leather interior! She has been comprehensively restored and is ready for her next owner!

The Austin-Healey 100 was revamped for 1956, BMC's 2.6-litre C-series six replacing the original four-cylinder Austin Atlantic engine, while at the same time the wheelbase was lengthened slightly to enable the inclusion of two occasional seats in the rear of the BN4 version. In 100/6 tune the pushrod six produced 102bhp - 12bhp more than its predecessor. Although stylistically similar to the 100, the 100/6 was easily distinguishable by its 'crinkle' radiator grille and bonnet-top air intake. Austin-Healeys of the 1950s/60s exemplified the best of British for those on a budget in period. Naturally behind Aston Martin, Frazer Nash and Jaguar, but ahead of Triumph and MG.

This is a rare Longbridge car that was built on the 15th February 1957. It has undergone a meticulous, no expense spared restoration. The car was originally registered in Holland but has now been converted to right hand drive. The car has had all parts removed down to the bare chassis, which was stripped to bare metal, treated for rust prevention and repainted. All of the removed parts where either repaired, restored or replaced as new. The engine gearbox and overdrive have been overhauled with the Engine modified to run on unleaded petrol. Braking system was upgraded to 3000 spec with the front disc brakes having been replaced with servo dual master cylinder. It has all new brake pipes and fittings. A new clutch and complete exhaust system.

The Interior has been Restored with new red carpets and trim. New red leather seats. in addition there are All new tyres, New black hood, New chrome bumpers and chrome trim. The front section of the front aluminium shroud has been replaced with New aluminium wings and doors. The bodywork has been refinished in Old English White cellulose paint, as original. The car has only covered about 500 miles since the completion of the restoration.

This is a rare opportunity to buy a restored car in this price bracket! The car restoration was complete but was not completed to concours standard, rather to a wonderful regular use standard, as you can see in the photos. She is ready for her next owner!
